New GMC road Bike, what do you think.
Seen this bike on Amazon.com, and have been toying with the ideal of getting one. From the reviews on Amazon it looks like it is well worth the money. But you really don't know till you get one.
Here are the specs.
The GMC Yukon XL 700C 14-Speed Road Bike is built around a lightweight aluminum 6061 road bike frame (20-, 22-, or 25-inch frame) and Shimano tourney 14-speed gearing. The bike features high-profile Vitesse aluminum rims that look as good as they perform, and a Vitesse racing saddle with an alloy seat post for a smooth ride. Lastly, Shimano STI shifters and an alloy crank set round out this sturdy road racing cycle.
