Hello from University Place, WA

Hello! My name is Joel and I am from University Place, Washington. I am 14 years old and recently got into road biking. I have recently bought a road bike that i can use for this hobby. I joined this forum to meet many new people, get tips and tricks, and have an awesome time. Thank you so much, hope to see you on the forum!

I believe it is a K2 Mach 2.0. Works amazing from what Iíve done with it. I got it for around $280. Do you think thatís a good deal?

K2 is an interesting company, they make ski equipment. I don't know their road bikes that well. I've seen their mtbs around, some of them are pretty incredible. I'll have to take a look at the road division. As far as your deal, I'm not sure without seeing pictures of the Mach. After a few more posts (10) you'll be able to post pictures.

I surfed the web looking at K2, man those look nice. It appears they hit the market in 2004, What year is your manufacturing? And the groupo? Any modification?
