I'm buying a new bike! Last time was in 1999, good old bike still functional but is a brick with a baby seat on it.
After shopping 2-3 weeks, I finally decided I wanted a Escape model from Giant. It pretty much have everything I need/want without too much modification.
However, I need your help in deciding which one to pick....
The weight is noticeable but is not a big deal, is really a slight difference..... The feeling between riding a composite and aluminium bike is that the composite felt ''smoother''. I was wondering if the 430$ was worth to get the composite and a few upgraded parts. I really don't know much about the composite bike's.
I will use this bike to get around town and go to work, so a regular use. 70% bike path 30% city road and side walk. I can also go on small gravel path but nothing considerable, notice that I live in Montreal and the roads are ****....
