Yet another new cyclist here. I originally signed up for a triathlon and got into cycling that way. I have been working on a cheap mountain bike, but this past weekend went and bought a 2007 Specialized Allez Elite Double and I think I'm going to have to get into cycling because of it. I love riding the new bike and have been counting the hours until I get off work to go ride. Thanks for letting me post on your forums, and I look forward to getting into cycling on my new road bike!
