Hi from Hamar, Norway

Hi everyone!

I am new to bicycling for other reasons than short distances. I have a cheap hybrid that I have had some trips on this year, and have decided to go for a racer as my starter bike. I am currently deciding between Caad8 and GTR Series 1, but havenŽt been able to land this yet - if youŽd like to help me decide, please respond here.

My motivation for choosing to train on a bike is the need for getting in better shape and the ability to go around and visit places I canŽt reach jogging, and I find it much more motivating than other types of training. I have been consumed by work the last few years, and decided to enjoy life more - and take care of my body.

I have read around the forums and found much help so far (Thank you for that!), and I hope to some day be a help to others.

Thank you for reading, and have a great day!

Hey Andre,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Brand is not as Important as perfect Fit to the bike.
