Just found these forums and purchased my first road bike yesterday. I found the archives helpful in my decision and look forward to helpful advice in the future.

I'm pretty new to cycling. I've done some in the past but as stated above this is my first road bike. I found what I'm pretty sure was a good deal on a new '04 Klein Aura V for $950 at a LBS. I was looking into the Cannondale R700 but after finding this deal and spending a little time on the Klein I jumped on it.

I live in Temecula, CA which is SE Riverside county and just north of San Diego County.
