I finally broke down and ordered a road bicycle. This was not an easy choice and took me almost 2 months of looking around before I went for it. These things are not cheap at all! There are way too many options and styles then you could ever believe. It’s not like going to the department store and picking a bike off the rack. You have to test drive them and get fitted. With me being 6’2″ it limited my choices a bit. I went with the Trek Emonda S 5 2016 model in white. Trek is in the middle of their 2016 model closeout sale and there were only two of these bikes left in the country my size. The sale discounts the bike $400.00, that may sound good in savings but doesn’t change the fact it’s still expensive. The bike should be here this week and I’m very excited to get training.
Here is a photo of the bike.
It’s a full carbon fiber frame and weighs 8.6kg. If you are interested in the full specs of the bike please follow this link.
