Hi. I'm a mountain biker looking for a road bike for endurance and sprint training. I don't know very much about road bikes (but I'm not completely ignorant), and I've only had about 5 parking lot test rides. I've narrowed down my choices to a Giant TCR 1 composite, a Litespeed Solano, or a Cervelo Soloist Team (all come with the Ultegra grouppo for the most part). These bikes are all in the $2500 to $2700 price range. A LBS is willing to get me onto the Giant for $2000. I've never ridden a full carbon frame, but I did compare a full Ti bike with a Ti/carbon seat stay bike, and I really liked the feel of the carbon seat stay bike. My roadie friends keep showing me other bikes, but it's just confusing me more. I checked the reviews on the bikes I'm considering, and the feedback is generally favorable. I would greatly appreciate any advice you have regarding these bikes, since I'm pulling my hair out trying to decide what to buy.
