|Road bike needed, any suggestions?||gerwerken|

|I'm looking for my very first road bike, and I need some help. I'm looking for something light weight with raceable componets that won't break the bank (tough I know). I would perfer good steel over aluminum, and stiffness isn't generally too much of a problem (I'm a light weight at 110). My stand over height is 29.3inches, and the top tube length of my cyclo-cross bike is effectively 20.6, and I am very comfortable on it.
If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the feedback.

|Look into a Felt 75 with Tiagra. I got mine for 800 and it has shift-from-drops capable geartrain. its 21 pounds, probably lighter in your small size. I love mine. I'm 6'2" and 190 pounds, but it feels great going up hills and is very smooth cause of its double butted frame.|| |
