Introductions - New to road biking.
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I just bought an entry level road bike last week (Specialized Allez Triple). I haven't riden for many years and I decided that a road bike was the way to go. I bought a hybrid bike a couple of years ago (when what I really wanted was a road bike) because several people told me that was the way I should go. I rode it about 3 times and hung it up in the garage. I'm looking forward to learning what I can from all of you here.
Just thought I would stop in and introduce myself. I'm Larry and I just purchased a Specialized Allez road bike. It's been many years since I rode a bike regularly but I've always liked road bikes. From the reading I've already done in the forum, it looks like I qualify to be a Clydesdale. 5'10" and 240lbs. I am down from a high of 275 last year and I want to keep heading in that direction. I'm hoping the bike will help. I live near the south entrance to DFW airport so if anyone here is nearby, let me know. I'm hoping to find some other riders in the area.
Cool - congrats on the weight lose. I was at 295 and now i am at 256. I am hoping that the gym in mornings and the added commute to work will help shed those other pounds.
