Hi, I'm Stuey and I'm new here.
I started a thread and have already been received warmly by quite a few of you already.
I jumped head first into the sport 10 days ago when I purchased a Trek 4300. I also wanted to say thank you. Because of some of the things I read here (along with my cousin's Trek opinions) I made the right choice in getting a bike from the LBS as opposed to a chain sporting goods store.
