New Bike Dilemma
So basically I ride around 40 miles a day back and forth work. I love cycling and possibly in the future do some small organised races/time trials. Last month I got knocked off my bike and it was a right-off. It was a Trek Madone, cant remember the exact model number but its black,blue and white and cost around £1200 new. So im going to be getting a new bike and I dont want to downgrade, if anything I was looking to get a carbon fibre frame instead of the steel frame/carbon forks on the Madone I had. Im looking at around £1500 to spend, Giant. I dont have the opportunity to test ride the bikes but I want the bike to be future proof and dont want to buy another bike in the near future. Have been looking at the new Trek Madone, Orbea and Giant just to name a few. Any tips to how to choose one over the other?
