Basically I have a million and one questions to ask. I don't know anyone else who rides and I just need alot of help. I am a 26 yrs old female, 5'7" abound 180lbs, I know, I'm overweight but that's not the point. I just bought a 2006 Trek 1000. I'm not a stranger to fitness, but while I was in the military I blew out my left knee and refuse to ever run again and am in search of a new cardio workout. I just need advice on anything and everything. My main riding surface is going to be country roads, the chip and seal type surface. What type of upgrades might I be wanting, since vibration is going to a problem. Also what is a good saddle that I should upgrade, because I can tell you already mine is pretty uncomfortable. If you want you are welcome to email me any tips as well, since I am asking for alot. [email protected] Thanks!!!
