My trusty but stiff Cannondale R600 has been a good starter bike for road riding but it will pound me no longer. My next bike will be one of the following: Litespeed Tuscany ($$!!)/Firenze, Cervelo Soloist Centaur or Trek. The LBD has let me demo the Cervelo and will let me try the Litespeed as well but no real experience on Trek.
My preference is to spend around $2K to get a comfortable but performance oriented bike. The Tuscany looks like a fantastic bike but the price is a major issue.
Hope you all can give me some guidance
