New Member from Michigan

I'm a new member from SE Michigan looking to get back into biking. I literally haven't ridden since 1995. A lot has changed since then. Bike choices, places to ride, components, etc. I'm learning a lot about all this new-to-me-stuff by reading the forums. I'm trying to decide on a bike, and thanks to the people here, my decision will be an informed one.

Thanks ... JES600

Welcome fellow Michigander! I'm up in the thumber but I have a forum member friend who's down in Grosse Pointe. If your looking for a bike he may be able to help out as he has a lot of bikes come through his hands and freshens them back up for folks.

Thanks for the offer. I'm in Ypsilanti, which is just outside Ann Arbor, so Grosse Pointe is a bit of a haul for me. And thanks for the welcome. Hope you can get out and enjoy this week's record high temps.

I've been in there a couple of times. They know the trails and roads I want to ride, so they've been able to recommend a couple of suitable bikes. They've been very helpful and the prices they've quoted me are great. I live about four miles away so it's very local. I'll probably buy there unless something REALLY special pops up somewhere else.
