Just wanted to update everyone!
After much research and riding of Trek's, Fuji's, Cannondale's and Giant's.......I bought a Giant Rove 0! Took several weeks to get it.... LBS has done a great job of fitting me!
And I LOVE it! The black/hot pink is very striking! Much better looking than I anticipated! And the Rapid Fire shifters and other upgrades make this bike a dream to ride. Seems very quick and responsive!
I've bought some Shimano PD-A530 dual sided pedals, but don't have them on yet. I've also ordered a pair of Ergon GP3 grips. I've bought Izumi biking shoes and got a helmet!
However, I'm having trouble finding a computer that gives basic trip info, total miles and auto pause features. Any suggestions? I really like the Garmin 500 - but I don't need GPS and don't want to spend over $200! LOL!
