    Hey everyone. I'm not new to bicycling, far from it actually. I've just decided to try a new type of bike and riding. I just got a Trek Alpha 3 series 3500. It is a 2012 model and I picked it up today on sale for like 150 bucks below msrp. I know it's not the best hardtail out there but for my skill level it's just right. Was wondering if anyone else has ever had one of these bikes and what they thought of it, so far I've put about 15 miles on it and I'm pretty darn happy!

    Any bike that you enjoy riding is a good bike. Keep pedaling!

    Nice job. Keep it clean and the chain lubed, and you'll get good wear out of it.
