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

Newcomer to road bikes here

Hey everyone, I've become interested in road bikes lately, but I pretty much have no clue when it comes to bicycles. I asked the Commuter's section first and they recommended me to look through the local CL for "Centurion, Univega, Nishiki, Miyata, Fuji, Shogun, Lotus, Bridgestone" as my budget is only about 250$. But before I make a purchase is there anything else I should know? Thanks!
