Hello from Alexandria, LA

What's up, I recently made the switch to commute to work by bike and now I can't get off. I spend most of my time in the living car free section and commuting section, although I would like to do a regional ride. I read a beat up MTB from Walmart, which will only serve me for probably another month at the latest. I have been talking to a guy from my LBS and getting the feel for some road bikes, although they can be very expensive.

I hope I stick with this, but it seems I have found something I truly love to do every day.

Hi, welcome to BF, sounds like you got bitten by the bike bug. You might want to look at the Craig's List for your area as well as the LBS, you may find a reasonable used bike there. Make sure if the bike's fit for you and the usual checks for reliability and wear/tear. Best of luck on your search, the bike for you is out there.
