Hello dveary, if you can't get enough information to make an informed decision, well, we aren't doing our job properly, or SOMETHING. But if you still have questions, feel free to ask .

Check out the regional forums, too.

Welcome to BF!

Henry Hudson

Along the Henry Hudson Trail which runs from Keyport to Atlantic Highlands about 11 miles one way. I have not made it all the way yet. The most I went is 16 miles round trip. I'm just starting out and I have a crappy $50 Kmart special which definitely is working against me. I will buy hybrid this month.
