I've been looking at road bikes and I got it down to these, I think. I have one dealer that carries Trek, Cannondale and Specialized. Another store has a Marin with the relaxed geometry. I know the Cannondale is a touring bike, but wanted to throw it in for the opinions anyway.
Trek Pilot 2.1, $ 1500
Specialized Roubaix triple $ 1500
Cannondale T 800 $ 1300
Marin relaxed fit $ 1200
I was looking at the Jamis Aurora, but the bike is pretty similar to what I have, and the Cannondale may be as well. I really do like the steel, but the steel bikes are pretty expensive. So I know it will come down to fit, but just say they all felt pretty good. They are all pretty close in price which one would you get. I was thinking Waterford before, but didn't care for the long head on it. I would really like the Rivendell Rambouillet, but the cost is a little to much, unless I wait for a while. The only thing about the Rivendell is, I'd be buying the bike without trying it on and I like to see what I'm buying as well. So that's what I have running around in my head and I thought, if I find out what would be a good bike, I can start doing more research on it. Thanks for any replies, thoughts, or opinions.
