Looking for a new bike.

This xmas I asked everyone for money rather than a present, this would then form my bike fund, and enable me to buy a better bike than I would otherwise be able to afford.

Today I visited the 2 local shops selling bikes, and made notes of the model, specs and prices on offer. I then came back and researched the models on a couple of cycling forums and basically they are all crap. There were a couple of names that kept cropping up as good makes - Giant, Specialised and Trek. So I looked into these and they are significantly more expensive than what I had anticipated spending.

I have searched on Ebay and found a number of 2nd hand Giant and Trek road bikes, and to be fair they probably do represent better value for my money, it's just that I wanted to go into a bike shop, pick a bike I liked, have it set up for me by people who know what they are doing, and I could then ride my brand new bike home. Yet another one of life's disappointments eh?

Anyway, I've been online for hours and I've had enough for now. There's about 6 or 7 in my "Watched" items on Ebay, I'll look again tomorrow.
