Need a bit of Help looking for a bike.

Sup Guys and Girls! I'm new to this and would really like to start Cycling.

Im looking for a road bike under $600. New or used, doesn't matter to me. I would go to a Bike store, but the nearest one to me is within 60 miles or so. My brother recently got a Giant Carbon Fiber Frame road bike from a buddy of his and told me to start riding with him. All Im in need is a bike. I would like something that is fast. I have no knowledge on bikes whatsoever, so it's why I'm turning to you. I'm 5'9 19 years old and weighting in at 185. If any of that matters.

Thanks! And can't wait to start acknowledging your replies!

welcome to the forum...you are the motor, you determine how fast the bike is.

Welcome to Bike Forums, FG.

I suggest asking your question in our Road Cycling forum.
