I'm looking for a road bike, been riding the 25 year old dirt bike and time to take the next step. I plan to do the MS 150 next year and some rides before. Over weight out of shape and Highg cholesterol, starting to change all 3 but at 48 its tough. What are the opinions of the Cadent 1 and 2? Would like to stay under $650, a salesman said these might be on track and a good staring place to look. Upright seating compared to most road bikes but better than a hybrid. Any help or suggestions would help. I know many folks have ask about getting started and I have read many post, learned enough to ask questions.
