I'm on 52/36 and 11/28 right now, but next bike would certainly be 50/34 and 11/32. Lots of hills where I live and I love to climb.

Knowing what I know now, for $1500, for a new rider, I'd get a Cannondale CAAD12 105. Brand new. It's listed at $1699, but I have seen this as low as $1200(in REI sale). Or perhaps an LBS has...

I use the $20 Performance Bicycle UPF50 arm screens. They work well, don't slide down if put on correctly. They're easier to put on than actual sun screen.

I'm 5'11, 190 lbs, 33 inch inseam. I ride a 56cm 2016 Fuji Tread. Sometimes I feel perhaps the 54cm size of this bike would be better, but then other days I feel 56cm is the exact right size,...
