    My Parents think Riding is Dangerous!

    As you get older (late teens) your parents will start getting more confidence in you riding around the streets. 13 nearly 14 is very young so it will take a lot of persuading for them to change their opinions at the moment.

    Welcome to the forum! I had a look at some of your videos, thanks for uploading. The 1984 tdf stage 11 video was great, haven't seen that before.

    Newbie here, too light?

    Mesomorphs are a type of body structure thats naturally athletic, have broad shoulders and supposed to be the 'perfect' build. Anyway I don't think your too light. Being a light cyclist has huge advantages, just look at the pro cyclists.

    Bullhorn Handlebars

    For me I felt a quite a loss of bike control while riding with Bullhorn bars, but I can see the benefits on short races. Best to go for the aerobar attatchment on your standard drop bar so you can alternate between them.

    Which is best in wheels- weight or aerodynamics?

    Depends on what sort of riding you do, aero wheels are good for flats, light weight for the hills.

    Broke my collar bone...

    The surgery will heal it quicker but will obviously leave marks and cuts that you won't ever get rid of. Depends on the pain and situation your in I guess.

    road bike vs. tri/time trial

    Don't buy a time trial bike just because they go faster if your after fittness training. As most other people seem to say, stick with a road bike.

    First Bike

    If you can spend more I would look for a better bike, but as far as value goes, at $299, it seems quite good for value for money.

    some advice for a beginner

    If your looking for an entry level road bike you could check out some bike stores to find a model and try and find that model cheaper online somewhere such as eBay. Don't spend too much on your first bike as you don't know how much your going to cycle on it yet and its easy to sell a cheaper...
