road bike


ok, so I pretty much ride my bike everywhere. Biking (or "cycling" I guess) is a big part of my life. My bike is my best friend. It's name is "Iguana" (it's dark green.) But I feel kind of bad because, although I love my bike, lately I've developed this creepy obsession with road bikes. I don't know where it all started, but lately it seems like everywhere I go, I see people riding them and I can't help but notice how sleek and cool they look...not to mention that the people riding them are always speeding past me and it seems like they're not even pedaling. I really want one, but I've never ridden one before. I'm curious if any of you have had any experiences, and have any thoughts on the matter. Is it different than a regular mountain bike?

Road bikes go real fast. You can't beat the cruiser in my opinion though.

is what you have a mountain bike? you just need a new set of skinnier, smooth tires. it makes a huge difference. the knobs are only useful if you're riding uphill on dirt, but other than that they are just trendy and slow you down. (they might help a little in the rain, but i'm guessing that's not a huge problem there.) same with shocks. totally unnecessary for anyone not riding on very bumpy trails and they slow you down. i bought a nice road bike and I love it. it is way faster and easier to pedal. if I don't bring it home, i will probably buy another when I get home.
