Decisions, Decisions on a new bikecxfan
Aug 13, 2002 11:18 AM
I have just sold my "old" CX bike and need a new one for the next 3 years....I have narrowed down the choices to:
Colnago Dream Plus, Alan Carbon Cross Plus or the Empella Bonfire.

Since riding any of these is next to impossible, maybe someone can comment on ride and fit.....

hey you left out the Ridley Cross bike, since you've narrowed it down to pure Euro Race Steeds. Longish TT and a nice ride. A 57 has between a 57 and 58 TT which makes it fit well for a rider in the 59-60 cm range. Between the 3 you've chose I've only seen them (usually in smaller sizes) I'd go with the empella.
