Bought my first Road Bike. Going to try and put 2K miles on it this year.

Do not have a picture but here is what I bought. Did not pay retail.

Just under 20 pounds. Could probably get to 19 changing wheels and pedals. That is not going to happen anytime soon.

I like BMC’s and that’s a sweet looking bike. Is it the one with Di2?

New was just below that. I did not pay near that much. If you are looking for something like this in a good deal let me know. I might be able to help.

Man I want a new bike bad, but it's not in the cards right now, really just need a smaller one, mines a 58, and for some reason the more I ride it, the more stretched out I feel. It’s only taken about 2700 miles... Not sure what I could sell it for, but it's a nice bike.

Maybe later this year, or next, big changes on the horizon for NB.

That's a freaking nice ride...50 a week seems way doable. Does that include any trainer time?

No indoor trainer for me yet. I will use my Hybrid on short runs on hills by the house. I think you can get more done is a short time on short all out rides than on indoor trainer. It just seems more real to me. But I have never done anything on indoor bike trainer.

We rode 34 miles today. It went pretty well. The hills were not bad at all. It was a nice day.

New bikes are like new guitars, awesome! That one is nice.

I still use the one I bought off my brother-in-law years ago that he was selling in his garage sale.

As far as I remember, it's a late 80s Specialized.

I like it. It serves it's purpose. I am not one of the legions of riders in my area, (Richardson) who go up and down Renner Road in hoards. I ride alone, around Cisco and Fujitsu, and their huge parking lots.
Mostly, I'm on the dirt trails on my mountain bike, but regardless, pedaling is awesome!
