Hello from Lisle/Naperville, IL

Hello from Lisle, IL. Wanted to show off my new ride that I picked up yesterday. It's a 2015 Specialized Roubaix SL4 Comp Disc. Paid retail for the bike, but it includes a professional bike fitment, and boy does it make a world of difference. Fits like a glove.

My background is... I used to play hockey for almost 20 years, on and off in the past 6yrs. About 3 years ago I blew out my right knee for the 2nd time in my "career" (and left once 10yrs ago...), and my real career (private charter pilot) does not allow for me to take weeks or months off at a time. Unfortunately, as I round the corner to 30 years old in Nivember, I can feel my knees already having issues, and before I destroy them playing hockey, I best better keep that for the paid athletes. I have been looking at getting into a sport where I could keep my physical exhaustion I, for some reason like, and have it be low impact. Swimming is ok, tiring for sure, but gets repetitive, and I get bored quick in general. Cycling however, especially when exploring new found territories on a new steed, is pretty awesome. Plus, I love being outside. Love fishing, riding, boating, camping, etc...

Anyway, attached are pics of the new bike. I also have a 2013 Giant Roam 3 w/disc brakes that I like using on family rides as they can't do 20mph unless it's downhill with a tailwind, lol. Enjoy the attached pics. Thanks.

P.S. Quality fish oil pills do wonders for hair/skin/nails/joints in case anyone has similar issues or other aching joints.

Hey man! Welcome! Fish oil is almost all the same with slight variances on dosage being the bug difference and making sure it has omega 3's AND DHA. Also, I only buy orange flavored fish oil so if you burp it won't smell like a Norwegian fishing boat coming out of your mouth. Currently using Controlled Labs OxiMega. I like it because it is made in a GMP lab (FDA Certified and quality checked lab), and it's orange flavor. Plus, I'm a big proponent of MTS nutrition and you can only buy it on a couple sites. Owner of MTS lives in South Elgin, IL and is the CFO of TigerFitness. Honest and hard working guy that believes in quality and ethics.
