Hello From Oregon

Hi everyone,

Im an engineering under grad at college right now. Classes get tough at times, but I get out on the bike as much as I can. I have been getting 50-150 miles per week this year depending on the weather conditions. If the weather turns bad I will go swim laps in the pool.

My parents were big cyclists, my dad did a dozen 200mile rides (one 248), and when I was younger we would go on a family ride or two a year. Sophomore year or high school I out grew my hybrid bike, and wanted a road bike. We picked up a 2011 trek 2.1. I put about 200 miles on it the first year, probably about 400 the second. I really got into biking this last spring and summer, and put 1,500 miles on it in the past year, for a total of ~2200.

as the name would suggest I have low sided a few times

Welcome!!!

The Trek sounds like a nice bike, and should serve you well. Just keep an eye on it around campus.

Engineering? Is that in Corvallis?

Hopefully you've gotten a chance to enjoy the sunshine this spring.

Thanks,
The trek is a nice bike, either its wheels are spinning, or it is tucked behind my closet. I have a $50 second hand bike that i ride around campus on.

welcome to the forum. If you are going to go down, a low side is the way to go.

As someone who has high side crashed a bike, I agree with obed7.
