Hi

Hi all. Just joined after reading a few threads trying to find some info on a new bike to buy.

I don't ride all that often but have been looking for something a bit lighter weight for daily use.

I currently have a 2001 Giant Rincon SE that I bought off someone in late 03 as part of a moving sale. Still works great but it's a little heavy for my liking anymore. I added some slicks a few years back to give it a little less resistance and that helped a bit.

I also have a 2004 LeMond road bike my mother gave me when she upgraded a few years ago. I'm a 5'6" guy but it fits.

Anyway looking forward to more information I can gather from the site.

Yeah she bought the LeMond when she started riding seriously and she didn't want to sell it when she got a newer bike so it came to me. She does rides all around the country now and RAGBRAI every year. Keeps quite active in her late 60's
