    Just another new guy

    New to the forum but not new to biking. Been riding a old Nasbar road bike for the last 15 years. I started spending more time in the saddle last year after I retired to North Carolina (I'm in the over 50 group) and found I had forgotten how much I loved riding on the open roads. I started looking at Bikeforums when I decided to get a new bike. I'm still looking but enjoying the process. I find a wealth of information on this forum and enjoy the members veiws on everything relating to cycling. I still have a lot to learn. Thanks

    Bikes of interest

    Sorry I missed you reply. I live on the coast in N. Carolina in a small town and the bike choices are limited to a couple dealers in Wilmington. I'm looking at the Specialized Allez and Roubaix, the Gaint Defy and Fuji's Roubaix and Newist. I had a good chance to buy a good used Tarmac but thought it might be too stiff for long rides (I don't race). I'm not sure if you can tame a racing bike for endurace riding. I ride about 100 miles a week sometimes more if I can catch a local event. Are you farmilar with any of the bikes I mentioned above? Thanks

    No. I did put 700 X 28's on my race bike and have done tours and many 100 mile rides on it.

    Thanks

    That is something I didn't think to do. Maybe I'll expand my search a little. Thanks
