I am currently riding an 09 Raleigh Rush Hour. this bike is fun, but im itching to build another.
what i have acknowledged from reading this forum is that these frames are considered as entry level:
raleigh rush hour
What im looking for is something better than my rush hour. my price range is <$500. I dont mind buying used. i dont go to the track or do tricks. just group rides, commute to work, solo night rides to work out, casual ride with my gf to grab dinner.
im not really into aero frames. italian and NJS frames are way out of my price range. i have also considered the following, but i dont know if its considered 'entry level':
affinity lo pro - probably not desirable on the street
is there anything wrong with buying another 'entry level' frame and putting better components on? to me it seems redundant to have 2 bikes in the same class.
