New to Road Bikes

Hey Guys, names Chris from Nashville, I spent a year commuting on Hybrids and got a car, recently got back into commuting by bike. Bought a solid Jamis Satellite with crap components and a totaled brand new CAAD 8 and rebuilt the Jamis. Its a 105/ Tiagra setup, have not ridden it over 20 miles yet. Its a beauty to ride, much much more efficient than my Hybrids. Trying to post pictures of it but cannot find an upload link. Right now I am trying lose as much fat as possible, I really believe weight of the bike is going to factor very little into my times, but rather the rider will make the biggest changes. I currently commute to work 14 miles round trip. Don't have a power meter averaging 17 mph, looking to get closer to 20 before the end of fall.

Welcome to Bike Forums! Most find it easiest to post their pics on a free site like Photobucket and then post a link.

welcome to Bike Forums. You can also upload pics by clicking "Go Advanced", then click "Manage Attachments" and follow the easy directions.
Stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals. Lots of TN folks on here.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
