Want to loose weight and have fun riding.
I am going to work up to a 14 mile 1 way ride to work and then work up to the return trip. Then possibly up to 50 but I don't think I would ever care to do more. No big hills.
I don't need fenders or anything as I will stash clothes at work and we have a shower. I'm not going to ride in cold or rain.
I'm down to these bikes.
I test road the tarmac today and it was sweet. They had it marked at 1900 which appears to be 200ish over priced.
2. I have read a ton of good about the CAAD9 and think the caad9-5 would be good, but noone local has one. If you guys think it is an option I can drive to OKC as I'm sure a shop there has one.
3. There are a ton of trek, giant, and orbea bikes locally but everyone says CAAD > Trek, Giant. I also can't find many reviews of Orbea bikes.
I'm already aware I will need to replace the wheels on any of these.
What say the horde?
