Hola

Hey everyone,

My name is Megan and I currently reside in Yardley, PA, a suburb northeast of Philly. I am an avid mountain biker and snowboarder and am slowly but surely making the transition to road bicycling. I have been reading the forums here for quite some time, just joined in September and today made my first post. I look forward to utilizing this great resource to learn more about the sport and bicycle maintenance. As a newbie, I appreciate all the knowledge that the more experienced folks on here will certainly provide.

Have a great day!

Hi Megan! The founder of BikeForums (Joe Gardner) and his wife (Heather aka Shadiya) are avid fans of the snow sports and cycling. What road bike are you looking at?

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.

Well, after much research, I am almost certain that I am going to go with the Giant OCR 2. From what I have read, it appears to have pretty decent components for the price and should be a great introductory bicycle. That is, unless they convince me otherwise at my local bicycle shop

So, having given you a few days, have you gotten the Giant yet?

I actually just bought my bike today. It got a little busy for me at work the past couple of weeks. Anyway, I am so so so excited!! It is a beautiful bike. I ended up getting a Giant Avail, which is the 2009 women specific version of the OCR. It will be ready for me to pick up next weekend. Yay!
