    New to the sport

    Hi everyone. I've been lurking the forum for a bit trying to search out advice on road bikes and what features to look for until i finally figured out that looking is useless w/o being able to use the search function.

    I'm from lansdale, PA, northwest of philly by about 45min. and currently i stay in reading, PA for school. I just purchased my first real bike.

    previously I had a BMX bike when i was 12 or so and various small 2nd hand mountain bikes. I purchased a 2006 Jamis Ventura Elite for about $700 with the tags still on the bike.

    I'm 21 years old and graduating from penn state in may. I plan on riding back and forth to school most days because i'm only about 5 miles from campus and my roommates have a different schedule then i do, and doing longer rides on weekends or during my free time. I recently started going to the gym to get back in shape, because i'd been slacking. every morning at 6:45 and then a 2nd session of cardio in the afternoon. I hope to add cycling as a sport and part of my routine to improve my fitness. I guess i'd be considered a clyde as well. I'm 5'10" and ~240lbs, pretty much solid though, always have been.

    well, i look forward to being a part of the community

    Welcome to BF.
    Lansdale? I was living/working in Lansdale when my youngest daughter was born. I know exactly where it is.

    Keep up the riding and those pounds will disappear.

    Hi SHOwned, there's at least one other member here from Lansdale...although I can't recall just who offhand. Well, at any rate, check out the regional sub forums, and say hi there too!

    Welcome to BF!
