I have to confess that after all these years of collecting bikes I've finally gotten the feel for what a good bike is and isn't. If I were going to list my bikes in the order of how well they ride it would look like this:

Look KG241
Fuji Newest, Merckx Ex, Basso Loto
Colnago Super, Merckx Corsa 0.1
Colnago C40
Raleigh Team CX, Pinarello CX
Atala CX/Touring bike
Santa Cruz Superlight

The difference between the Colnago C40 and the Look isn't much. More like the difference between a Fat Tire Ale and a Sierra Nevada.

Most high end bikes would match the C40. And a lot of not-so-high-end. I had a '90 Bottecchia painted in ADR colors and made with Alle tubing that was a GREAT riding bike.

Price isn't very closely connected to riding quality.
