    "You must really hate indoor workouts"
    Yes, would rather be outside riding.
    "I got winded just looking at that thing."
    With 9 pas settings and a twist throttle, no reason to get winded.
    Rode it a few weeks back in a few inches of snow, good times.

    My usual ride is my '97 Seven Cycles Axiom. Converted to carbon flat bars, 1/10 gearing 44t front ring 11-30 cassette, Sram twist shift, Magura hydraulic rim brakes, single Magura brake lever w/splitter and front/rear bias adjustment, Bebop pedals, etc, weighs 17.5 lbs.
    Converted to flat bars a few years back when my neck & shoulders couldn't do drop bars.

    Big part of why I moved to FL. The coolest ride I have had down here was last Sat. at 57° F. Had to wear lightweight tights, long sleeve thermal shirt + long sleeve thermal jersey & lightweight full finger gloves. Full winter gear is packed up still ( I had to dig that stuff out of boxes. Mistakenly thought I would never need it again)

    I live in 80 degrees all year except when visiting Illinois.
    I love it for a week, but I really love warm weather riding

    I ride all year long in the northeast. Doesn't matter if its 20 degrees. The only thing that keeps me off the road is snow or fresh black ice. I tried to do the trainer thing in the winter, but I hated it. I just need to be outdoors. Here is my road bike all decked out in her winter clothes (wheels, winter tires, fenders, mits, etc). Depressing, but functional... Image Unavailable, Please Login
