    I've got a flat bar road bike Giant CRX3 and am considering going to a race bike, either a Giant OCR2w or maybe a OCR Alliance Sport W.
    I'm not racing, just recreational. Is it worth making the change? More comfortable? Faster? Gear change easier?
    Thanks for your input. Sam

    I bought a TCR Comp 0 last year. Great bike for long rides on the weekend. I have just purchased a CRX 1 for my daily commute. I do about 55Km's a day. So far, the CRX has done the trick.

    The CRX is a good alternative to those that don't feel quite comfortable on the drop bars.

    I hope this helps :)
