Hello from Phoenix, Arizona

Hi folks. I've been an avid off-road cyclist for the past 10+ years but recently been riding a 2010 Roubaix Expert (stock + Syntace P6, Gobi, Look pedals) and enjoying it, especially now that I've got the fit dialed in better. I love the sheer speed, telepathic handling, and freedom to explore Phoenix metro at night. Am currently just jaunting about, visiting various urban parks, and doing the occasional South Mountain summit climb.

Currently running a 100mm x 28d stem but a 110x30 is on the way (I'm all legs).

Thanks. Exploring road riding has been interesting. I like the trend towards "all-road" riding. And it's refreshing that, compared to modern full-suspension bikes, road riding is cheaper and demands less maintenance.
