Hi, I have had a giant hybrid for a few years now but want to do more road cycling. I am a pleasure rider and not a race rider. Although I want to do a cycle holiday around the Sth Island on my new bike. Any suggestions of Brands and Bikes would be much appreciated. I have a budget of $0 -$1000 NZD.

If you stay with Giant, there are these two options for various terrains, but one of them is better for off roads than the other: Rove O 980 usd. my choice would be this other one because it also allows you to hit various terrains (but not hard core mountain gravel paths) but in the form of a road bike, which i prefer, Invite 2 1150 usd.
