Lurker coming in from the cold


I've used the info in these forums countless times and figured it was finally time to register. I'm mostly a road rider but hope to get another mountain bike soon and get back on the trails too. My interest in cycling got me started in triathlons too. I actually did my first sprint tri on a Scott Tampico mountain bike with 26"x1.25" slicks and Brooks B17 saddle. I even had a rear rack on the bike during the race.

Times have changed and I now riding a 1999 Trek 2500 with Dura-Ace 7702 I picked up used from a local racer. I wrench on my bike and am enjoying the ride I get on my first pair of hand built (by me) wheels: Velocity Aerohead (OC in the rear) laced x3 to Dura-Ace 32h hubs with Sapim Race spokes.

Welcome to Bike Forums, Beans. I'm impressed that you did a triathlon with your mountain bike!

Since you like to build your own stuff, check out the Framebuilders and Bicycle Mechanics forums.
