Nice forums you got here ... I found them while I was looking for information on a new bike. I had been commuting to and from work on an old Diamondback Wildwood until it got stolen a couple of weeks ago . Not too big a loss, as it was used when I got it. More importantly, once it was gone I decided to go ahead and get a road bike so that I could have fun doing some riding in addition to my daily commute. So anyway, I'll probably have a ton of questions in the next few months ... thanks in advance for the tips!
