J.R.'s Bike Page

I don't know if anyone is even interested in any of this, but I have talked about it quite a bit on the podcast.  If you would like to follow my progress, you are more than welcome  to follow me on Strava.  I used to ride quite a bit, then got away from it, but on May    31st of last year I went for a ride and managed to do 2,488 miles by December 31st.  If    anyone ever has any questions about wanting to start riding, feel free to ask! 

What bike(s) do I ride?

I usually ride my Trek XO1 that I bought in 2009 for around $2,000.  It has an aluminum frame with carbon forks, so it’s not the lightest thing in the world, but other than a couple of new cassettes and chains, it has been a great bike.  The best thing I did was get professionally fitted to it and that has made a world of difference.  If you are ever in Jeff City, go see Mark at the Hartsburg Cycle Depot, he will take care of you!

I also have a Trek Madone 5.5 that I bought in 2008 for around $4,500.  It is a carbon fiber bike that can really fly.  I don’t ride it hardly at all, so it just sits around collecting dust.  If anyone would want to buy it (I’ll give ya a great price), I’d be happy to talk to you about it!  Someday soon I’m going to buy a cyclocross / gravel bike that is carbon fiber as well and retire the XO1.  Just a quick tip, if you want to ride a lot, get your body measured so the frame fits you as perfectly as it can (they are all different)!

What do I use to ride inside?
