I have made a decision on a bike!

I have decided to get the FCR 2. I could have bought the 1 or 3, but I think I decided on the 2 only for the paint job. If I could have paid the price of an FCR 1 with all of the 1 components on a FCR grey colored frame I would have done it, but they wanted $70 more dollars over what the 1 would have cost. I think the FCR 2 components will be just fine. It has 700x28 wheels/tires and I think if I want to upgrade later I can. It should be a great little clyde bike. Maybe once I lose this gut I can get a real road/touring bike...

Congratulations. I'm looking for a new clyde bike myself. The good news is that there are more options than ever. The bad news is that there are more options than ever.
