Buying my first road bike this weekend and in my budget have narrowed it down to a Fuji (Newest) and Specialized (allez sport triple.) They are pretty equal in terms of components, so it comes down to brand. FUJI or SPECIALIZED?
Thanks for any help,
What it should come down to is fit and feel. Take em out for a spin and see which one you'd rather ride for hours and hours. If they both feel great then pick the best looking bike.
I've been using a Specialized Allez Sport for about a year now and can't find a single thing wrong with it. After 2000 miles, it's had nothing more than linkage adjustments. It just works!
Hey, came back to check this post and noted that I made a mistake in my last reply. I have 3000 miles (not 2000) - probably not too significant but speaks a little better of the bike.
Went with the Fuji and love it! The bikes handled similarly...in the end, it was the shop I invested in.
Beat my 10 mile by 4 minutes and change. I can see it takes a little getting used to though...there were a few times where I thought I was going to wipe out!
Thanks for all the imput!
