Typed in Road Bike instead of Lights by mistake did we Banjo? And what's wrong with the Scott?
I rode a proper racing bike from about 1986 to 2000 when it got knicked
I then got into MTBing and haven't had a bike with drob handlebars and a proper road bike position.
I remember when I 1st got one, getting used to the positioning on the bike was the hardest thing, having previously used a "sit up and beg" commuter - which I use around town now.
I want another proper road bike, but would be nervous about buying one off the interweb because of the big differences I remember in body postion. I may be being paranoid, but would I be better getting a LBS to let me try out a decentish bike 1st to see if I've still got the old magic in the legs on a real bike
I'd be worried about buying a bike which wasn't set up for me personally - aged early 40s and a reasonably fit MTBer but off the bike for 2 years (except commuting because of a knee problem).
