Hi to all, from Charlotte, NC.
I've been a visitor on this site for a couple of weeks...Great Forum! I was an avid rider for many years...then stopped riding for a decade or so...and now I've just started riding again. I'm currently riding a road bike (Ross Centaur, pink & white, beautiful...but not my color choice). I'm keeping my eyes open for my 'next road bike' and I've been perusing the wealth of info here on BF. I also sometimes ride my old hybrid/mtn.bike (80's Lotus, heavy & built like a tank...must be made out of concrete). Since I've just started riding again, I'm not really that comfortable with fast bikes (or slow ones either)...that's why I like the 'clunkers' and that's why my User Name is 'Clunker.' Best Wishes to all.
