hi everyone, joined up a bit ago and have been reading alot of posts.
im 17 and used to bike a ton but stopped biking when my back wheel split going over some random patch of frozen ground..i also got my licence so i stopped :S
anywho, i currently have some crappy full suspension mtb that i bought for 400 canadian..its really a piece and weighs a freaking ton right now i left it out at a friends land and we usually go on trips through rough trails.
..and my other bike, a peugot, that i had locked up in storage for 3 years finally got shipped over from south africa. its a hybrid type and is really light compared to the other pieces of junk i have
but enough of the past, im planning to buy a road bike (of approx 1200$ value..) realy soon - mainly for going to school and back and naturally riding just because its fun
anyway..i have a few questions about the components in road bikes but ill post those sometime in the other forums.
ah no it was a random name i found in some game, used it on a few message boards and was too lazy to think of something new
anyway, i was thinking of getting the Giant OCR 1, but going a bit cheaper and getting the OCR 2 or 3 might not be all that bad - seems that most people prefer not to go below shimano 105, but if tiagra isnt all that bad then it would save me plenty, and i could also sell it off eventually and buy soemthing better if all goes well.
