    Yep! Here's the riding -- quite literally out the door and up onto the trails -- where I grew up (Southwest Vancouver Island).

    Thinking that this "review" ('buyer's remorse' whinge, really) says anything at all, let alone anything meaningful about a 2015 Sirrus Pro is about as silly as thinking that the following "review"...

    Pretty close: well under 2000 euros, takes 28s easily (and should have clearance for 30s according to LBS). Only deficit is colour, though it's half-way to meeting your requirement:

    Yes, it's a flat-bar road bike (one current variant of "hybrid" -- completely useless term, in my view). Not a particularly short wheelbase (around 1005 mm for a Medium), and in any event wheelbase...

    Completely agree re. press fit; what the hell is wrong with threaded b/b, especially for non-pro cyclists? Also agree to some extent re. logos, though this example is reasonably restrained (!)....

    How would anyone yet know? AFAIK, these aren't available yet. My LBS will be getting them, probably early spring. Might be earlier in the States? I have seen (not ridden) the aluminum version; seems...

    Excellent. This demonstrates that you are a man of taste ... appreciation of Bon Scott-era AC/DC is a sure sign. Consequently, for riding tempo I would offer this (rock-steady) little number. ...

    tonycd,

    Just read through this thread. There are in fact quality bikes that would work well for what you want/fit your budget and that have decent suspension forks. Example: Roam 3 (2015) | Giant...

    Wouldn't ride that thing if it was given to me; it's a mess, and one has absolutely no idea as to the integrity of the frame/forks. You simply can't tell, even with a 'live' examination. Give it a...

    Jinkster,

    From what you've said so far, I'm going to (somewhat unhelpfully!) +1 several comments above:

    2. Get yourself to...

    Interesting question!

    Here at home base I'd just call myself a 'recreational-but-serious cyclist'. I ride alone ... the solitude is part of the joy of cycling for me. Although I do ride my bike...

    Absolutely right. I don't think you need have any concerns at all; those Shimano D-A carbon clinchers will be perfectly fine on the sidewalk.

    Good stuff! Puts me in mind of the fact that my being a cyclist, and indeed being on this forum, is an indirect result of a raffle/prize draw!

    You are asking your questions on the wrong board, I think. Perhaps look around and find a forum where folks are riding bikes set up like this:

    Roll is quite right. In contemporary English "affect" is both a verb (at least two verbs, in fact, both transitive) and a noun. The latter's discourse field is psychology; the noun itself is a loan...
