So I bit the bullet a few weeks back and bought this.

Trek 1.1

Pretty nice starter bike. Super light. It is the first road bike I have owned, and really rode. Still getting used to the riding position, and shifting, and riding on tires that are about as wide as one of my fingers.

It has been about 15 years since I have seriously rode, and it shows. But I am glad to be back out and riding. I have really missed it.
