I need to find the best bike between 1500-2000 for my friend. her mom wants to get her a new bike for graduation

any suggestions on where to start looking?

I was thinking of the Litespeed alu/carobon bikes. the hyperion or capella. we have a shop sponsor and can get 10 or 20% off so that would bring it to within the price range. how are the litespeeds?

my friend is about 5'5", with a 31" inseam(?) not really sure, i forgot her measurements

go to www.coloradocyclist.com and check out the Douglas Fusion. It was rated one of the best cycling buys by bicycle magazine.

I'd look into the Lemonds. I have a Zurich and love this bike. Very nice!!! Right in your price range.

Either the Zurich or BA is a great ride at that price point. If she's really 5'5" with a 31" cycling inseam, she probably won't need a WSD bike, but Lemond offers WSD models of its bikes.

The Litespeed will have some cache but IMHO will not ride any better than the Lemond.
