    Newbie

    Just saying hello. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the roadbike review community.

    Welcome.

    Some advice:

    Please don't ask if rim or disc brakes are best on a road bike.

    Or if you do, be sure to read my posts on the subject. I do the best job of capturing the pros and cons of both brake designs. In fact, so much so I believe I will receive an emmy. I am equally fair handed about benefits of mechanical versus electric shifting and why steel lovers should at least finish high school before having a voice on the internet about frame material. ;)

    Yeah, this is a real sore point with CX, but as he really knows about bike stuff and gives useful answers, we just put up with it.

    Plus it's a dead and dying forum, so any posts from anybody these days is acceptable.

    OK, but please keep your comments brief. Of course with the term 'velo'...dog being optional in your user name...a dead give away you would be a steel lover. ;)

    Shame, shame, CX! Post in the right forum! Now take your punishment.
