It's the dead of winter up here in west central nh but I am looking forward to biking this spring. I returing to biking after 10 + years. I always rode a mountain bike but I am thinking of getting something more suitable for the road. I am looking for recommendations for a new bike for the road. I injured my lower back last year, so I don't want anything too bent over. Then again, I don't want a mtn bike style that is slow on the road. I'd appreciate any suggestions. I look forward to checking out the various forums.
