    New to Road Bikes

    Hey,

    I grew up with mountain bike in, you guessed it, the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I now live where there are no mountain, or hill, or ... dirt.

    It has come to my attention that my fat tired Specialized Rock Hopper is ill-equipped to handle such flat, long stretches of pavement.

    I am looking for a road bike with the following specifications:
    • extremely light weight
    • minimal gears (maybe single speed)
    • crappy looking to not get stolen
    • fast


    I like the more aggressive positioning of road bikes than more upright commuter bikes.

    What advice for used bike meeting those specifications do ya'll recommend?

    Thanks.

    Cheers srccon, welcome to Bike Forums!

    It's best to ask that question in either Road Cycling forum (if you prefer a geared bike) or Single Speed & Fixed Gear forum.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
