Hello all

Hey all,
Just an introduction from a complete newbie. I found this wonderful forum through google. I am still shopping for a bike but plan on getting one in next couple of days.
I got into biking after going to the spinning classes at my gym. I am from Jacksonville Florida.

Welcome to the bike forums. If I can offer you one piece of advice, don't buy the first bike someone offers you. Try many bikes, preferrably from different bike shops to examine not only the fit of various manufacturers but also to discover what kind of "fit" you have with the various bike shops. And, please don't be bashful to ask thousands of questions. I have been asked the same questions many times but still get excited when someone that is new asks those same questions all over again. It simply means that cycling has hooked another one. You have a few good trails to ride in the Jacksonville area and other parts of north Florida. We get down there from time to time to do a little riding. Best wishes in pursuing your cycling passion.

Thanks for the welcome. I have been doing tons of research online, now to get out there a try them. I am looking at either a Trek or a Giant. I will let you know what I get.
The weather has started to cool off here so I am looking forward to getting out and riding in the fresh air compared with sitting in spinning class.

Thanks again,
Sendy

Both Trek and Giant make some fine bikes. And, they make a bike that fits just about everyone's needs and pocketbook. If you ride both, you may find that the geometry of one fits you a little better than the geometry of the other. If you have any specific questions, I am sure that someone with some answers will show up to offer his or her opinion. Jeff
