ok, i've been looking for a decent race bike.
price range: 1,000 - 1,600 ish
here are the bikes which have caught my attention:
Felt RXC Elite
Scott scale 40
Marin Nail trail
Specialized stump jumper
klein attitude V
what are your thoughts, have you had any experiences with any of these bikes? do you have a nice bike to suggest?
Get the $1600 hardtail from bikesdirect.com Its about 23 pounds with decent tires and pedals. XTR derailleurs/shifters, juicy Carbon brakes etc etc. Take a look at it. I've won quite a few races on mine.
