Not to sound like a smartass, but without a little bit more help it is difficult to give good advice. What type of riding do want to do? What's your price range? What bikes have you ridden?

See fairings on roadbike thread for some ideas.

This will wake people up. I have always been partial to Bianchi, and make sure you get Campy components.

Your trusty backside will tell you which is the best bike for you. Ride a few bikes for at least an hour each. And unless you're planning on racing, don't get talked up to a $2,000+ bike. 105 or Daytona-equipped bikes are rock solid. Steel? Aluminum? Ti? It's up to your butt.
Hi get a steel Tommasini with a steel fork and lotsa chrome! nm.calm

I just recently put Shimano Ultegra components on a Tommasini Super Prestige. I have really like the ride thus far, but I guess I was only imagining that! I guess I will leave the bike out tonight for the trash guys...and NO I won't tell you where I live ;-)
