|I am brand new to the concept of road biking but very interested. I live in Colorado and I use my bike to go EVERYWHERE! The bike that I use now is a cheap Huffy "mountain bike" that's very slow, clumsy, and heavy with knobby tires. I am sick and tired of it. I hate buckin' a head wind with that dumb thing. I want something that's FAST (underlined), light, great for medium distances, under $700, and able to withstand a few rough roads/paths once in awhile. I'm not going to carry heavy loads (maybe a backpack) but I'm not going to race either. I'm just a commuter looking for a bike to get around town quickly and easily. Any suggestions?
