New from Pa.

Hi, I'm Jay and I live near Allentown, Pa. I have been riding for about 25 years. I have a 20 plus year old Cannondale crit bike that I still love. When I retired 2 years ago, my son thought that I needed a triple chain ring bike, so he bought me a Scattante road bike with lots of gears. We have plenty of hills around here so I get to use all those gears. This year I bought a Fiji Absolute 2.1 with 700-32 tires. I'm going to use the Fuji as a rail-trail bike. I'm hoping that it will be soon warm enough for me to take her for our first ride.
Jay

Welcome. Don't wait for the first test ride. Dress in layers and hit the road. I'm heading out shortly for a good 25 miles and it's about 28f. Little cold but what a way to get the day started.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome. I generally don't ride below 40, so when it hit 40 today I took the Fuji on it's first ride. Everything worked well. I'm going to replace the 11-32 cassette with a 12-21 cassette.

Hi Jay, welcome to the forums! I live in Montgomery County, not too far away. There's a lot of nice riding in SE PA. I hope you enjoy the forums!
