I a looking at getting a new bike this Spring, so a couple of weeks ago I sent out a call for any and all feedback on the range of Specialized bikes. Thanks everyone for the feedback.
The more I looked into it though, the geometry of all but the "team" bikes was just not going to work for me. The top tube length and the head tube lengths are just too much for bikes in my size.
So the search continued, and then I got to ride (briefly) a Ridley and have now come across what I think is a decent deal on some of the Ridley bikes. Not as well known in the USA, but still a reasonable label with some history to it.
So the call goes out again... anyone out there currently riding a Ridley or know anyone who is? I am mostly interested in experience in quality as well as overall impressions with the ride.
Right now I have an Excalibur in my sights....
