Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

new horse in the stables

After an auto accident I sold my tri bike and road bike. Finally getting back to it. I've been doing crossfit for about 6 months and trying to get back into shape I'm feeling invigorated and ready to get back into the saddle . Bought me a carbon Trek and trying to get back into shape.

Picture attached

You can't just type "picture attached" and expect it to show up.

Is it a file on your computer or a link on the internet? Click on the little button above the text entry box when you're posting (the one that looks like a tiny little tree between the globe with the red X and the film strip) and go from there.

I think he's saying the picture is attached because he lost so much weight you can't even see him anymore. The picture really is attached.

Awesome looking pic, it looks as light as air and that stealth color is really working.

By the way, you have some serious cross chaining going on there. That's a great price too.

You also got the mandatory garage door for pics down as well.

The white bar tape and saddle look good!

The difference between a bike & horse is if you get tired of riding the bike it can be hooked to the garage ceiling, the horse be it ridden or not requires a constant flow of cash to support.
