Bikes have come a long way from my first full sized bike that I rode to Tulsk cross every day to get the school bus to Strokestown. That was a single speed steel frame affir, probably a Raleigh.
The most modern bikes have an all carbon frame, electronic shifting and even disc brakes and can cost over $5,000. Insane! You could buy a very nice used car for that! I settled for an entry level bike with an aluminum frame and a carbon fork. So far it has proved to be an excellent choice.
