Picking Between Four...
I've narrowed my decision down to four bikes:
Motobecane Fantom Cross UNO
Windsor The Hour
I'd marginally prefer the latter two, as they're a bit cheaper. If the difference in quality between any of the four is significant though, that's all that really matters to me.
My ideal setup would include bullhorns, fenders, and 28 or 32mms, so any bikes that count toward that get extra points. Running a freewheel with brakes. These are all based on theory, though, as I've never owned a road bike.
About me: replacing BMX for commuting about 3-5 miles a day. My town is TOTALLY FLAT, and our roads can be pretty bad, with large cracks and bumps in places. I'd like to start exercising on the few quality bike paths we have. Just shy of 6' with a 32'' inseam, I guess I'd get a 56 or 57 (or a 53 Kilo)?
