Hey everyone, my name is Katie. I am new to both this forum and cycling.
I had been using a Trek bike that was given to me by my boyfriends mother. Being that she is 5'10 and I am 5'2, the bike was so large it was nearly impossible to ride comfortably. It also did not suit the things I wanted to do, it was more of a comfort cruiser style bike with a huge cushy seat. I wanted to go long distances, get speed and obviously get a bike that fit me.
Well, I went to my LBS and tried out some models, and after talking with the shop owners for a while and riding the ones I liked several times I walked out with a Scott Metrix.
Riding has been 10x more enjoyable with a bike suited to me and my needs.
I am still very much a beginner, and hope to learn more from the people on this forum :)
