and I can`t decide which one
So I`ve been searching for a wicked bike that I can use for my daily commute as well as something I can use for entry level road racing.
Here`s what I`m thinking about getting:
2007 Giant TCR
Eggbeaters and mountain bike shoes
however... I`ve also been looking at the Giant OCR3 (Cheaper but also way heavier and from what my LBS salesguy tells me, not worth spending lots of $$ on upgrades)
and now I`ve been reading a lot about the Surly Cross Check, and while I realize it isn`t really considered a pure bred race bike per say, it looks like one could set a fairly aggressive seating position on it and with the addition of some killer road tires and some lighter parts could be good for both.
However it`s steel so I imagine it`s pretty heavy.
Does anyone have a commuter/racer and make a suggestion as to what direction I should be looking?
Or does anyone use a TCR for both racing and commuting? or the other bikes I`ve mentioned?
Please help me...I can`t make up my mind.
