    greetings from Americas 5th most violent city

    Hi, I'm James.

    I live in Cordova, a suburb of Memphis Tn. I've been riding an old steel Giant "boulder" for about 10 yrs. and just picked up my first road bike 5 weeks ago. so far I've logged 755 miles on it including 2 metric centuries and just completed my first full century this past sunday 6/12 and am looking forward to many years on 2 wheels!

    Welcome to BikeForums!

    Wow, you've logged a lot of miles in a short amount of time. How do you like the new road bike compared to your old Giant?

    I have fallen in love with road biking and rekindled my love for biking in general however the bike definitely leaves something to be desired. After shopping craigslist for a few weeks I broke down and ordered a dawes lightning dlx. it serves its purpose but I've quickly learned its limitations. in general I'm happy but will be replacing it soon with something a bit more up to date.
