hmm you stated u wanted to start cycling *again* so i assume u are familiar with road bikes specifically? if not best to test ride one out as i have known people who buy road bikes only to find that the riding posture/position is totally not to their liking....

Does it have to be new? You can get a much better deal used. Just ensure you know how to verify the quality of the bike. There are plenty of helpful and informative videos out there on this topic.

Hi guys!, Brendan here from Sinagpore. I recently wanted to start cycling again and wanted to invest in a good road bike.

I recently cam across, Triban RC 500 for around $750SGD. I was recommended that this was a good bike with okay specs. But its currently out of stock till late Dec (according to the salesperson). So i still have time to consider other options.

I know that road bikes arent cheap, but my max price range is $850SGD. Im looking for a bike that is good for a beginner and money worth. I hope that you can advise/reccomend me some bikes.

Best regards!
