Found the forum while searching for info on purchasing a new bike! I've currently got an older KHS Mtn bike - actually a pretty nice bike with Shimano Deore and good kit all around. ROC is a pretty bike friendly community with a lot of trails including about 9 miles of paved trail a short hop from my house so I converted the bike to slicks and a different bar set-up....it's good up to about 12 miles or so but much past that and it gets painful. So - I am shopping for a cross bike...something that I can use in the winter as well as on 25 mile group rides and weekend 50 milers. Anyway - looking forward to joining the community.
