I would like to get opinions on a few items.
This is the start of my third cycling season, so I am thinking of a bike upgrade next month. I am currently riding a 03-Specialized Sequoia Sport. I have over 5000 road miles and who knows how many trainer miles. For a first rookie-bike it has been rock solid, and I would recommend it to anybody starting out.
The first question that I have is this. Does upgrading to a bike that is in the 2K range really make that much of a difference riding? I am curious about hearing experiences after people moved up. Next, and I know this question does gets beat to death --- what bike to people like in the $2,000-$2,500 range? I am currently leaning towards the 2005 Trek 2300 10 speed triple http://www2.trekbikes.com/Bikes/Road...2300/index.php , but I would REALLY like to keep my budget on the lower end of that scale if possible.
I cannot wait until spring!
Thanks in advance,
