Hey

Hey, I'm new and from south central Illinois. Looking to get into road bikes more now from the mountain bike and hybrid I currently ride.

Right now I have a mountain bike with a blown tire and a hybrid. Pretty soon that'll change though.

Alright I'll have to check those out.

Hmm, you probably can't get very far with the MTB...what's the hybrid?

Ya I've just been putting off getting the new tire.
The "hybrid" is a Glacier Point Magna?? It's really my dad's $200 walmart bike. I'm just using it until I can find a road bike.

Oh, you'll probably want to upgrade that after a few months. But think about it this way--it will make you really strong when you get a bike that does not weight forty pounds .
