Another "Which One?" Question

I ride 100% for recreation, no competition. The area I ride is lots of hills, but no mountains. I would love to get in condition to ride in the local MS150 next year.

O.K., the question. I am looking at two bikes. Both are Fuji Forzas. Bike "A" has Ritchey Comp Road Rims and Tiagra drive train. Bike "B" has Ritchey Zero System Pro Road Rims and 105 drive train.

Is bike "B" worth $350 USD more than bike "A"? Will I be able to tell a difference in riding?

Whoops, two questions. Sorry 'bout that. But, I would sincerely appreciate your opinions.

Simple answer, buy the one that fits you, the one you feel more comfy on.

I say check out the Fuji Finest! Hybrids are nice,I own one,BUT for long rides you can't beat a roadbike.The many hand positions,drops to fight headwinds and you can keep your weight forward on steep climbs to keep the front wheel firmly on the ground.

Totally OT from the original post - but Hillyman, the link in your latest post looks like a great trail. I would love to have a 45 mile trail around here !!!

You could almost do a century on the trail !!
