This is a difficult question to frame properly, and might be impossible to answer.
I am riding a hybrid now. I want to get a road bike Ė I think.
My only concern is whether I will find a road bike comfortable enough to ride long distances. I havenít been on a road bike since the 70s. I turned 50 last August.
So, Iím wondering, how long do I need to give it to know whether I will be comfortable on a road bike? Can I tell in a 5 minute ride that it is either the bike for me, or not the bike for me?
I realize every person is different, and each individual body reacts differently. Perhaps there is no way to know short of riding one for awhile.
Iím just hoping there might be a consensus opinion.
