To soft, to hard, just right,MCCL
Oct 25, 2001 6:16 AM
My insurance has now settled my claim and I am having a problem deciding which bike is for me. I turn bikes at around 10 years but I don't want this to reflect good sound information. I have been beating my head over a few, well more then a few but great bikes by my call. I don't want you to compare these bikes. What I want is expert advice from owners or riders that have put miles on these bikes. I don't want to taint this posting by telling you what kind of a rider I am ie. sprinter, climber,etc. What I would like to find information on is the Pinarello Prince, Eddy Merckx, DeRosa UD and if any one has rode or seen the new DeRosa King (all carbon)and Ciocc. Reading articles in bike magazines just don't get it, one rider one article. Never a consensus. At this time this is what I am considering. Please just let me know it's positive and negative points. Like the Bears to soft, to hard, just right. Please tell me your height and weight also this can make a difference in a frames ride. Thanks MCCL
