Hey, I'm new to cycling (with bikes other than rented obikes). I'm currently trying to look for a road bicycle since it piqued my interest and I've no idea what to get even though I have a general idea of what the basic stuff to look out for is.
My height is about 180 to 183 cm and I'm looking for a road bike with a budget of about $300.
I'll appreciate any advice as to where I can get a bicycle that suits me or any general reccomendations.
Yes, this is really hard to find good bike cheaper than $ 300. But you can try to look for used bikes in a good condition. This is really great method. I have bought my first bike like that and it was cheap and really great
Used is the way to go around that budget. However, take along a friend who has some knowledge on bicycles and cycling in general to ensure you get a decent bicycle that first and foremost fits you and actually is worth the money. Best of luck in your search!
Moving from o-bikes to roadies might be too big a leap so IMHO if you are free drop by any Decathalon Store that sells BTWin road bikes and test ride for a feel of posture and repsonsiveness on dropbars/thinner tires?
