I just bought a new bike the other day and I'm so excited I just had to vent. I haven't bought a bike in over 20 years. My old Peugeot just wasn't cutting it anymore. That old steel frame was just too much for my old joints. I just picked up a base model Trek Hybrid 7100. I'm so out of touch with the cycle world I thought I'd start with something more basic and universal and go from there. I also bought one of those "clamp-on" third wheel bikes for my 4 year old and he loves it... although he was complaining a bit about his little butt being saddle sore. I'm mostly just excited to start riding regularly again. Working for a living and having a kid really threw a monkey wrench in my workout regimen. I used to do group rides like RAGBRAI (IA), SAAGBRAW (WI), BRAK (KS), BRAN (NB). Anyone still do those? Well I know SAAGBRAW is still around, except it's more of a family ride now.. not the bike-all-day-party-all-night ride it used to be which is probably good for me. The sheer scale of RAGBRAI was what made it fun 20 years ago. 10,000 bikers pulling into tiny Iowa farm towns to stay the night. The whole town would shut down and pretty much just cater to the bikers. Can anyone recommend a good cycle computer? Whoops! Looks like the sun is out! I'm cutting out of work early!
