I am going to buy a new 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

I am going to buy a new bike!!

I am planning on buying a bike pretty soon because I don't have one at the moment and having to borrow someone else's bike gets a bit annoying after a while.

I was thinking about getting a single speed at first but since I'm no hipster I think something with gears and proper brakes would better fit my needs. So I think I'd like to get a nice roadbike that's lightweight and allows me to go fast. I really like the look of the Charge bikes https://www.chargebikes.com/home/ so I'd like to get something that looks like that.

I don't have a whole lot of money to spend so I am looking at spending €500 or less if at all possible. So I was hoping you could help me along and maybe point me in the right direction. Would buying an old bike and some new parts save me a whole lot of money or would buying a cheaper new bike be smarter?
