I'm new to road cycling and was wondering what people's general sense of quality was as far as bike brands. This is assuming money is not a factor. I recently went to a bike shop and without knowing anything thought the bikes from Opera and Pinarello looked the best, until the guy told me how much they cost Just wondering where they and others stack up to the likes of Cannondale, Trek, Specialized, Merckxx, etc. List your top 5s! THANKS!!
