Cincinnati (Amelia)

Bought a "mountain" bike off of Craigslist two years ago for work - Pacific Quasar. Decided this year to make it a hobby instead of walking and now I'm hooked. Deciding on my first road bike (kind, where to purchase, minimum needs, etc.)

Welcome to the forum, and welcome to Cincy cycling! If you're in the market for a new road bike, I recommend the Trek Bicycle Store in Blue Ash (granted, I work there, so I am a tad biased... ). We'd be glad to talk bikes with you, and answer any questions you may have, at the very least.

I used to live down that way. Plenty of places to have a good ride. Unfortunately I wasn't into cycling at the time I was living down there. But I agree with some of the other people here. Trek is a good starting point for a first road bike. Life-time warranty on the frame, a tad less expensive then other road bikes(depending on what you get), and you should goto the Blue Ash store. Also definitely check out the sections of the Little Miami Scenic trail. It's apart of the Ohio to Erie trail system, mostly paved. It cuts up to where I am at Yellow Springs, Springfield, Dayton area.

I know several of the guys at that particular store, great group. I also deal with Oakley Cycles, but I've only interacted with the owners there, not the employees. I think the Blue Ash store would be a better bet for you, bigger parking lot to ride around in if you don't want to take a bike out on the road, the store is a lot more spacious.

I hate PUSHING only one brand (Trek) so I have to say visit 2 or 3 bike shops near you and test ride all the bikes that appeal to you. That way you can pick from several excellent brands. Pick the one you like and take it home. Be sure to post pics of the bike you get.
