I posted this in the road bike section, but since I'm over 50, I hoped maybe some of you other old folks might have an opinion for newby.
I'm getting back into road bikes after riding mountain bikes for 20 years.
I just left my LBS, ready to buy a new Specialized Roubaix Comp Triple, but I noticed the rear cog set is 9 speed. After the salesperson made his speech regarding the intelligence of buying the 10 speed, trickle down technology and other rationalizations for favoring the 10 speed, I'm now wondering if buying the 9 speed would be a mistake ...
Can you offer an opinion? I'd sure be greatful. I love the bike, but don't want to find out after I own it that I bought outdated technology...
Thanks in advance,
