This is Foo. We rarely talk bikes. Mostly poo and sex. But welcome.

well, hello!
I see you like donuts. If that carries over to Pi, Pie, beef jerky, and quail, you'll fit right in.

We don't say hello either. (Right, MV!) We have a secret handshake. Well it's more of a footshake. Our Forum leader lost his hands in a simulated pirate fight at Disney World. Long story - don't ask.

But until you find out what the footshake is, no one will pay you much attention.

Welcome!

Don't be afraid of buying a used bike. That's where you get the best deals. My bikes are all 12 years old or older, and they work great.

just pickin' with you. I hope you know. Welcome and ask all the questions you want.

And like Michigander said, don't worry about getting a used bike. My first two bikes were used and I rode them religiously with little to no problems.

I was bikeless for a few months while on bikeforums. Just be patient and get the right one that's right for you. Especially the right size. Nothing like a bike that doesn't fit. It can make you hurt in places you didn't think had hurt potential.

You noticed the sign at the Foo's gates right? The one that says "those who enter here abandon all hope" or something like it...

and ... Welcome
