    I love cycling. During Spring/Summer/Fall I normally go on two or three rides Mon thru Fri for an hour and about 3 hours on Saturday. I run the other days. Last year I rode in two centuries and a fun relay race called Saints to Sinners (http://www.saintstosinners.com/). Had a blast! Been mainly doing three spin classes a week to keep my legs going during the Winter. I do more running since I can handle it down to about 25 degrees outside.



    I'll have to follow this thread. Here are some pics from the St George century I rode in October 2012 (me on the left in the group picture):

        I'm commuting year round by bike and that's helping my sprint and keeping the legs hard. I've also got a new full carbon road bike in mind for 2013. Once the air temp warms up a bit I'll be headed for somewhere around 250 road miles per week. I usually keep that up until early fall when I get into the back country more and do some mountain climbing and backpacking. So far I'm keeping a good fitness level carried over from 2012 so 2013 looks promising.

            One of our local bike shops just started carrying Pinarello, so I may test ride one this spring. Debating getting one built up with Ultegra and going with it.




            I have thought about getting a trainer for the winter time... Do you have a recommendation? I have no idea what makes a good trainer or not...

                    Im hoping to get some decent miles in this year. I only did around 200 miles last summer, which was my first of having a road bike. I really like riding (particularly compared to running) but its hard to get anyone to ride with me. I just got a cheapo mt bike, as did a friend, so i am hoping we can hit some trails and have some fun! Any tips as far as how to not die on a trail for a newbie?

                        I've got a Kurt Kinetic - it takes some getting used to, but it actually is pretty nice all things considered.

                        In terms of feel, it's not nearly the same as riding on the road, but it is a useful method of keeping your legs in shape indoors.

                        i dunno.. they're cool bikes, but they're kinda statement pieces, huh?



                        i'd take me a caad 10 with a hot**************** wheelset, and blow the rest on guitars.. oh wait, i already did that.




                        A guy I work with is a died-in-the-wool Pinarello fan - he and his wife both ride Princes, and his love of them has me looking at them. My other target is a Felt Z4 - my Z85 has served me very well, and moving to carbon would be the next real step.

                            what you riding now, sir?



                            i miss the days of steel trevisos... the scimtar forks are a little too much for my linear sensibilities, for sure-- but i know a coupla guys around here who ride 'em, and they love them to death.



                            but lemme ask you this: why do you consider going to carbon a 'next real step'? not to say that there's anything wrong with 'em-- but why not aluminum, steel, Ti?

                                I'm asking myself the same question. Given the choice, I'm buying Ti. That way, I'll never have to buy another frame. Also, Ti is infinitely more crash proof than Carbon.
                                Look how hard my heart hurts.
                                I need help, give me the works.
