I am re-posting a thread that I started on the triathlon forum a few days ago, since I did not get any feedback there
I found this titanium bike that is currently on sale for $3500: http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/..._da11_xiii.htm
The only size that is left is the one I need.
What do you think about it? Would you say that it is a particularly good deal, or not really worth it?
Titanium would work very well for me, for several reasons. I am not a cycling expert or champion by any stretch of the imagination, but I am thinking about getting a really good bike so that I can "grow" with it. Before that, I rode a nice entry-level aluminium/carbon road bike for a few years, but I got hit by a car, and need a replacement. I would like a bike that is fast enough to start competing.
I would really appreciate to hear any thought, opinion, or suggestion you may have. Many thanks!
