new guy, with a question!

Hey guys, I have a question regarding a potential new bike purchase. I have been road riding for about a year on a 2001 trex xo1 cyclocross bike with road tires, mavic axiom wheels and all sora components. I have been looking to upgrade to something newer, nicer and lighter with a more relaxed geometry. Im not a racer but I like to ride fast and long distance. My current bike is a 58cm which is a bit to small for me (im 6'4). I had narrowed my search down to a specialized sectuer apex or the felt z85 with 105s. Both of which are in the 1200-1400 price range. Honestly a bit more than I wanted to spend. I came across this deal online for a schwinn le tour super, full carbon fiber frame with 105s and fsa cranks. Its only $999, list for $1999. I am super tempted to grab this bike as it has the relaxed geometry im looking for, as well as a carbon frame, a HUGE bonus vs the 2 more expensive bikes I had in mind. I donít care about ordering online as I cant ride the other bikes anyway, bike shops NEVER have my size in stock so I would be ordering blindly anyway.
My question is, does anyone have a new schwinn bike, specifically the le tour super? It seems like an amazing deal, but I donít want to spend this kind of money on a junker. Thanks for the help in advance.
