I’m Buying A Bike!


It’s almost that time to pick up a road bike for the triathlons this summer.  There’s a bike expo in town this weekend (advertising “1500 bikes on site and ready to ride home!”) and I’m going to check it out and quite likely purchase my bike.

I’m staying on the lower end of the price grid (no need to drop five grand on a bike right now).  The bike I’m leaning towards is a 2010 Trek 1.2 road bike.  My only concern is that there are a number of good bicycle brands like Felt and Gary Fisher that I just don’t know anything about.

Does anybody have a preference towards a Trek, Gary Fisher, Felt or some other brand of road bike out there?  I’d really be interested in getting other opinions.  I’ll probably be looking to drop the hammer on a purchase on Thursday or Friday.
