Also thinking of trade in my MTB.

Estimate Cost spend: RM5,600

im not a roadie, but i do also recommend polygon for sub 2k budget, or maybe you can look for exitway ergo logic (not ergo team). or maybe can look for good second hand roadbike here http://www.bicyclebuysell.com/#page=1&cat=...cipline%5B%5D=2 . just my 2 cents tongue.gif

Just want to share my current track/mash bike setup.. still looking for good rear wheelset, looking for mavic ellipse or miche pistard but the problem is i have to buy in pair front/rear, i just want the rear set so if anyone here want the front wheelset (ellipse or pistard) do letme know.

I got it used from craigslist for US$950 thumbup.gif Also the seller is a bike shop mechanic lady, so its in very good condition. If I were to buy a new one I'd have to get the 2012 model for $1600 + tax summore. Also Cannondale raised the MSRP by $100 but spec is still pretty much the same.

Can use the money saved to buy aero wheelset icon_idea.gif

I can get special price for this wheelset because they are one of the sponsors for my university team.

I read about on the net that is better just go for the entry bike you can afford, buy it for a shop that can do fitting for you and have a good service record. Since you don't know what you want you will upgrade it to your liking eventually later on. So I guess A shop shud be better choice for me right

If you are clear with what you want, you should tell the shopkeeper your desire bike.

hmm.All I can think of Polygon since it has some good groupsets to accomodate your taste.If not you should save at least RM 5k to get Giant, Cannondale or Scott.

Hey guys hope your can give me a honest answer. I want to get a road bike mostly for health reason to keep fit so my question is:
1. My budget is not more then rm 1k. Should I just forget about this hobby with that budget? Bcs I see ppl buying minimum 6k - price about the same to my Myvvi. Will a 1k bike be not enjoyable to ride???
2.mostly my gf will be joining me. Wta how do I join those cycling groups with boy & girls riders I usually see they wear uniform also. Bcs we would prefer to ride in a group.

***will be riding at Sunway or PJ area

to be honest, Rm 1k for a roadbike is similar to buying a mountain bike - heavy.Most people spent RM 4k and above just to get a weight below 9kg.and to get a groupset of Shimano Tiagra-Ultegra/Sram Apex-Sram Rival.And most importantly is this, if you don't plan for upgrading your bike, getting an expensive bike is the only way to enjoy cycling.If you're getting your gf to cycling too, why not cycling with other people too and increase the community of socializing while biking.My 2 cents advice.
