    Noob from Sherwood, OR

    Hey all,

    Hello from Oregon!

    Starting to transition from Mt Bikes to Road Bikes. Doing my due diligence.
    Any advice for a noob to the road gig?

    I'm looking to pick up something for less than $400, used, that I will primarily use to ride to and from a bus stop for daily commuting. I will do light touring with my family on the weekends and evenings, nothing long. Occasionally I will join group rides for 20-40 mile stints and will also use it for the STP next year and following years as well....

    I've been scouring Craigslist in my area and haven't yet got out for a test ride, but will be soon.

    Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Current Ride: 1995 GT RTS-1 with Zokes Bombers up front.
