Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The better question may be where did you learn how to spell and/or type?

- I'm sure you'd be plenty happy w/ a nashbar frame

I had about the same budget when I found my frame on ebay! Narrow the search down to your size and see whats out there! ex. ( Bianchi Boron XL for $412, Obrea Lobular $350) Just an idea!

Note: Ignore the flamers!!! It's the only way they will learn!!!

Cheers!
