Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The Fuji team pro is a sweet ride. I think I saw one for about 5K? Steep for a first bike.

Yes all carbon/dura ace.

The Team Issue is the full Dura-Ace ride.
The Team RC is the mostly Dura-Ace ride.
The Team Pro is Ultegra with Dura-Ace rear. I bought mine for $1575.
