So this year is almost over, so this is going to be for next year. Right now I ride some cheap mountain bike and its not that great. Frankly, I have never really had a nice bike, but I do bike a lot.
I bike on roads and paths mostly, but can sometimes go more off-roading (nothing crazy though). I am looking for a top of the line bike, but I know that bikes can range all the way up to 10s of thousands.
So I think my budget would be $2000 and below. Obviously the less I have to pay the better, but I want the best I can get.
Now the other part of this is I don't know what a nice bike is, what comes with it? I think I know that they should have disc breaks (I think that's what they are called), I know carbon fiber is suppose to be nice, and I think I would want that. Anything else, obviously nice looking as well. Basically, I want it to be able to take a beating and be used a lot without it falling apart. I want to feel good riding it (right now my gears hardly work, they make noise, my entire bike really makes noise, breaks hardly work...etc...) I don't want any of that.
If you think you know a better place/forum to ask this, let me know as well.
