your right it's going to be a little more than I anticipated...as for my very local LBS, they carry just specialized and the average cost of a bike there is around 1500-2000, which is way out of my range. I'm located in the north country of NY (Plattsburgh to be specific) and I've also checked Burlington, but nothing really I'm interested, EMS has like a bunch of Jamis and stuff. I also want to pick this bike up for upgrading as well. I was looking at upgrading the group set to maybe Campagnolo Veloce or make the whole groupset Shimano 105.
The size seems fine to me...I'm close to 6'0" with a 32-33" inseam, which puts at a 58 cm. I'm not thrilled at it being a triple, but I'm not a seasoned vet (been riding fixies for 2 years, but thats about it) and I've heard triples are good for beginners especially around hilly areas, which is where I will be during the summer and next year. Plus I can always upgrade to a compact or something.
