Hello from Portland! Looking for my second road bike.

Hi all,

I've been doing some serious hunting for my second road bike and this forum has been plenty helpful in my search. I'll be posting another thread shortly for some feedback and advice, I'm looking forward to becoming part of the forums!

Hola Portland, San Diego hears you! Welcome aboard. You have a road bike already? What is it?

I do! But unfortunately I am filled with buyer's remorse. It's a 2012 Fuji Roubaix 3.0 which I picked up recently for $699 from Performance Bikes, but upon getting it home I've already found myself wanting to upgrade the Tiagra parts/seat/wheel set. I've decided to spend the extra money on a bike with Shimano 105 parts instead, and I'm not a fan of the AKX r3.0 wheel set on my Fuji.

Long story short, my budget is in the $1,000 price range and I'd prefer a low profile, lightweight, and smooth road bike. I had my eyes set on the 2013 Fuji Roubaix 1.3 C but unfortunately I can't find it anywhere. I'm completely open to suggestions, I'll be using the bike mostly for cross training (marathon running) and I typically ride 2-3 times a week around 50 miles per ride. I apologize in advance if this is too much info in the introduction section!

What do you dislike about the Tiagra set?
