Well... I finally pulled the plug. Got a new bike after looking and discussing. Even though I really didn't need it I really did want it...
Got a 2013 Specialized Roubaix Expert Sl4. Red black and white to match my felt and my new shoes. Other bikes I tried were the Defy Composite 1 and Scott Cr1 but the comfort of the Roubaix was unmatched. The Giant did feel snappy and quick but the roubaix felt like a very quick couch. Being my 3rd purchase in 3 months I believe my LBS was very nice to me and worked it out. They even threw in two carbon fiber bottle cages!!! and a fit as well.
Cannot wait to pick it up tonight and ride it tomorrow morning! Doing the fit on saturday morning when I'll post my first ride report on my first ever carbon fiber road bike.. I will also post pictures tonight
I guess you can tell I am a teeny bit excited! Hopefully between this and my chiropractor I'll be able to ride centuries back to back in no time .
