    Hello from OKC

    I just joined the forum, after reading it for the last few days. Looks like a great group of people here. I am just getting back to riding. I have mostly been a mountain biker (2000 Raleigh M80, and '03Trek Liquid). I have several friends that have been after me to get into the road thing, and that is what brought me here a couple of days ago.

    I have not ridden the last couple of years till last week. I have been shopping for a road bike, and think I have it norrowed down to a Giant OCR1 or 2 and the '06 Cannondale R-800, or Specialized Allez. These seem to be a nice place to start. I still need to test ride these but those are what I am looking most closely at right now. I don't want to get into racing but will get into tours and charity rides. Maybe the Hotter than Hell 100 next year, and others around Oklahoma.... I just need to be fast enough to keep up with my friends.

    I am riding for fun and fitness. I got on a weightloss program in January and have lost 50lbs so far this year. I am still well into the clydesdale class (200+) but hope to be out by the end of the year.

    Anyway looking forward to getting back into this sport.

    Welcome and congrats on the weight loss progress! All the bikes listed are fine bikes so just pick the one you find most comfortable.
