okay so i bought a rockhopper disc 2 months ago but i find myself riding long distance and more on the road. So i just sold the rockhopper this morning and now looking for a road bike. I rode a specialized roubaix yesterday and it felt great. Unfortunately i tested on one of the more expensive ones i think it was the elite triple. They sell for about 1900 bucks. That is a bit out of my budget now is there another bike within lets say 1000 bucks that will be up to par with the specialized one? I like the allez but does it feelt he same as the roubaix? i think i was on the full carbon one. Will an aluminum/carbon one feel the same on the road? and are there any bike shops in the temple city, pasadena, arcadaia area that offer discounts? Ive heard of shops making deals but i cant find any around my area. any help would be appreciated thanks!
