You should also look to the left hand side of a post to see who you're dealing with, it can tell you a great deal.
Did you read the entire thread. Really chum, you can see that I have done plenty of research. I think the Kilo bikes are too aggressive in their geometry. The Windsors look right. I am looking to get the Timeline because of the wider tires, but the Clockwork Plus looks good with its price point and upgrades. But I would have to be comfortable riding 28C tires.
The Motobecane Fantom Cross Uno looks alright also, can run bigger tires, not sure though. Not sure, because the top tube angles down, looks more aggressive than the Windsors.
For anyone who wants to know. I emailed bikes direct and they said, 700X28C tire is the biggest the recommend on any bike unless it says it can support wider tires.
They also said they would, have Kilo WT in stock in June, probably.
And they, may never get Timelines in again.
This is what I get from their email to me, but I will put it at the end of this message.
So if I can never get a Timeline, again, I am looking at the Clockwork Plus, the Fantom Cross Uno, and maybe the Kilo WT.
It is hard to buy a bike without riding it. If we could ride these bikes it would be easy to buy the one fits us best.
Finally, looking to the left will bias your responses. What matter is what productive content is brought to each thread. Not how many times a person has posted.
