I just found these forums while trying to find the solution to an issue I have been having with my Shimano RSX STI brifters. I haven't tried the solution yet, but there was so much information on these forums that I felt like I had to sign up!
Anyway - I'm a recent college graduate who enjoys biking quite a bit but is still pretty much a newbie at things. I just bought a used 1996 Specialized Allez, and I love it. I'm a little bigger rider (~240 pounds), but so far the bike is treating me really well. I'm looking forward to many many miles on the new bike, and looking forward frequenting these forums.
