This is a great site with very good information. I was a pretty good cyclist back in the late 80's (used to race CAT 2) but that was a long time and about 70 lbs ago. Got back into the swing of things early in 2004...bought a new bike (Specialized Allez Pro 27 w/full Dura-Ace...I'm a bit of a gear horse).

Did my first triathlon in 18 years this July and got completely hooked. Unfortunately, during my 2nd tri in September I was taken out by another rider (with .5 miles left in the bike leg) and sustained a broken clavicle and scapula (and lots of road rash)...ouch.

I probably have another 2 weeks or so until I am back in the saddle...I'm not sure which one since I've purchased two of them since the accident

Looking forward to getting back out there.

Hi CJ,
Welcome to Bike Forums! Wishing you a speedy recovery. I also ride with OCRR. They are a great group of people.
