My suggestion to you is to read up on frame geometry and then go ride
bikes with different geometries. See what you want. Don't pull the trigger
without making a decision based on some time testing out diff. bikes.
Decide if you care about frame material. Steel or aluminum. Also do you
want a good frame that you will put your own components on or a good all-around
starter bike, requiring minimal or no upgrades. Read up on the components.
Use the search function to see what people have to say about __ headset, stem, cranks, wheels,
Think about stuff like do you want a sloping top tube cause it does ___ magical thing for your
bike or do you want a more classic horizontal, or near horizontal tt. Endless decisions,
google and sheldon brown are your friend.
