First Race Bike confusion!
So I really would like some advice since I have been on the Internet and also to at least 3 chains of cycle shops to ask the opinions of the staff there and had no help!
I'm a very new wannabe roadie looking to get involved in road races and I would like to buy my first road bike.
I have already a specialized hybrid with a women's geometric frame which I really enjoy riding and am tempted to go with the same brand with a women's specific frame this time around again; specifically the Dolce.
My good friend has also suggested I get her bike, the Cube Axial WLS but was told today the brand is not that great and the guy regretted buying a Cube.
Another company that runs cycle rides in Wales swear by Merida and I was told to get the Julliet but this sounded too much like a sales pitch slating all the other bike manufacturers.
I'm so confused by all the choice out there so any suggestions would help immensely!
