Hello all -- new to this board. Hope I can get some suggestions on how to accomplish the following:
My son, who lives in another state, would like a road bike for fitness and weekend touring. I would like to buy him one as a gift.
He lives out of state -- how do I accomplish this and get him the proper fit, etc.? His dad is roughly the same height so we could probably get the basics, but I know sizing is so individual.
Also -- budget is under $1000.
I went to a bike shop and liked the entry level Trek -- but for some reason they can't ship it??? I don't get this at all!
Help and advice appreciated!
