We can do that if you can tell us when it will be warm again.

Here's the other bicycle.

This bicycle has a retail price of $2,595 but is on sale for $999 with NO tax and free shipping.

I checked out the Fuji at my local Performance bike store and a 56cm fit well. The Fuji that I priced above was from a store that is about 45 away and they will adjust it and fit me to it. The Motobecane I'm on my own but I have reasonable mechanical skills to put it together and adjust it.

Thanks for your help.

Best...2010 Fuji Roubaix ACR 2.0 Road Bike
You can test ride it and it has a warranty from a Bike Shop and manufacture.

The Moto has a few nicer components but as 10 Wheels said, warranty on the Fuji will be from a bike shop. And they'll be happy to do repairs and tune-ups. BikeDirect can't offer those services. And you'll get "the look" when you take the Moto to any bike shop for service.
