Trying to find my next ride

Hello everyone,
I stumbled across this forum while doing some research for my next road bike. I'm 48, ride with a group called True-Wheels ( and our bis ride is usuallly the MS-150 ride to the beach in Sept. We ride pretty hard and average about 175 miles a week or so in season. I do not race competiton but enjoy hammering with the gang !

Presently I am riding a Specialized M2 Comp. with 105 components and Mavic wheels that I bought used about five years ago. Its getting outdated and the aluminum frame is putting a beating on my old butt ! So I started looking around and saw the Firenze from Litespeed, the Scattante from Supergo and Precision Plus from Douglas. I have two kids in college so my target is the $2K range.

I'd appreciate any feedback and ideas that might help my decision.

Hi and welcome!

There are a few people that do the MS- 150, and you may have a little more luck with posting this question in the road cycling discussion section of the forums.

I don't have a personal recommendation, but good luck on finding that bike!
