I'm looking to purchase a bike with about $1,000 budgeted to start. I figured 800-900 for the bike and a little bit extra for anything I might immediately need. All 3 seem to have the shimano 2300 components so I guess my question to you guys is which is better suiited for exercising and will allow room for growth (upgrade worth frame?)
- Bianchi Campione (steel)
- Bianchi Via Nirone 7 (alu)
- Specialized Allez (alu)
- im 5'10 (think im looking for a 54 or 55cm)
- no riding background (barely even did it as a kid!)
thanks for looking at this.
