So, I had to sell my road bike to fund my wedding in June, but this summer I'll be graduating from College and want to treat myself (as long as I have a job, that is). I loved my Allez, it fit me like a glove and really want another bike that fits that well. However, I want something that's super simple and stripped down for riding around the park and paved paths.
So, being that I'm a Specialized fan, I'm looking at their Langsters, steel and aluminum in size 58cm. I want something comfortable, rugged, durable, and simple. Now the geo on the aluminum seems more in line with the Allez (head tube, top tube, etc). So, I feel like I would feel a bit more at home almost instantly on that one.
However, I really like the ride of steel, but, the steel langster has a more "classic track geo." Smaller head tube seems to be the major difference.
Both are the same price, so what should I be thinking here? Would you guys care to lend me some advice?
