What bike would you buy? I am in the market for a new bike (converting from MTB) and have probably done too much research on frame types etc. Would you but a high end alum. or Ti of CF? I am not a weight weenie but do not want a 30lb bike either, lol. I am 6'-4" and weigh 235. Would be doing shorter club type rides to start with with the goal of doing some centuries later on. I have the mind-set of dont waste your mone on a middle of the road bike when you can spend a tad bit more and get what you wanted in the first place.
Bikes I have considered/looked at are: Trek 5200, Trek 2300, Felt F35, Cannondale R1000, Litespeed Firenze. Did receive some literature on the very cool bikes from Seven, but thoase are just a little too pricey for my budget, just the frame is $2400.
Let me know what you guys would do if you were in my shoes.
