I posted this in ROAD, but I kno there's more smartness here, and less attatude, so I'm looking for help in the best place too.
I'm looking to get a carbon frame and I'm thinking that BikesDirect group buy going on in ROAD seems cool.
I'm looking for a more comfortable ride than my Motobecane Le Champion SL. It's light, but a bit rough.
So, Kestrel Evoke or RT700?
Can anyone offer a descriptive evaluation comparing these two frames?
Think 80-100 mile rides on "OK" roads, I'm a non racer but ride lots. I'll have almost 7000 miles this year.
I'm also not in my 20s... or 30s... or 40s any more.
If i had a ton of cash I'd be looking at a Specialized Roubaix, but I don't.
Any of you have either of these?
