Low end recomendations. Raleigh Cadent/Misceo/Giant Roam
I'm currently looking at 3 bikes(well 5) but I'm not quite sure which way I should go. I have no need for suspention and disk brakes would be nice, but not anywhere near a requirement.
I'm 6 foot tall and wear a 30 inch inseam so I have a bit if a long torso and short legs. I've been on the Cadent and Misceo both can be made to work with fitting and head tube adjustments. I'm getting back into riding after a couple years off. I do manly 30 mile rides on pavement and gravel rail trails with commuting thrown in. If it's raining, I'm driving.
The bikes I'm looking at are the Raleigh Cadent 1 and 2, Raleigh Misceo 1 and 2 and the Giant Roam 3.
What are the differences between the Cadent and Misceo? Sadly I haven't been able to see them side by side(and I can't figure out anything from the website). Is the upgrade to the 2 models worth it?
The Giant is the cheapest of the group, but the suspention fork is pushing me away from it.
Why doesn't anyone build a long fairly low bike???
Thanks in advance!
