I got into cycling after reading The Masked Rider back in 1997 or 1998. I am a roadie, but am kicking around the idea of maybe buying a mountain bike and hitting the trails occasionally. I have a '09 Trek Madone that I absolutely love! I've already got a century under my belt for the season, and have at least 2 or 3 more planned before September. I don't commute by bike (I should...I live less than a mile from work) but in the full swing of biking season I am riding 120 to 150 miles a week.

Any other "bikers" lurking on this board?

Well hello. My very tall (6'2") 15 year old is pleading for a bike. He is interested in distance riding on pavement so we are looking for a road model. Any direction on makes and models that are good for starters. Any hints on what to look for in hunting for a entry level bike would be greatly appreciated.

RE: The cycling thread
Just finished watching the finish of the first stage of the Tour de France. So many crashes in the final moments and a dog in the road earlier. Very exciting. The dog's OK too! As for entry level bikes I'm not sure but if I had the money I'd love to own a Cervelo and not JUST 'cause they're Canadian either:

Cervelo sponsors a team in the Tour.

Sacred cows make the best hamburgers.

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

Seems like dogs are always getting nailed. Too bad for both.

RE: The cycling thread
Cervelo makes some great bikes, no doubt. They're one of the companies on my short list for my next bicycle:

Trek
Orbea
Cervelo
Scott


Normally, I get a chance to sit and watch parts of the Tour. Unfortunately, the holiday has had me hoppin' these past few days. Might have to hit up the web and see where I can track it down for a few stages...

I started cycling recently and am training to do the AIDS/LifeCycle ride in 2011. I love it. It is a great distraction from the stresses of my law practice, and it is helping to whip me back into shape.

RE: The cycling thread
A mate I go moutain biking with admitted the other day to wearing a "Mankini" as in the type of thing Borat wears, as a thermal layer. Then others admitted to wearing padded, ( and euphemistically called over here in the UK), "Budgie Smugglers". Not good at all - put me off my beer - I think this is taking cycling a bit too far!!
