    Hi Guys,
    Newbie here so thought I'd introduce myself. I am very interested in cycling but unfortunately don't have enough money to buy Road bike and gear yet. See you guys around!

    Welcome Cyclelad and take your time! Don't rush through the process and don't buy the cheapest bike you see! Experiment around looking for some really good and nice bikes that fits your style and go with that!

    Welcome. Go ahead and ask in bike equipment discussion all the available options for starters. All the stuff combined are a bit pricey but is far less that you will ever pay for a car plus maintenance.

    See ya around.

    Let me suggest you don't spring for a really cheap bike. Go to a Trek or Specialized store and they have lower cost versions of their models that are GOOD bikes with less than optimum grade components. These bikes are slightly heavier than the top grade but a WHOLE lot lighter than the cheaper off-brand bikes. And the warranties are generally better.

    Hi and thanks for introducing yourself. Don't worry if you can't afford to purchase a bike yet, I'm sure you'll eventually get to the point where you'll be able to enjoy this wonderful hobby. Keep visiting these forums and interact and learn about cycling in the meantime.

    Hello! And welcome to the forum. I am new too. Well! I felt sad for you that due to the lack of money you are not able to buy a bike with gear. I will pray for you. My best wishes are with you. Enjoy the forum this is a better place to know more about the bikes.

    Hi everyone. I've already been around the forum a fair bit and been really impressed how friendly and helpful everyone is here. I'm just conditioning my first ever brew (it's drinkable if nothing better), Thank you for all your help.

    Hello. I find biking a relaxing means of spending my free time. In fact, I always do my best to find time for it. It helps with anxiety stress.
