I just got into biking seriously a couple of years ago, and I bought a Trek 4100. I like it plenty, but I'm just now considering getting into a serious road bike since I rarely leave the pavement, and looking for suggestions (see my other thread: Opinions on Monoc frames? ).
I generally used it for a bit of cardio, as I freakin' hate running, but now I'm getting a bit more into biking as I realize I really need an expensive hobby to waste all my money on.
As for me personally, I live in the DFW Metroplex, and am a college student majoring in criminal justice at UTA.
welocome obvious biker from Texas, hope you enjoy reading & Posting notes here. Alittle wing mirror helps when you first start on the road, it gives you confidence as you can see instead of hearing what comming up from behind.
