About to buy my first road bike, they do scare me a little bit with their thin wheels! But I love biking and can't wait to have a proper bike to make it more fun.
Have seen models from a few major bike companies like Giant, Specialized, Trek - some come without pedals and bike shop would sell me clip pedals. Some come with pedals with straps on....this seems a bit less scary to start and I guess I can change pedals at a later date. Also reduces the initial outlay not having to pay for pedals seperately.
Is my thinking flawed?!
