    Hello The GOO, I see you are in WA! Check into the regional forum for the Pacific Northwest and say hello.

    Do you still BMX, or have you gone to road cycling only? Have you tried CL for a good used bike?

    Welcome to BF!

    Haha yea, Craigslist doesn't have any good bikes for my price range. 400-500 dollars. I'm looking at getting a Windsor Bristol seems to be decent.

    Hello TG, the Windsor is a decent bike, but has cheaper components on it. You could look at upgrading later on--switching out the Sora components for Tiagra, etc.

    It will work just fine for you for a few years, but be aware that a lot of local bike shops don't always want to work on bikes which were bought on the internet...

    In a few years, if you've really gotten into cycling, you may want to get a bike with better components, but the Windsor should be just fine for the moment.
