    Greetings from Texas

    Hello all,

    I am Tom and live in Houston. Have not cycled since I was a teen, which is many years ago. About to take the plunge and get my first road bike. I hope to be doing rides like the MS 150 in a year or so. Have run marathons in the past, so no stranger to training. Have been looking and learning, debating buying new and lower end, probably aluminum frame, or buying used 5-7 years old to get better components (or at least higher level at the time) components. I have already found lots of helpful info on this forum, so looking forward to getting more involved and actually cycling soon.

    Tom

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

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