'04 Tirreno Razza 4.0 Road Bike

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

'04 Tirreno Razza 4.0 Road Bike

anybody hear anything on this bike, I was looking to getting into road biking. So this would obviosly be my first bike. I have looked at the fuji ace and cannondale r400. To bad in massachusetts everything is way over priced. I am 5'7" and i "think" i would be a 54.

PS does the performance 20% off work on complete bikes?

Yes i had it and personaly i hate that frame with a pation, the parts are awsome *except the pedals* but the bottom brackett is not stiff at all, it also feels a little slow on the turning, i work at Performance, got one to test out for the shop and personaly i would recommend something else. Especialy for the price i would go for the fugi rout, they make awsome bike and are cheap at Performance, some of them should be on sale at your local one, i know we have a few at my shop.
The 20% off can work on some items, i am not shure what the deal is on the Terreno since we just had a huge sale on it 3 monthes ago.

You think a 54 would fit? That is EXACTLY why you should go to a good shop and get a bike that fits. I would be more than happy to help you find a shop in MA that is up to the challenge. The prices have nothing to do with where you live, even with our 5% sales tax. To some extent, you do get what you pay for. The extra that a shop charges for what you think is a similar bike goes to the service that you won't get from a mail order outfit or an eBay seller. The mom & pop shop I bought my Bianchi from spent a lot of time with me to make sure that it fit perfectly. Did I pay more than if I had bought it from a larger store, yes. But the shop is 3 miles from my house. If I need something in a pinch, they will leave it on my front steps and I can pay them in a few days. They may not have everything I need, and they know that, but they try much harder to make me a happy customer. The trying is worth a few extra bucks. Getting a bike that fits you, and your riding style, is more likely to help you become a cyclist. Get the wrong bike, and even if it's a great deal, it will end up collecting dust in your basement.
