Hi there everyone I have been a keen mountain biker for about 2 year and own a Gary Fisher Cake. I am wanting to buy a road bike as it will be a far more conveniant way to be able to cycle and store my bike whilst at University during most of the year. After talking to some friends I was originally thinking about builing a bike frame up but after reading some forums and other websites it seems that saving money is unlikely and sourcing parts will take up a huge amount of time, as well as the need to purchase specialised and infrequently used tools in order to complete the task. As a result of this I am considering just purchasing a used bike instead. The only problem is that I have virtually no idea where to start! I want to spend no more than £350 on the bike. I think I would like to go for an aluminium bike as from what I've read a cheap carbon fibre bike is not a fantastic idea but what do you guys think? Other than that do you guys know of any specific decent bikes to look out for or any big no-nos? I am 5'11" so am thinkin 55-59cm frame but would check this in a bike shop before I bought anything. Thanks for any advice you can give me, I think this is far harder than choosing a decent mountain bike from the research I've done so far!
