    Hello from the Sunshine state

    Ron asked me to come in and say a few words. I live in Orlando Florida married with two kids. (That may be why I ride a bike!) I have had a Giant comfort mountain bike. (THEY CALL IT COMFORT...) I have done a little trail camping and on a ride one day a guy blew by me on a road bike and I knew I had to have one. I bought a used Giant Perigee to try one out. I am new at the road bikes but it now sure is hard to walk past it in the garage to take the comfort moutain (THEY CALL IT THAT) out for a ride. I have already learned a lot from some of the messages I have read and I now have an eye out for a new road bike. Thanks for the info.

    Hey GiantBike, Thats the worst thing about starting out in cycling,finding out which type of bike is right for you.I rode a hybrid for 5 years and changed parts a little at a time until it was more road worthy.Most of the change was me going from a upright position,then over time I changed stems and went with narrower saddles,narrower tires.Bought a roadbike this year and it is the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden.I still ride the hybrid on trails and rainy days.I'm just glad I didn't listen to the salesman,cause he tried to sell me a mountainbike to begin with.Mountainbikes are the top sellers but I wonder how many are sold to people because its hard to know what kind of cycling suits us.Live and learn eh?...Hilly
    The mountains are callung and I must go

    Hey, another Floridian!!!

    I'm down in Sarasota!

    Welcome to the forums and glad to hear you're enjoying you new ride! I too am married, but with only one kid! My biggest challange seems to be finding time to ride on a regular basis! Once I'm riding, the rest is easy!

    See you around

    Thank you. You are in one of the better places in Florida. I have been down there many times and really like that area.
