I guess I will go first. You probably already know I have several bicycles if you follow this group. I will spare you the details of all of them and just tell you about my Challenge Fujin SL II. It is manufactured in Holland, Like all my bikes it is a recumbent. A recumbent lowracer. The SL stands for super lite. It is a mixture of aluminum and carbon fiber construction. With its low profile it is very aero dynamic and very fast. Best of all it is very comfortable. I like to use this bike for doing centuries. If you have any questions about this or any of my bikes I would be glad to answer them for you.
I have two road bikes, a Specialized Sequoia Elite and an Orbea Opal - For most of my rides I'm on my Orbea Opal - Carbon frame, Shimano Ultegra components. Rode 60 miles with the club today up to the top of Mt. Tamalpais - 60+ miles with 5800 feet of climbing. from sea level to Max Elev 2460 ft.
Sounds like you are quite a seriously strong rider. 5800 feet is a good days climb. I have a couple of friend who have Orbea road bikes. They are really beautifully made carbon bikes. Which bike do you like the best? Your Orbea or your Specialized.
Hello Everyone. I have been a BMX racer for over 15 years and the knees are not keeping up with it so I bought a road bike last year and started working toward a century ride. I bought a Cannondale Six 6. It's Been great and it was a "Last years Model" So i got it brand new off the floor for only $800. I love riding but the weather has limited me so far and i can't wait to start this season. I'll post some pics of it soon, any tips and advice would be great! Thanks.
