I’m shopping for a bike! I would like to spend between $500-$800 on the bike alone. I figure that should be enough for a decent entry-level bike. I went to visit Bicycle World over the weekend and tested out a $800 51cm Giant and a $3,000 48cm Cervelo. I learned that it can be painful if a bike is too high for me and that I need some practice getting on and off a bike. And turning. Lol. Clearly, I am out of practice.
Ooooooohhh, so pretty! This would match my workout clothes. =)
Too bad this baby is $2,000 (2012 Specialized Ruby Compact)!
More financially realistically speaking, maybe the Trek Lexa (retail $729.99):
or a Specialized Tricross (retail $990.00), which I believe is more of a hybrid bike:
That all black looks nice right?? Well, I’m going to continue my search… got to make a trip to Bike Barn soon!
