I wanted a Trek 7700FX, but this was way better in price, and available to buy unlike the Trek.

I didn't buy it for "recreation", and don't want to piss the road guys off by a.) not having a full road bike, and b.) 44-32-22T cranks they may frown upon.

So what's your question? You do what you think's best for you and I'll do what I think's best for me.

The road forum is generally very friendly unless someone posts something really arrogant. For the most part, the dominant members are very accommodating and encouraging. I never felt out of place when I was posting while riding a comfort bike, it's more about style of riding really. Otherwise, commuting forum may be a good place, since that style is often used by commuters, and is also pretty friendly. Read around a bit and see, most people don't use just one forum.

You're lucky did you visit http://www.airborne.net/eready/janette/home.asp recently?
No longer available in NA. With a TI bike, I don't think anyone will have a problem on any of the forums.

I got the bike when they were clearing stuff out. got it for $1200 off @ $800. Huffy owns the rights to the name so they now sell US bikes under the name Flyte @ flyte1.com. They always used the Flyte name on parts, so the name quality and service carries over.
