for those considering a bike:

just bought a felt 50r. $1400. great frame with great components. (triple chainring; ultegra except for 105 cassette)

I'll tell you. i was considering a giant tcr 1/2, cannondale r2000/r700 and the Klein series. so far, i love the felt. i've never been so satisfied with such an expensive investment. can't wait for the next cycling and tri seasons!
Well that is great but.......MB1

Post a review after you get the cost down to a buck a mile. Takes at least that long to really get to know your bike (what it does well and what it could be better at).

Don't forget the pictures.
"$1 per mile" -- that's a pretty cool way of looking at it andbill

about right, in my limited judgment. That's about what I've got into my Pegoretti, and it's about spot on for how long it's taken me to appreciate what I've got. I'm only now about satisfied with the way that the bike is set up and what it can do.
It can do anything, as I'm learning; it's a cool bike. Paint sucks, though.
So think about it and give us a balanced review. nmMB1

your right about the buck/mile thing. although, can't say that i don't deserve it. . . . cause i pulled 1300+ miles on my dad's old peugeot - 40lb steel from '67 . . . 2 triathlons and 85 mile rides!
$1 a mile? that's a couple weeks right?cyclopathic
