I am about to make a life altering decision soon and I must say I can’t wait. What might this decision be about? Well, simply, it’s what road bike I’m going to get. Yes, I have a very dramatic life.. The decisions are rather endless with that large amount of brands, components and styles available, but that has been narrowed down with my decision to purchase the bike in a local bike shop so that I may test and eventually be fitted. Being a native to Louisiana, bike shops are sparse and their brands are rather in common. So, I’ve narrowed the brands down to Cannondale, Raleigh, and Trek and to help narrow down even more, the components need to be the Shimano 105’s. Which helps pin point a good price range as well. I must admit, I am a mountain kind of guy and the road world is completely new to me, but I’m excited more than any thing right now with hitting the pavement. I’ve narrowed down my choice in each brand to one bike, now the choice is, which one? I’ve listed below my choices, so which do you like the most? Reasons? Experience? Anything would help at this point, haha. Plan to do test rides of each in the next couple weeks to hopefully narrow the choice down even more.
(in no certain order)
So there are my choices. Right now, I’m kind of leaning toward the Cannondale for one reason or another. Though I do like the color on the Raleigh, haha. Let me know what you think! Would help greatly.
