What road bike do you have?

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

I still roll with my old Nishiki Olympic 10-speed. If anyone has a better ride than that I dare them to speak up.

I have two friends with Ibex bikes. They are the best deal on bikes IMO.

Ordering and recieving from them is totally hassle-free. Quality? I am just getting back into cycling after a 30 year hiatus (quit smoking 9 weeks ago!) so I am not a good judge of quality but I was an engineer in a past life and this bike is built really well. Good looking welds, nice geometry (semi-compact frames) excellent components for the price. I only have 150 miles on mine so far (3 weeks old and Michigan in the winter) so I can't speak much more than this except that my sit-bones are aching while I get used to cycling again!
Advertised weight (sans pedals) is 18.2 and mine was 18.5 at my LBS. The guys at my LBS (Continental Bike shop in Hazel Park... Great store folks) thought well of it even though it is a brand they do not sell obviously.
My Ibex Apogee Sport mtb bike is just as well built too. FYI.

Good luck with your choices! I bought on-line for the value but do as much business as I can otherwise with my LBS. We need them and they need us!

Enjoy!
David.

Funny I see alot of C'dale hatin' on these boards (lol!) I have always liked Cannondales and would probably own one if the only C'dale dealer around here wasn't staffed by a bunch of snotty elitist pricks who have no place in their business to help a newbie like myself. I walked in to their shop with $1700 cash and just couldn't bring myself to buy a bike from those guys...as much as I wanted an R700. So I went to another shop and bought a LeMond which I love.

Cheers,

Brian

They definitely make solid frames, I had a R600 till I sold it for a better frame and now have a cannondale cross. They can definitely take a beating.

Just bought this GT Edge Ti frame with the Easton 90 SL fork and king headset off this bike after it didn't move on ebay. Have had a GT Xizang mountain bike for years and always wanted one of these to round out the stable. Now the buildup begins. My old Panasonic PICS ride next to it

I'm fairly certain that frame was forged by God himself.
