Hello all,

I haven't ridden a bike in about 15+ years and haven't ridden a road bike since I was 18. I've dropped from 350 down to 300 and I'm looking at getting into biking. I'm set up for a hip replacement this fall and then I can get after it. I'm starting to look around for a bike. Looking at a thousand or so---any recommendations.

$1000 is a good budget. What sort of riding are you looking to do? All on-road? On and off road? Riding trails? Gravel paths? Bike paths? Using it to commute?
