Thanks for the compliments on my blog. If you are really researching bikes, start with what do yo want it for? Are you going to race, ride off-road, ride across the country, or ride to work and in/around the city. Figuring out what you're likely to do with your bike will help you narrow down your choices. I have a 2o year-old mountain bike that I rode for years. Then I decided that I didn't want to have to plan my wardrobe around my bike, worry about getting dirty when I wanted to ride to work or out with friends, and that I wasn't riding 25 miles at a time anymore. That drove my selection process for my current Dutch bike. Start there, then pay multiple visits to your local bike shops and test ride bikes, ask questions, etc.
