That's a nice bike. Congrats on getting a good deal.

I like the idea of Di2, but given how fast I wear out drivetrains, I can't see it being worth the cost for me. At 6,000+ miles a year (with a lot of dusty gravel), I'd be replacing components every year.

Also, it's very cool to see people share both cycling and fishing passions. You don't see that very often.

^^^^ How do you ride 6,000+ miles a year on gravel and have time to fish?

Trainers rock if you cant get out during the day and you need to train for a long ride.

Back in the day I spent no less than 10 hours a week on a magnetic trainer. RBM used to do awesome spin classes - bring your own bike to the Tom Landry center. That was primarily to stay in shape during the winter months and back on the street when there was enough sunlight.

No question nothing replaces tooling down the road on two wheels!

That's serious, got alot going on there.

If you're on Strava, I think it was BBT, who put this group together, we're down to about 2 active riders.

I used to do a lot of road biking - solo and with a group. Some advice, buy some good tools to change tires and fix flats. carry an extra tube, learn how to change it on the fly before you get out on the road. Nothing sucks more than walking miles in biking shoes.
