Seeking advice on buying new bicycle

As I have stated in a thread on purchasing equipment, I am an older rider looking to buy a new bicycle. If you would like to be of help, please let me know. I would appreciate it. I have an old Allegro Special, and I am seeking to replace it with a high quality hybrid or road bike. Thank you.

Hey there, SmokedAllegro2, welcome to bikeforums. You'll find a lot of help around here (and some snark too) so don't hesitate to ask around. I'm into older bikes, so I spend most of my time at the Classic & Vintage section. If that's your thing, there is TONS of knowledge there, just waiting to be tapped.

Anyway, good luck with your search. I'm pretty new to cycling, so I won't be much help big-picture-wise. But I've learned a lot in a short time courtesy of these forums.
A race bike in any era is a highly personal choice that at its "best" balances the requirements of fit, weight, handling, durability and cost tempered by the willingness to toss it and oneself down the pavement at considerable speed. ~Bandera

Welcome to BF! Doing some info gathering and window shopping at good LBS’s would be a good idea for you. They should be able to fit something to your budget, physical size, needs and intended riding style.
