    Question Need help in fitting a road bike

    Hey all new to the forums here so don't shoot if this is the wrong place for this topic!
    Permission to move!

    But anyways I plan on entering a marathon, 150miles and am looking for a road bike
    however, I'm not familiar with this territory and need your opinions.

    I'm used to riding a Canondale carbon trailbike averaging maybe 50-60 miles a week
    I'm 5'10" 160lbs
    Don't really want to spend over 800$ so try and be nice

    Any other information needed? Like I said not familiar with road bikes and don't know what factors go in to buying a well fitting bike for long rides to reduce stress on limbs, provide best ride etc.
