    Hello from VA

    I've just recently begun road cycling. I look forward to learning more about the hobby, areas of interest, equipment, and people with the same interests.

    I would love to hear of some recommendations for online sales to tease me while I consider my upgrade and accessory options.

    Regards,
    Sam

    Welcome to the forum I am from Glen Allen Va. I also took up road riding recently to get back into shape however due to an injury I am off the bike for a few weeks. As for online sales I usually look at Nashbar, Performance, Pricepoint just to name a few. What are you wanting to upgrade?

    I don't have much in mind. I typically enjoy researching and browsing potential upgrades more than I tend to act on such impulses. I would like to upgrade to clip in pedals first. As of now, I don't know what might benefit or be most rewarding for my riding. I'm using it as a combination of commuting, exercise, and pleasure. I aim to ride at least an hour a day, weather permitting.

    Hey, I came across this site a few days ago: http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/
    They have an online customization process with select bikes that they call Project One. You can pick just about everything that goes on the bike and it'll show you exactly what it would look like. I've had a lot of fun with it, but I can't play around for long otherwise I start wanting to order it, lol. It can take some time to load the pages because they have so many options, though, so be patient.

    Hi Sam, welcome to bikeforums, I just joined myself. I live in Christiansburg and my wife and I ride the Huckleberry a lot. She just bought a road bike after realizing that a hybrid was not for her. We both bought bikes in February, first we have owned in ten years. I'm still happy with my mb but have been looking for a road bike as well. I've learned that you can research road bikes on the internet until your head explodes and be no closer to making a decision. It is my habit to over-research until confusion anyway. On that note, I would suggest the Shimano M520 SPD pedals. I looked for weeks at online reviews and finally decided on a set of these. I am very happy with them and tension adjustability is an added bonus. Good luck!

    Ryan
