Okay, in the poll that said we ought not spend $5,000 on our first bike I registered a "no" because I spent far less than that. Now, however, I'm looking around in that general price range. So, what should I buy? I've got a Cannondale 700 right now, and like it a lot, but rather than upgrade components piece-meal (and if there's an argument that I SHOULD do that, please tell me), I'm thinking of making the leap into something already equiped with same. I'm looking for a road bike, obviously. I ride a great deal more than I race, but many of the folks I ride with are quite competitive and strong riders, so keeping up is a challenge. And I hope to race a bit more, although you won't see me in anything but the local races. Given my fondness for my Cannondale, I've eyed the Six13, but I'm eager to hear any and all opinions since many of you have experience with higher-end bikes and I've none. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
