New bike recommendations - $1500-2500
I posted a month or so ago about a dilemma of flying my bike back to Canada for the summer from the Middle East. The concensus was that I should just get a new bike, to have one home and away. I didn't think this was an option, but I've been able to pick up a job on the side that will put a bunch of cash in the new bike fund. My plan is to leave my current bike, a 61cm Scott Speedster S30 with 105 and a custom rear wheel, here in Qatar while I'm home in Canada for the summer. I need to be doing some research on what I want while I'm here so I don't waste too much of my 10 weeks of summer looking for a bike. I really like the fit of my Scott, but am definitely open to any and all brands and suggestions. I'll be looking at bikes up to $2500 so I can upgrade a little and know I have it waiting for me when I go home next year. Online it can be a bit of a pain to find pricing, etc. so I am wondering what you would buy if you could get a new bike with up to $2500 (US or Canadian)? Let me know!
