    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Fubar,
    Have you talked with bike club riders in your area or riders at your LBS?
    Also look in your library and bookstores. Borders or Barnes and Noble usually have a decent selection of cycling books.

    Keep us informed of your progress :thumbup: and lay off the donuts.

    Don't forget to wear your "Bike Forums" jersey so we'll recognize you on TV.

    Thanks technogirl, I think I can do it now. Wish me luck!!!

    Ba-dg-er,
    the main thing I want to work on is my anemic(spelled wrong I know) threshold.I geet up to my max heart rate way to quickly, and then I have a hard time recovering unless I stop. I have two hills just up the street, so I climb up,then go down, and go up the other side. I do this at about 17 mph until I feel like I am going to vomit, and then I take an easy spin around to recover, and then hit it again. I also found a copule things that help build bunny hop power and stuff like that.But my endurance/heart rate is my biggest concern.
    Booyah!!
