Time for a new bike. Advice on choice please.
I have fallen in lust with the Merckx SXM Frame. Thinking about breaking the bank and building it with Campagnalo Chorus components and American Classic Wheels.
I also like the Orbea Orca though I am told that the ride is very stiff.
Other choice and cheaper is the Look 555 with Ultegra components. I ride about three to four times a week and would consider myself a recreational rider ie no races. Had a Klein Quantum TT and found that a pretty unforgiving ride with the aluminum frame and want something more comfortable.
Any thoughts. Tried the road bike section and got nothing but BS advice eg "anything over $1000 must be good"!
