New to the site from TampaBay FL

Hey guys/gals my name is John, I have been riding bikes all my life.
I road the "Beast of the East" century in NJ in 1992 and after that got into mainly MTB and a little BMX. Earlier this year I picked up a Binanchi Pista fixed gear and have been putting quite a few miles on it. Now I have started looking for a nice carbon road bike and would like to race the 2010 series here in FL. I'm trying to spend under $2k and would like something like a Trek Madone, Cannondale SIX, or Specialized Tarmac. Any info or insight on these bikes or a comparable bike would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

JL

Welcome to Bike Forums, John. Try doing a search in the Road Cycling forum for the type of bikes you're interested in buying.

thanks for the welcome, I have been searching away. I hope to have a road bike before 11/15 as I plan to ride the Horrible Hundred in Clermont, FL this year.
