With the Tour de Cure coming up in May, I knew I had to just bite the bullet and get a road bike. I've been looking for one for a while now and decided to try a new LBS and see what they had. It turns out I went to the right place. I told them what I was looking for and they were extremely helpful. I test rode a Felt Z85, Specialized Allex, Sectuer and Tarmac. The Specialized bikes felt a little more comfortable to me than the Felt and while the Tarmac was pure awesome, it was outside my price range. I decided on a 2010 Specialized Allez Elite. I got a $150 discount and a free basic bike fitting. Overall it was an amazing buying experience.
