That's for the positive comments... I'm going to listen to antipodean and sticky mine out till end of year my goal is to bad at least 2k to it... I'f I'm still loving riding then I'll consider and upgrade to a carbon bike. . Thanks for the positive and negative comments.. I am used to it from other forums... I have come from RC helicopters and my gosh.... You should see the $$$$$ flung around those forums... Thats where my money has come across from,,,,BrisVegas wrote:I'd be looking at something a bit nicer, even if it means cheaper components and wheels for now. The bike you're on wouldn't be a whole lot different to the entry level stuff you're considering.
Grab a CAAD10 or a Cervelo or a Colnago or something a bit special, anything really and build it up over time with choice bits.
I was looking at stuff in the $2k range a little while back. Scott Foil, Avanti Corsa, Giant TCR etc etc. the usual suspects.I started a thread on it, like many do and agonised over the pros and cons, but ultimately I couldn't get excited about the stuff I was looking at. Me personally, I went with a second hand bike that was much dearer when new and I'll get some flash wheels for it as funds arrive. The important thing is I have a bike I LOVE riding and that helps drag my fat arse out there when it's cold and dark.
Good luck with the shopping.
