Hello from Japan
Hello. I found the bike forums while looking up info on bikes and riding in Japan. At 194cm tall there isn't much selection when it comes to finding a model that fits, after going through some threads, and some tips from another site, I went with the Giant Escape R3, and lucked out with one of their new models.
I bought the bike mostly to get out and ride through the country side/rice fields/see how far I can go/get fit/ kind of thing.
I've yet to get a computer and a head light, and I'm possibly gonna get a few more accessories, but I gotta finish going through some threads first.
Edit: and yes, I'm a total newb.
