Hey everyone, I've been lurking around for a few days and thought I'd just say what's up... I'm in the market now for my first road bike and came here as an information resource. I live in Palo Alto (near Stanford) so the biking around here should be great. I'm hoping to get into some triathlons pretty quick here but opted out of a tri-bike because I've been advised to get used to a standard road bike first. Anyway, looking forward to chattin' it up and learning more about bikes!
