Dawes LIghtning Sport

Dawes Lightning Sport

Pros: Inexpensive, Comfortable, Perfect for beginner

Cons: Brakes, Weight

This bike for what it is (a $260 bike), is a fantiastic bike for a beginner!  I have never ridden a road bike and the only bike experience I have is from when I was a child.  About three months ago my fiance asked if we could start biking as another form of exercise.  I wasn't sure if she (or I for that matter) would stick to the sport.  I wanted to find us inexpensive bikes...

“ I have owned over 20 road bikes, several Italian brands and all three of the major US brands and this is the only bike I would buy again. It built into a 14.5 lb bike without super exotic wheels or parts.  I have riden it for almost 4 years and rebuilt it 3 times. It is probably not the most durable carbon frame on the market, but it does come with a lifetime warrenty. I enjoy it...” --bikedog12

Marin Stelvio Ultegra

“ This is my first road bike, and it has been excellent. Light carbon frame that's reasonable stiff given how light it is. I'm 135 lbs and don't tend to torque it on hills. Ultegra setup is smooth. I recommend this bike even though Marin is best known for their mountain bikes. ” --ConradV

Canondale CAAD10-3 Ultegra

“ It was time to replace my 1992 Pinarello Stelvio after 20 years of riding, training, and even a couple of seasons of racing.

The SLS 9. 8 build is so light in fact that it comes in at...
