I NEED HELP!!!stone35
Mar 25, 2001 2:27 PM
I ride mountainbikes, mostly downhill and freeride. I'm looking to get into Road biking mostly as a means of exercise (I'm a college athlete) but hopefully it will turn into a hobby as well. I need a good bike with good components because I just like to have good stuff, eventhough I'm sure it will be more bike than I actually need. I would appreciate any help I can get. I know nothing, including what size bike i would need (I'm 6'2 175lbs.) I have about $1000 to spend, maybe slightly more, and am looking for something used so i get the most bang for my buck

You need to get your inseam measurement before you can figure out your frame size. Colorado Cyclist website gives more info on how to go about it:

For used bikes check out the classified on this website. For $1200 you can get very decent bikes at gvhbikes.com Many cycling stores have early spring sales around april-- check them out for good deals on last year's model.
