Ok, I bought a road bike, in the vain attempt to keep up with Saksiri and Christian and Ami. Its this one: www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/2008/road/2_series/21/

So far, I took it out for 30 miles or so up Moody Road in Los Altos and back down Page Mill. Its definitely faster than my old bike (30.1 miles in 2 hrs 10 for average speed of 13.4; I usually get 11.6 last weekend according to my other bike computer, which is coincidentally the long term average on that bike), and in the flats I was easily cruising faster than normal.

Climbing is still a bitch though, I figure I have to work at that one :)

    Looks like a beast! I like it!

    Btw, you should join countless other other cyclists in adding your bike to Pedal Room! Your bike will be seen more and you can connect with more people. :-)
