    I'll second that, in that I'm not a fan of his. But being that he is a fellow cyclist, I will wish him a speedy healthy recovery so he can get back on that bike!

    No, they ARE road bikes. Not all of us have the money or need for a $2000+ full carbon 15lb 11spd road bike. They are perfectly serviceable entry-level road bikes.

    Yea, drop bar road bike vs flat bar is night and day. I still prefer a flat bar handling wise (just more comfortable for super great handling) but anything over 10 miles for me and I NEED a drop bar...

    Go take a look in person. I'm 5'8 and a 54cm bike is good for me, in fact it is what I ride. But see how it feels. If you feel too upright: drop that stem (its an adjustable stem).

    No.

    Its not in my price range. Tiagra 10spd seems fine to me. Cheap. Works. Easy as pie to set up.

    Won't own disc brakes, either. On a road bike that is. My next MTB will have disc brakes!

    Yep, I can ride the drops now after losing 55lbs, 6" in waist and 6+" in chest. EVERYTHING is easier now! I cut right through the wind, too, in comparison to when I was heavier!
