Help choose new bikeditchbanger
Dec 29, 2002 6:35 PM
My choices are down to Trek 2300, Specialized Allez Comp, and Giant TCR1. I am leaning towards the compact framed bikes since I ride MTB quite a bit. The Giant and Specialized seem more racy and the Trek more of a touring bike, is this correct?

I don't plan on riding more than 50-60 miles at a time, and I want to use the road bike to train for some XC racing. Any help is appreciated. Thank You

Either the Giant or the Specialized will fit your needs nicely. As has been said a million times before on this forum, just make sure the bike fits you. Your choices will be small, medium, and large if you go with these brands, so make sure you know how you "fit" in to their sizing schemes.
