I just got into bicycling a few weeks ago. I bought an Orbea Vuelta from the excellent folks at Ultimate Bike at Matthews, NC. They have proved a treasure of solid support and information for a newbie like me. I'm struggling with all my various cycle computer functions and aggressive farm dogs chasing me, but I'm still having a blast. I started with 2 miles, then 4, then 9, 13, and now 25, but it takes me two hours!
