    Intro

    Hi everyone!
    Just a short intro to say "Hi". I'm 52 years young, live in Melbourne, Australia and ride an '07 Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc. Love the bike, and after a few years away from cycling I have returned. I bought my wife a ladies Hardrock for Christmas and she is really enjoying her bike. I want to have a go at some low-key XC races so need to get lots of kilometres (or 'miles' for our British and U.S. friends!!) under my belt. I've decided to buy a road bike for fitness training and had a look at the Spec Allez Comp, Giant OCR C2, and a Bianchi Via Nirone yesterday.... Instantly fell in love with the Bianchi in the Celeste colour so should pick it up next week!
    I'm a retired Air Force Warrant Officer Engineer, currently in my final year of a Bachelor of Arts Degree (double major in Psychology and Criminology) and work part time supervising Court Ordered parent visitations. Well, that's me in a nutshell and I look forward to becoming actively engaged on the forums. Thanks for the warm welcome, Joe!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Thanks for the welcome! I'll post some pics when I pick up the Bianchi. I took Sandra in on Saturday to show her the Bianchi and she thought it was "Very classy"!!! You gotta love a woman with such great taste!
