How to pick a bike
I am just starting out with road cycling, and I want to get a bike, but I am so confused about what to buy.
How do I select well, and can I get some advice on what are good bikes for the beginer. I do wish to eventually enter road races, and potentially triathalons. Not looking for touring though.
I noticed the Cannodale R600. I am a fan of Cannondale since I got my moutain bike, but I really am completely novice...I didn't choose the mountain bike, I won it so I have never been through the selection process for a good bike before.
Budget, of course, is somewhat of an issue. I don't think that at my stage and experience level it would be smart for me to spend more than $1,200 to $1,500.
