    Another hello from the Twin Cities

    I enjoy communting to work 5 miles each way. The winters here are bit too cold and dark for me, so I'm just a three season commuter. Winters in Minnesota are for cross country skiing!

    Currently ride a Giant comfort bike, but after helping my son buy a road bike, I have gotten bitten with the bug. I am looking at a cyclocross to take me comfortably over the potholes and occasional week-end ride on gravel. Will probably go with a Bianchi Volpe or Surly Cross Check. Any thoughts on those bikes would be helpful. Since I am closer to 60 than 20, I will not be doing any racing.

    Looking forward to learning from all on this forum!

    Welcome to the forums and I suppose also to your new attitude about a road bike. Since you are closeer to 60 you could post in the 50+ part of the forums and get a bunch of ideas on bikes. You have the final decision on which one since it is your comfort you are looking for.
    again welcome

    I have taken the plunge

    Thanks Floyd. I have actually already decided on the Bianchi Volpe. I'm looking forward to some nice riding this weekend.
