I am talking to 4 bike stores:Originally Posted by wagathon
Two represent Trek. Both recommend Madone after much talk.
The third store recommends Specialized Roubaix. (cost more , but not unreasonable)
The fourth represents Litespeed and recommends Toscani. (also cost more)
None of these stores recommends Trek Pilot for my needs.
Question: Does anyone recommend purchasing a bike over Internet? Or is that a bad question?
I need size 58 cm, better gears than 39 ring and 32 cassette, better wheels than Bontrager Race.
I see that some purchase components and put them together. I wonder if that is a bad idea?
The other choice is to go shopping. So many choices.
