I could use some advice on purchasing a new road bike.
I could use some advice on purchasing a new road bike. Currently I have a 2010 Trek Alpha and am looking for an upgrade. A few decision points I’ve found difficult to determine are
Performance vs Endurance
Brand X vs Brand Y
Shimano 105 vs ultegra
Carbon wheels vs alloy.
I ride 20-30 miles 3 days a week with goals of completing a century and eventually dabbling in Category racing. My price range is $2000-3000.
Also do you think ultegra is worth the price bump?
Any experience and advice would be much appreciated!
