Figured I'd introduce myself as I'll probably have a lot of questions for you. I've been into the C&V forum for a couple years (and still love on of my vintage rides) but I recently sold two of my bikes to buy the new 2011 Raleigh Rx1.0. After a bit of digging around, it seems that this is a pretty good starter bike that I can grow with. There are some differing opinions on the SRAM vs. 105 but either way, I think I'll love the bike (I love the Raleigh brand).
Should get it in late May and just wanted to know if you guys have any beginners tips for riding. I'm thinking I'll get another wheelset for the road as it will also be my commuter bike for the week.
My first real question is pedals. What do you guys use? I'm using Eggbeaters on my vintage ride but am thinking they won't really cut it for racing. Thoughts?
