It's not about the bike...(1 post)

It's not about the bike...MXL02

Just a postscript to the thread below from a newbie asking about how to get into road biking for $500. I rode last night on the weekly Wednesday night ride from our LBS to downtown and back. It consists basically of sprints up to 25 -30 mph between traffic lights. It is pretty much out of my league, but the workout is great and I hang on as long as I can then drop out and limp home. The "kids" from the shop that ride with me, ride my cast off frames built up with whatever they can find around the shop, and they smoke me everytime...I take they usual amount of ribbing the next day, usually ending with me asking them to order a new motor for my bike, ;-), but the point I am trying to make is well known by most here...it's about the rider, not the bike.
