Raleigh Carbon Capri 1.0 vs. Cervelo S2 for Ironman Coeur d'Alene
Hello Bike Forum!
So I have a quick question...I am a newbie road cyclist (I used to use mountain bikes) and I am wondering what bike will be the most affordable and be the most dependable ride over the next 3+ years. I have already bought a Raleigh Carbon Capri at a great price and have put carbon aero bars on the front and have had it professionally fitted. I purchased it over Christmas so I have yet to ride it outside, since I live in Alaska, but from what I can tell on the trainer it feels good. However, I'm wondering how well it will hold up over time and will it be good enough quality to keep me comfortable through my first Ironman in June? The reason I chose the Raleigh was mostly due to budget constraints, but now I'm wondering if I should spend the extra money for a Cervelo S2, or just keep my current bike...
Any suggestions would be great!
Should be nothing wrong with the bike as long as it receives the care necessary for proper functioning.
Enjoy the Ironman.
