- went shopping for a road bike today…
Sounds normal to me, mostly they’re dull, look-alike chunks of carbon fibre. Just buy something reliably competent and ride it would be my advice. Road riding is brilliant, the bikes themselves don’t do much for me. Then again I’m mostly unmoved by modern mountain bikes which are mostly dull, look-alike chunks of hydroformed aluminium or carbon fibre…
Edit: choose a colour you like though 🙂Posted 4 years agoKucoMember
Can I suggest going to a bike shop where they know something about road bikes or even better yet test ride some bikes.
Test rode a Trek Madone, Cannondale Super Six and Cube and a Scott, they all felt and handled differently. I really wanted the Madone but just didn’t like it and ended up with the Cannondale.Posted 4 years ago13thfloormonkMember
When I bought my second road bike I was completely taken by the looks and the style, it was a team edition Cannondale CAAD9. There was a pleasing old schoolness about the massive aluminium tubes, even the chain stays seemed to just be big fat tubes with little or no shaping to them. Great bike, wish I hadn’t sold it etc etc. Carbon doesn’t move me half as much.
I still look at Cannondale first when I’m window shopping for new road bikes, don’t like the CAAD10 quite as much as the CAAD9 though.Posted 4 years ago
