So, I am thinking his only option with a budget that size is to buy online, and even then his options seem really very limited. I was unimpressed with the bikesdirect.com options. I think my vote has to go to the Nashbar CX1. What do you all say? Any better ideas? Does anyone have any experience with the Nasbar CX1? Thanks for your feedback!
