    first bike

    Hi All,

    I already asked a question in the Road Bike section regarding whether I should buy a cyclocross bike as my first one (I am in mid 30's and haven't ridden since my teen years). So, now I am pretty much set on getting a cyclocross bike, but the question is which one I should get. I've kinda narrowed my selection down to the following 5 bikes: Cannondale CAADX 6, Cannondale CAADX 5, Bianchi Volpe, Bianchi Zurigo and Colnago World Cup 2.0. Would the CAADX 5, Zurigo and Colnago be an overkill for a complete beginner like myself? I don't plan on ever racing, just weekend rides on the streets of Brooklyn, NY to keep myself in shape.

    Thanks

    The all for sale where you Live? go talk to the folks at your LBS,
    you cannot test ride a data stream..

    Over buying is sort of a theft magnet.

    I finally rode it for 11 miles today and loved it The saddle might be a bit too firm though, but then I'd never ridden this kinda bike before.
