Hi, I was hoping for some advice. I currently own a Felt F80 that I bought four years or so ago. I ride fairly frequently (3 - 6 times a week). I am 6 feet 225. I am thinking of upgrading but before I do so was curious about a couple of things. Any advice / thoughts will be much appreciated:
First, and this may seem like a dumb question, will I notice a big difference if I buy a "better" (read more expensive) bike? (My local store (International Cycle in Boston) suggested the Lemond chambery. The guy at the store thought I would notice a big difference (partial carbon frame better components etc)).
Second, do any of you guys have any other specific suggestions for a bike? I am willing to spend around $1500 or so.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
