    Totally new to road bikes, orientation needed!

    Hey all!

    A little background about myself...

    26 years old, been riding motocross since 12 years old and my age has finally caught up with my physical condition. I do crossfit for strength, but need a bunch more cardio exercise. Wheels are my favorite, and less wheels are better, so I figure it is time to get into road cycling.

    A ton of motocross folks already cycle for crosstraining, so I think this will be excellent!

    Coming here to learn about bikes, learn about what is good, and what is bad, and to get advice from folks who are obsessed with bikes like I am with motocross.

    Anyhow, any advice you have, or places I can look for information would be fantastic! It has been years since I have embarked on a totally unknown journey like this, so I am really pumped to learn new stuff again!

    Thanks

    Cheers motox, welcome to addiction!

    Check out our Road Cycling forum, and with your background Cyclocross might be interesting, too.

    Try ebay, this could give you an idea of what you might like to own. Not knowing your bike budget it's hard to recommend anything, but I've found many people get into the sport and then find it's not for them and sell almost new bikes for pennies on the dollar, maybe this will help in your search.
