|I will be looking for a new ride in the near future and would like people to compare the following bikes;
Eddy Merckx Titanium
or should I look at a used Lemond
Others in the 1000-1500 range for a frame ?
More interested in a relaxed geometry, for distance riding. Current ride is a 853 steel bike with 73 seat tube angle.
My big concern is that I am a large rider 210-220lbs how are the two above materials(CF,Titanium) going last on rough roads over time. Also this would be a replacement frame with limited change of components(Shimano) from my current ride, would the merckx would require a different BB ?
