I’m after some advice. It’s about time I got myself a bicycle. I need to get out of the city more and would like to explore the mountains surrounding Taipei by bike. By road bike, to be precise.
Can anyone give me some advice on my options? I don’t really want to spend any more than $25 000. I’ve seen new Giants for about $22 000: has anyone had any experience with these? Any issues with them?
My only previous road bike was an older model KHS flite 1000, which I was thoroughly impressed with. I’d settle for a hybrid and I’d consider buying second-hand. I do want a fairly low lowest gear, as I plan to do a fair bit of climbing. And I’m 183cm tall, which may be an issue in finding a larger frame.
