    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.

    Welcome to the forums! I'm from Rockland County originally, but that was a million years ago, back when I had a little yellow BMX bike.

    I like cross bikes, they're road bikes with attitude. :thumbsup:

    Cross is what I am thinking. My local shop has a closeout 2009 Redline Conquest Pro that I am thinking about grabbing!

    We are actually in the process of trying to relocate to Lexington KY.

    Aw, leaving NY? Not before I can come out there to visit my brother and side somewhere as well!

    I'm only like, 4 hours east of Rochester :p

    Welcome! I hope to find some good trails out there if I do end up travelling the state.
