About the bikes.

My first real bike was a 2004 Specialized Allez Triple.  I didn’t know what I was buying.  I just knew I wanted to buy a nice new bike.  I saw this one at a local bike shop near my home in Massachusetts and I bought it.  I rode it for a few years, all over south easter MA, and enjoyed it well enough.  As things happen, gears shifted, I lost interest in the road bike side of things, and I put my bike up for sale.  It sold the same day and the money went towards a new 29 inch Trek

.

The next bike, the one that got me started on my current path, was a 1998 Giant Sedona that I picked up at a yard sale.  It took some work to get it trail worthy, but it served me well until I couldn’t help but buy something new and shiny.

The current bike is a 2012 Trek Cobia.  I spent a good amount of time online, and questioning the bike shop mechanics.  I found I wanted a frame that fit, a good front shock, and I had decided that I wanted to go with the 29 inch wheel instead of the smaller 26 that the Giant was equipped with.
