I am a newbie who has been bit hard by the road bike bug. I test rode a 2009 Fierte and preferred it over a Trek Medone 5.2. The 5.2 was sweet on the eyes vs. the black or white Fierte. The LBS had a CDA in Red/White/Blue -- team color of ? (as I mentioned I am new to the game, so give me a break). The CDA was orig. a different color and the LBS had it repainted by Serotta. The CDA is $500 more than the Fierte? Is it worth it? What is a good base price for the 2009 Fierte? Thanks for your insight!
