need some advice on a new bike...I race now and plan to do so in college as well, but am on an extremely tight budget (hoping for WELL under $2000). Here are my three options, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Cannondale CAAD9-5
Allez Sport Compact Double '09
Fuji Roubaix Pro

Thanks so much

Fuji's are pretty cheap right now

Just picked up an '09 Fuji SL1 for just about $2100 tax included. It came from Performance so it works out to under $2000 when you factor in the 10% back in store credit. It is Ultegra SL instead of Dura Ace but I can upgrade a few things over time and should have a very race-worthy bike at a budget price.

Any bike that fits and has at least Shimano 105 or Rival components on it will work fine. The big key is making sure it fits.

Last year I raced all season on a Scott S20 which weighed in around 20 pounds with pedals, computer and cages. It didn't hold me back at all and I only paid $1300 for it. Buy what fits and race it.

The key is don't race anything you can't afford to replace :D
