    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!

    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!
