Greetings to all. I'm a 49 yo (50 next week) getting back into cycling after a long hiatus. I have puttered around on my Trek 7000 mountain bike for a few years but I took the plunge this week and got a new road bike. I hadn't purchased a road bike since my Panasonic DX2000 back in college so I was amazed at the new products. Suffice it to say I may need some advice now and then.
I purchased a 2010 Gary Fisher Ion Pro. I rode quite a few bikes and settled on the Ion Pro. It also helped that it was marked down quite a bit. I got it for less than I would have spent on the Giant Defy 1, which I also liked.
