A lot of tech has rolled off the line in the last 25 years. Good time to be a cyclist! My first bike was a Trek 7000 mtn bike.

My wife has been a triathlete since 2008. Most of her friends are Tri geeks which means i'm part tri geek by association. lol

I have great respect for triathletes. Running is pure aerobic capacity, cycling has a strength component, and swimming is so dependent on form. The training involved to blend the three successfully must be an art.
Between the wife and I, we have 7 bikes. Hers: Race, road, trainer, mtn. His: Road, trainer, mtn. I just picked up road biking in Dec 2015.

What have you ridden over the years?
