Advice For First Bike (Help needed to decide)
I will buy my first bike to use in city. I will use bike for mostly at paved roads, around 50 miles a day. (probably 2-3 times a week).
What I'm looking is a reliable, fast entry level bicycle. After going though alternatives, I can't decide between two bicycles, and would like to get your ideas about those.
For cannondale, it is quite famous, but for raleigh cadent ft3, I couldn't find many reviews.
Cannondale bad boy has a cooler look, and I like the body better, but its shifters are worst, and afraid to change them after 2-3 months, or even worse if they break while I was 30 miles away...
Raleigh looks good too, but best part of it is Tiagra component, at forums it is generally told that tiagras are more reliable than altus, and have much better precision. But still not sure that tiagra component would make such a big difference at long run.
So if you would have just those two options, which one of them would you pick? Shifter or Body?
