what is best new road Bike in $600-$1200 range?

Postby klippy » Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:28 pm

Hi all. I want to buy a good first serious road bike. I have been riding a hybrid up to 50km and feel its time to move onto a proper road bike... only that i dont really want to take out a mortgage to get a sweet one! I only have about $600-$1200 to spend. Would I get better value getting a 2nd hand one? or is it safer just getting a new one in that range... and if so what would you recommend?

The Azzuri/Verite bikes are ridiculously good value for money.
I wouldn't worry about Ultegra and save a bit more and get the 105 version:

Or this one has a stiffer frame and slight upgrade in some components:
