I'm about to come off 6 weeks on crutches with a broken hip after hitting a car that pulled into my path at 25mph or so. My bike frame was destroyed. Fortunately, the driver of the car had insurance and all my expenses are covered, including bike replacement. As a result, I have a check in my hands for $7k and now have to buy a new bike. The old one - an 2005 Orbea Orca - was a terrific bike, but I'm not happy with what I've read about the 2009 version. My LBS is pushing a Giant TCR Advanced. However, they also carry both Cervelo and Cannondale, both of which have upper end models that on paper sound great. Anybody have any advice for me here - which direction should I go? On a related question, the Orca had Campy Record with a compact crank. Those components all survived, but I am thinking I will put those on a used frame, not the new bike I am going to buy. Campy now has the 11 series. My LBS suggests I forgo the extra $$ for the Record and buy the Chorus. Thoughts on that? Incidentally, although I am 53, I am in pretty good shape and love to hammer it, both on the flats and the hills.
