I Picked up my first Bike on Wed evening (07 TREK 1000-SL). I took it out for a 5 mile loop Thur, and LOVED it... I even rode to work today (14 miles). I will say, that everybody's advice on here weather i followed it or not has been very instrumental, in my purchase, and my ride. This is a great online community.
While not everybody will like this bike, or the components, i purchased it off craigslist for $500 with about a half mile on it. It also included a halogen light kit, 2 helmets, upgraded seat and pedals, pump and new shoes that actually fit. Im Pumped. I have even been on mapmyrun.com to find some good rides around my house. If you guys havent checked out that site, its pretty cool.

Thanks to you all very much, and maybe ill see you out there...

Wayne:thumbsup:

I have a lot more experience - bought mine last Saturday... :) Rode the old one half-dozen times until then, so I'm basically just starting out too. Learning quite a bit here myself, but it sounds like you got a great deal.

There's also MapMyRide as well.

Hmm... why'd the original owner only ride it a half mile? Did they suddenly realize road biking would require effort? :lol:
