    so, does this classify as a moped?

    This is my road bike. A Giant Seek1. Just a good little commuter nothing too special but serves me well. Did a short 5km rip on it today. Loving it.

    That's a great bike to ride. I advised a friend to pick one of these up a year or two ago.

    I got in super duper really bad shape and around 2009/10 I decided I was going to do something about it. I pulled down a GT TImberline that hadn't seen the light of day in a decade or more and started riding it around the local parks trail, which was about a mile. I thought I was going to die the first few times. Long story super short, I picked up a road bike some time later, went on to work for a bike shop. That was completely amazing by itself and I was there for all the group rides. By 2014 I was in the best shape of my life after 20 YO. I was regularly riding 40-60 miles three and four times a week. I rode my first, and last "almost" English Century (as opposed to metric) in 2013. I was 7 miles short and completely spent as I rode in on the SAG Wagon.

    Being at the bike shop I was able to get some great deals, and among them was a 2013 Specialized Roubaix Elite. Super nice bike. I got into doing group rides up in Atlanta with Mass and Mobile Social and ended up going with a Single Speed bike at first, and then ended up with another GT "hybrid" style bike. I still own those, but had a couple of Catrike recumbents, two different road bikes (one was the rain bike, of course) and requisite bikes for the wife and my son.

    Unfortunately a turn in time and along the line some aspects of my health...I think I rode the GT city bike one or two times total last year. I can't even mount the Specialized because I am over the safe weight for it's seat mast and stays....so, they sit in the garage and get deeper in dust. I REALLY should decide to ride that path again.

    Your best bet is to check on Pinkbike.com have your specs and you can see what other same/similar models are priced at.

    It's starting to get spring-ish here, dusted off the bike on Wednesday, de-greased the chain and cassette Friday. Now I'm trying to get my wind back. Always looking for Strava followers so we can keep each other accountable, in a supporting way.

    I bought myself a Giant Roam 1 Disc a year ago. The bike is great, solid. Very durable, I fell once - not a single damage on the bike (I got a bad section of the road).

    Living in MN my bikes are Now packed away for the winter now, but I’ve got a Jamis Satellite Comp and a Bianchi Volpe that I rotate between in the spring/summer/fall.

    They’re good bikes, but I’ve ridden them both pretty hard over the years and they don’t seem to be overly reliable anymore. Next summer I might treat myself to a new bike and possibly try some bike packing trips.

    I think about selling my cyclocross bike and getting some kind of aero road weapon every so often, then I hear a story like that. I should have died on it when I was 19 and in good shape, but that wasn’t anyone’s fault at all.

    That’s really sucks. I don’t like riding on the road for that reason. It seems like everyone is doing something else while driving. I’ve settled on riding my road bike on bike trails and have been thinking about picking up a mountain bike or gravel bike to ride single track and the rougher bike paths.

    it was also a birthday ride

    the "tri guys" do it every year around this time

    at least the driver stayed, far too often people just leave dead cyclists on the road and take off

    no they still haven't released "what" happened.. just the facts, driver of box truck swerved out of their lane, ran into the back of the support vehicle, which had people drafting behind it, and then the subaru hit the people that were in front of it as well..

    this unfortunately turns into one of those "so much for healthy living" kind of arguments in my head, the lady who died, i knew from my time working at my LBS, one of the fittest people i know, like 4"10 and all muscle. and less than a year older than me

    Well, I went out for a cruise today and ended up doing my first half century. I'm pretty excited, my wife could care less.
