I have been looking at this: http://www.trekbikes.com/pdf/2008/catalog/road_rev2.pdf but I have no idea where to start...as usual. I am probably dreaming anyway as finances are pretty tight but let's assume I can convince swmbo...which bike is best?? Basically i want a fast bike, capable of being riding reasonably comfortably for regular loops iro of 30-40 miles and then the occassional longer rides say 60-80miles . I weigh in these days at 17 stone (ish) which feels lightweight for me, but I know is still about double what a race cyclist weighs! I want it to look cool as well 'cos I am vain like that I like the idea of a white coloured frame if possible. I would want spd pedals but I guess I would need to add those. Clearly one gets what one pays for...but I dont want to get a 'cheap' bike and have to sell it in a year or so, I'd rather get a good bike, pay the price and stick with it. I would also need a larger frame size as I am 6'4" tall....my tourer has a 64cm frame which I dont see available on any raceraod bike...would I get away with a 62? Like I said I may not get this bike until the maney is there but any thought from more experiences riders would be helpful and welcome. Ta.
