    NO Bike

    Hi All.
    It's true. I am a member of bikeforums yet I do not own a bike. In fact, I am really getting interested in road biking and I am taking all the steps to start out right. My wife and I have been researchin and test riding bikes all summer, waiting for some good deals to roll in. Hopefully I can soon contribute to the forum with actually bike knowledge. Until then, I'll yield as I drive by.

    Welcome to the insanity!

    Find a good bike and enjoy yourself!

    Don't research it to death beaverpond. You can blow an entire season of enjoyment trying to save 20 bucks. Life is short and you can't take it with you.

    I agree with that... good to research and test out some bikes, but don't go overboard! The season is flying by.

    or you can get one without brakes, contraptions, or a helmet and that would be fun too. lots of options out there, just ride.

    I appreciate the advice. Any advice on the best places to find a road bike?

    To add to my intro... Since I do not have the authority to post on the WTB list, I thought I'd throw it out here. I want to buy two road bikes with min. Shimano 105 components for under $1000. Can it be done? Can anyone help a pedestrian out? 54 cm for both. (one could possibly be a 56 if its compact???)
