    Hi, I'm new here!

    Hi

    I don't even have a road bike, that's how much of a noob I am.

    I got back in the saddle after a looong layoff and now I have bike fever bad.

    So, hi!

    Did I say I was new here?

    Hi MONGO!, does this mean you have high aspirations, or are you just a Mel Brooks fan?

    What kind of bike were you looking to get?

    Hi, thanks for the welcome.

    The name is not a Blazing Saddles reference.
    What kind of bike were you looking to get?
    Well, I have a Fisher kaitai MTB/hybrid that I like a lot but I'm looking to get a nice road bike, not sure what but I've been looking hard at the Scott CR1 and lower priced Pinarello's.

    I've ridden the CR1, and it was very nice. Have no experience with Pinarellos, however.

    Enjoy your shopping experience .

    I don't have a road bike, either, and yet I ride every day. Welcome, Mongo, and Happy Pedalpalooza!
