I’ve been doing a little homework comparing brands/models/groupsets.
From our first bike clinic I concluded thAt the following things are ideal to look for in a bike:
-alloy w/ carbon fork
-never clairis, maybe sora, ideally tiagra or 105 in shimano
-11-28 or higher crank sets
I think this leads to bikes with shimano 105 parts.
-Liv Avail SL 1 (105)
– Cannondale Synapse (105)
– trek lexa (sora)
Any other recommendations?
Is it worth thr price difference to go 105?
