Help Mercer Kilo vs Felt Curbside vs Motobecane Messenger Track
I am fairly new to road biking and getting my first road bike, plan is to go under $500 and its going to be used around town for commuting around 15 mile round trip 4 days a week. Looks like single gear (or flip flop hub) is a good way to go and i need brakes and fender mounts.
I am torn between the Killo TT at bikesdirect for $399 or the Motorbecane Messenger and the third is a Felt Curbside. My local shop has the last felt curbside for $399! I know the seat and bar are ugly and it would get a new seat and drop bars anyway its all white so with black i think would look pretty sharp. The felt is very light 18.5lbs and is AL with carbon fork. Torn here guys, i know the kilo and the motorbecane are a good cheap bet but the curbside seems like a heck of a deal...
