Need advice on new bike.otter9
Jul 2, 2002 9:13 PM
I've got the new bike bug! I've been riding for 3 years and I want to get a better bike. I've narrowed it down to Dean's Ultimate El Diente cti (ti w/carbon seat stay) or Trek 5200
OCLV but I am open to other options. I weigh 205 lbs. so bottom
brackets seem to turn to jelly when I mash the pedals. I like to ride centuries, so all day comfort is important. Most of the
rides I do are in the very mountainous terrain of Northern New Mexico so a lightweight bike is also important. I'd like to keep it around $2700. Anybody know of the ideal bike for me?
