Think I'm Pulling the Trigger!

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

Think I'm Pulling the Trigger!

I've been looking for a new road bike with a $3,000 budget. After looking at endurance vs race bikes, I preferred the race orientation more. I tested Trek, Cannondale, Specialized, Giant, Raleigh, Bianchi, Scott and a few others I can't remember right now. I narrowed it down to the Trek Madone, Cannondale Supersix EVO and the Specialized Tarmac due to feel and the availability at my LBSs. But everytime I rode the Cannondale Supersix EVO, I felt like I was home.

I have to go to my preferred LBS Monday on my way home from work for a tune up on my old bike. I plan on pulling the trigger on the Cannondale Supersix EVO 3 Ultegra. They have one in a box in stock and quoted me a price of $2,600+ tax, extensive fitting included. I thought this was a good price, especially after looking at prices on the web today.

I'm pretty excited about it.

Isn't feeling like you are home not what you want to feel like on a new bike? I thought the point of cycling was the adventure away from home?
Good luck with the new bike...does seem like a good deal.

Funny comment. Honestly, I like riding away from home, but I like returning too!

Do it! Do it!

I was offered $2,700 for a 2014 Supersix EVO 3 and thought it was an awesome deal.
