So after much trying, shopping, reading, and maybe less testing, I bought a new road bike. Last years biking success was so great that this year I wanted to kick it up a notch, so I got a shmancy new road bike to take to the streets with. I hit a lot of bike shops, at perhaps the busiest time of the year, but it turns out after much research many of the bikes are very similar, and you just need to find the right feel in your component/price range. To do that you just need a sales person to give an iota of a damn about you and take some time and put you on a bike. So while I have been a stanch supporter of my local store, but this time around they just were too busy to give me any sort of time, so instead I went to a different local store, ReMy Sport in Streetsville.
In the end I went with the Giant Bicycles - OCR 1 which is a great "Sport Road Bike." It road really great, and I'm looking forward to picking it up next weekend, and going zooming about.
