SO yes I'm new and I mean NEW! I am in the process of getting a bike(1st bike I will have owned since... at least 15+ years ago). I am getting the 2010 Trek 1.1 because it is a decent price and the reviews on it seem to show it is good for a newb like me. I should be getting it in a week or so. Once I get the basics down and get back into shape I hope to find some people to ride with in my local area who don't mind showing me the ropes.
