Trek, Giant or Specialized - Opinions?(2 posts)

Trek, Giant or Specialized - Opinions?Aztecs
Jul 20, 2001 7:09 AM
Can anyone steer me in the right direction(s)? I have recently got into cycling by buying a mountain bike (Fisher Tass. about 5 months ago). I have quickly found that I really enjoy the road as opposed to off-road. I have a budget of about $750-1000. What should I be looking at. So far my list includes two choices: Trek 1200 Triple, Specialized Allez and Giant OCR 1. Are these solid picks? Also, should I can continue to use my MTB (maybe put some slicks on it?) for the rest of this season and wait for deals at the end of the summer/fall?
Any help would be appreciated

At your price range all the bikes you list are good choices. You should be able to get a bike with at least a 105 group, So look for this and pick the frame that fits you best.If you can wait a few months you will begin to see deals on ultegra equiped bikes in the $1000 range. If it was me I would wait and look for a good steel framed ultegra equiped bike..
