Just a short intro to get going on the forum.
Got my Cannondale Synapse 6 last week on wednesday and I have already put in 3 10mi rides around the area. I am new to road bikes but I am exited about the sport.
I have almost everything on my Synapse except the pedals.
I am starting with normal "flat" pedals (like a kid) but i am looking to make the jump soon. If anyone has any suggestions of a good set for a beginner (that are not too expensive) let me know.
Any suggestions as to how far I should push myself during these first few weeks?
Those are good pedals. Get the hang of disengaging in parking lot or grassy field. I totally freaked out when I had to stop for real at a light and fell over in front of a stopped car, not hurt just embarrassed.
Thanks ncdave45, surprisingly I took the big leap today and bought Shimano PD-R540 pedals and Shimano SH-R807W shoes. Everyone in my cycling circle said I should just make the jump and I got a great deal at a local store.
I guess I'll share some pics of the bruises once I get back on the bike
