Intro time

Hey everyone, been lurking on here for a few weeks and thought it would be a good time to join.
I'm a university student and am looking to get my first roadbike in the coming weeks. I rode a fixed gear for about 2 years when I lived in California but I am looking for more.
My current bike choices are: Specialized Allez '06, Cannondale R500 '05, and a Norco CRD2.

Seems like a really good community here!

peace

Hello Thisisit, another lurker! Why those three bikes? I won't do any shepherding then, I'll just leave it at

Those are the three that my LBS have in my size and price range, so they are my main options since I don't have a means to go try bikes in a bigger shop in a different city.

Oh, I see. Well, they all have a slightly different setup, but I'd personally go with the Norco, being as you're in Canada and all... .

(Well, assuming everything else being equal, that is)
