Or maybe it's the problem with modern bikes. Having spent eleven and a half months on bikesales and google trying to figure out what my upgrade should be I was as confused today as I was back then. Why? Because there are so many really good modern (10 year old or younger) bikes. Nope, I haven't riden any of them but people that have riden/owned/worked on them usually have very little bad to say. The hardest part for me was trying to find a bike that was in the budget and best suited my needs. Then I had to contend with the insurance agency.
