Hi guys, I can tell you guys favor the Kilo TT for entry level bikes, but I haven't been able to find a Mercier retailer in Toronto (neither did this poster)
KHS Flite 100 uses the same frame and retails as a complete for 700 CAD (687 USD) at the store I'm looking at (Urbane Cycle for you Toronto posters)
the specs are here:
I really would like to avoid an online retailer, although I suppose I could get fitted for a bike and buy one of that fit online.
I've seen some amazing bikes in the post your bikes type of threads but I don't have any clue of the value of the component parts. What's a good brand of bike in the 700-1000 USD range?
Surly's start at 1075 up here, I don't like most Iro's, Masi, or Opus I've seen, and as far as Cannondale, Fuji etc I don't know what they're worth in order to spot the deals on craigslist or kijiji.
I don't mind spending a bit more to get a lot more
