Road Biking

I have always owned mountain bikes and until my last bike, that was purchased over 10 years ago, there were usually from Target or some store like it.  Earlier this month I started riding quite a bit more and much more consistently than I had in the past and that got my thinking that it might be time for an upgrade to my bike.  Well, I really didn't know what I wanted, but I knew that a mountain bike was not the best for the kind of riding that I was doing (mostly paved roads and trails) so  I look quiet a bit online and thought about it for a while.  Then someone I know started talking about road bikes, something that I had not even considered until that point.  I stop by a number of stores and looked.  I eventually ended up taking a Trek 1.5T for a test ride and turned around and bought it.  I could not believe how much of a difference there is between the mountain bike and the new road bike.  It is smooth and all of the power goes into moving the bike.  I am still adjusting to this bike and I am guessing that will take a while, but I am starting to get adjusted.  I really am enjoying it.  My advice is if you are looking for a bike have a good idea how you are going to use it and purchase a bike that will fill your needs.
