New but not new...

Greetings from MI.

New to the forum but not new to riding. Been riding bikes off and on since I was about 8 or 9. Single speeds, Hi-risers, 10 speeds w/frame mounted shifters for fun and a trike everyday at work with about 25 pounds of tools in a box mounted over the rear axle.

I recently upgraded my bike of choice from mountain to fitness and I am loving the new experience. Even thinking about possibly doing a marathon or two this coming fall.

2016 Specialized Sport Disc - Hyper/Indigo/Moto Orange (love that color combo)

Welcome. Lots of good information and fun dialogue here. Enjoy yourself.

My wife looked at that exact Specialized bike yesterday. They didn't have her size in stock for her to try out. I want her to get it just because of the color scheme.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

What did you end up getting for your wife?

She got a Giant Liv. The woman specific model fit her perfectly. I think the only real difference though is a shorter stem, narrower bars, and saddle.
