I've been researching a good SS/FG bike for around $650 max and to say the least, it's been frustrating. I've looked at so many different bikes, but when I go and find reviews for them, it's not pretty. State Bicycles for instance.. they look nice, but I can't find anyone on a forum that has a nice thing to say about them.
The Mercier kilo tt pro seems like a pretty decent bike. At a $449 price point, it seems like a really good deal. Reynolds CroMo frame, decent wheelset and crankset. I can't seem to find much better for the price.
I found a Bianchi Pista on CL for $550 in really nice shape, but I'm wondering if the bike is really worth it or is it just sort of 'hipster' hype?
Others that seem decent and close to the price range are:
Fuji Feather or Fuji Track Classic
Motobecane FantomCross Uno
And then of course there's sooo many online 'My bike matches my Cynical T-Shirt' dealers out there it's a confusing mess.
Am I on the right track with my selections? (excuse the poor pun)
Are there anymore that I should consider?
Help is appreciated!
