    Hello from Connecticut!!!!

    Hello!

    I'm Andrew, I am sixteen, and I live in Connecticut. I have never really gotten into biking until recently. I shattered my pelvis at the beginning of last winter while I was snowboarding. In surgery, my sciatic nerve was bruised. My toes lost feeling and I suffered from "drop-foot" where it is basically impossible for me to lift my toes. This makes it extremely hard to walk and run. I figured out I could still bike, so I did. I rode my HARO V3 on all the ATV trails that are surrounding me. I have gotten very good compared to when I started.

    I've been searching for a long time now for a road bike to change up the pace a little. I still haven't gotten one, and now winter is closing in so its pretty frustrating. My budget is the main problem as I don't have a lot of money to work with. I just love to bike! Period

    Hi Andrew and welcome.
    If you know what size bike you ride you may find a good deal on craigslist.
