    I got my first road bike!

    So I posted a few weeks ago to get feedback on a road bike. After much research, I bought my first road bike.

    Since February I have been riding my Scattante Hybrid from Performance. It's a good bike, and was a very good starter bike to start riding more seriously. But I was ready for a road bike.

    So I got a red one, with the latest Shimano components, and a steel frame to support my weight. I got it a couple weeks ago, and it runs good. The handling is not as crisp as I had hoped for a road bike, but it will do. The brakes seem to be a little lacking, so I will try some different pads or change the brakes out.


    What do you guys think?




















    OK, I had to do that. Besides, aren't the Shimano 21 speed "Revo" shifters the latest? I think I saw some teams with them on the Tour.

    After much soul searching, I decided to get this so I can spend more time riding with my family, my new road bike will wait. This was $270 from Wal-Mart, I replaced the tires after the rear blew out before even riding it but overall it runs good. We have 2 daughters, they LOVE riding on it with me. And all the kids in the neighborhood want rides on it. I will post up a more in depth review in the tandem section with more pics when I get time. Overall, it is GREAT bang for the buck. With the replacement tires, and a cheap computer so the kids can see how fast we are going, I'm in this about $360 with tax and everything.

    OK, that was pretty darn funny.

    Do you have this constant feeling you are being followed?

    As a matter of fact, I do. Any idea why?
