Urgent bike advice: Specialized vs Avanti

Postby Coolbikerty » Sun Jun 02, 2013 1:36 pm

Hi, I'm in the final stages of my bike purchase. I was ready to buy the Avanti aria 1 http://www.avantiplus.com.au/products/a ... a-1-womens

It's lightweight and inexpensive.

But now I'm in the Specialized store and they're trying to talk me into the Vita,
For $100 more they claim the vita has a better, lighter frame.

What to you guys think? Help please!!

I think - test ride both, and pick the one you like better.

I think for that kind of price difference, you should pick the one you like the look of the most.

They are going to be very similar performance wise.

Thanks guys :) I did test rides and I couldn't really pick it, so I went with the cheaper Avanti.
I'm excited to start riding round Melb. I'll have to start looking for some good bike tracks.
