Yesterday I went to my LBS to get the bits to rebuild the Tandem and I was shocked. They had some road bikes in their that I liked the look off. I actually started looking at them and even that surprised me. They are Giant dealers and besides the high end bikes that are way out of my Price range- They had two that seemed to be just about suitable for a Newbie. One was an OCR2 and the Other a TCR3 can't tell you the difference between them but both had triple chainsets that are necessary for a "New" road rider in our area, and I believe they were fitted out with Sora drive chain. Can't tell any of you about the rest of the bike but the TCR looks better to me- Colour of the OCR was a bit rough. (Typical newbie)
So let me throw it open to you lot- I will be looking at Giant Bikes as that is whet my LBS sells (They also sell Dawes but I don't I am mature enough for one of these Bikes-OLD Plodders Bikes in my opinion) So in the cheap end range- what should I be looking at for a road bike? I do realise that money gets a better bike- but This may just be a mental glitch on my part and I might come back to me senses fairly quickly.
Edit--These must be 05 models- and going by the colour of the TCR- It must have been a TCR Team as it is black.
