    Just an FYI, but not all bikes fit the same. I don't ride a 58 Cervelo, I prefer a 56, but I do
    ride a 58 Trek. So, going to get a fit is not necessarily going to put you on the right bike
    on-line.

    Yep, keep it up! Soreness will fade in time as you become stronger. :)

    Castelli, Gore, Craft, Bontrager etc... All make good winter gear. Any of these vendors will do
    you well, it will just be a matter of trying them on to see what you like best. My preferred
    vendor is C...

    I went to a Trek dealer today. I looked at the Trek 1.5 and the Trek Domane 2.3. I really want
    a bike I can grow into rather than a bike I will grow out of; it that makes since. I think

    Okay, well that starts to help kind of define what you are looking for. You could go with a CX
    bike and do as was suggested with switching tires based on what you are doing that day. Just
    understand t...

    Okay, spoke to my better half about this and her recommendation is to look at a steel frame or
    perhaps a comfort hybrid (no shock) but you would probably have to beef up the back wheel a
    bit. With tha...

    Welcome to Two Spoke! As mentioned, it is probably best to visit a bike shop and talk to them
    to see what they would recommend. Your weight would be a major concern and most likely they
    would have to ...

    Welcome to Two Spoke!What kind of riding are you going to be doing? That will direct you to the
    bike you should purchase. If you are only riding on the road, a CX bike would be okay, but you
    would be ...

    What size is the bike? If you flipped the stem, your back angle may be too aggressive for you
    causing you to kink your neck to look up. You say it is fitted well, but I now have my doubts
    about that. ...

    Does your helmet have a visor? If so, ditch it! Your body angle is too sharp to be looking
    under a visor.
