if you can stretch the budget I would certainly like to recommend you to the specialized roubaix comp/elite. I bought one about 2 months ago after searching every nook and cranny in melbourne bike shops. for me it was totally about the frame, parts are parts and depending on what is important to you an upgrade is always an option.robalert said:I would love to upgrade to a full carbon framed beast but don't want to spend a bomb
I love the ride characteristics of carbon combined with its lightness and bling factor
Wonder what ppl think is best value for around $3K
I am a fan of the OCR composite but seems there is quite a bit of competition against Giant these days
its full carbon and runs a compact crank set which means that hill ascents are a total breeze. with an ultegra rear and 105 running gear its a brilliant way to start your riding days, it should also be epuiped with shimano 560 wheels which are underrated for there abilities and run just sweet as.
bang for bucks I can't go past it
