    picked up a '12 Trek 3700 yesterday, got a pretty good deal on it, $459, The big bike shops had it for $529. Disc brakes, adjustable front shocks. I haven't had a bike since I got my licence, but i'm looking forward to doing some riding, especially off-road on all the state bike trails around my house. I've got to get a new seat though, my ass hurts like hell right now, just got back from a 9 mile ride.

    Nice!

    I wish the weather was nicer around here so I could take CX3 for a spin!

    I remember back in the day when I first rode a bike with disk brakes, talk about a wonderful experience. REALLY makes a difference when you are doing a long downhill single track where you are on you brakes for an hour straight.

    Enjoy the bike man, I'd love to do some mountain biking right now...

    All the bike trails around here are paved. Have fun! Even going one mile every other early morning to pick up groceries (with my new roomy panniers sitting on their new lighter, higher rack) while traffic is light, and the store is almost mine alone, is an exhilarating experience.

    On my days were I can just extend my range a bit, there is nothing more fun that pedaling through neighborhoods with their flower-strewn front yards, listening to the wind through the trees and the chirping of birds. ... Wait, I love pedaling... does this make me a pedaphile? :)

    Are you going to get a saddle-bag to hold emergency tools, innertubes, and minipump? Or will you carry them in a backpack while you ride?

    Edit: I hear Mt. Kilimanjaro calling Fiddy. Maybe he'll run into this guy there! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    A hilarious video from someone who used the Great Confluence bike trail that is closest to me (the trail, not the someone).

    Bah, I was there and could have done it if I wanted, and while it's a cool location and whatnot, it costs about $1,000, and really it's just a hike. Pass.

    The hand grips on that bike brought back a pleasant childhood memory. I had a similar pair on a cruddy old Huffy I kept upgrading... :heart:
