I've been slowly turning from a mountainbiker into road racer ^^ but I haven't got a proper bike for it yet.
I either end up doing smaller bouts using a marlin gary fisher or I borrow my dad's Stevens hybrid, but I'm looking to buy a racing bike in a few months when time allows
Show me your bike and/or comment on below to help me out
Also, pictures of your nicest findings! I sometimes find the most amazing views right outside my doorstep!What I'm looking for
-I tend to cycle alongside a canal for 80 km bouts. I aim to increase distance rather than speed
-Don't care much for different terrains or huge speed buffs, so I'm looking at endurance rather than performance bikes.
-I don't want a too rigid framework. Don't want to get home with a broken back
-~600-1000 Eu budgetWhat I've seen so far
-Trek émonda ALR 4
-Giant Contend SL1
-Specialized Allez ('cuz cheap XD)
-Scott Speedster 40Personal preferences
-Wouldn't need disk brakes so I'd rather not pay unnecessary money. Plus, I can't replace those myself (yet)
-Tiagra set is fine because it fits road-only cyclers best, but Ultegra is welcome if budget allows
Would it be doable to get an ultegra set on the scott speedster 40 and be done for 700 bucks or so?
