After having my mt. bike in mothballs for many months and myself in horrible shape, I have begun again to ride. I have lost 70 pounds and can now bicycle for 25 miles without passing out or dying half way up a small hill. I have been cycling about 30-50 miles a week for the last three months or so.
So, why am I here? I've decided to start looking at getting a road bike since riding 20+ miles on a mt. bike is probably a waste of effort. I want to get as much information as possible about selecting the right road bike with the best features that I can afford. I will post something on the road bike board about this. I am also here because I believe I will enjoy discussing local rides, and future upgrades on my soon-to-own bicycle.
