Need Help with purchase of a road bike
Could use some help.. I have been riding now for the past few years on a Specialized Mountain Bike that i put some road tires on.. It has been very comfortable to ride, however as the weight has come off, i think i might be more comfortable on a road bike to ride the longer distances.. I am 6' 1" at 250, down from 300.. I completed 3 Century rides last year on the converted mountain bike and each ride took between 8 to 8.5 hours.. I am thinking i can cut at least an hour to hour and a half off the rides which would be fantastic.. I really dont want to spend more than $1500.. I am very hard on things so i will need some strong components.. All recommendations are appreciated..
thanks for your help...
