New Bike - narrowing it down.. opinions? suggestions?suedehead
May 11, 2003 5:41 PM
right now i have a 2002 specialized allez. aluminum frame, sora components, etc.

a few months ago i bought a used single speed (richard sachs frame, converted to single speed by previous owner, got it at recycle-a-bicycle in nyc for 150$!!)... anyway. i love the traditional road geometry and i love the way steel rides.

so i am thinking of selling the specialized and getting a steel frame complete road bike. nothing custom. i'm on a college student budget. so ive been looking a lot online.
at the moment i have it narrowed down to these two.

Lemond Tourmalet and the Marin Argentina.
both are steel frames, basically the same components)
any opinions, other bikes to consider that i may not have checked out yet?
thanks!
