New Guy From Ohio
 
Hey Everyone,

Pretty new to biking in general. I have dabbled a little in working on bikes and really have enjoyed that. I desired to mountain bike for a while but just don't have the funds, nor the time as there is not many trails in my immediate vicinity. So now I am looking around and wondering about the best beginner road bike as that may be my next best option. I would love any opinions and guidance in this process!

Not sure where you are located, but in Columbus there are no fewer than five bike shops on Sawmill Road within a 3 mile stretch between I270 and Bethel Road. The folks at Performance, Trek and Bike Source are particularly helpful and are glad to let you take test runs! There are an REI and a Dick's as well.
