  1. I am actually looking at the alloy one, white....

    I am actually looking at the alloy one, white. Unfortunately, they decided not to put disk breaks on the 105 carbon (the only model in the line up without disk breaks)... And Ultegra is way outside...
  2. The problem is, I can try a Domane no problem,...

    The problem is, I can try a Domane no problem, even in the right size, but not Cannondale. I went to a women's ride last weekend, and nobody has a Cannondale (

    I might have to do what I don't like...
  3. So, this weekend I have seen and ridden Ruby...

    So, this weekend I have seen and ridden Ruby Elite Disk and base Diverge (without future shock). I am stuck, as I have not yet seen 2018 Cannondale Synapse in any modification. None of the stores...
  4. Yes, of course. Originally, carbon was all I...

    Yes, of course.
    Originally, carbon was all I was considering (in my head I already have a very good aluminum bike, so next bike should be an upgrade in every respect).
    I am starting to think that...

    How unfortunate (. Is there no dealers in the area, who might have one in stock on premises?

    I will appreciate any info! Thank, Muirenn!

    The state our trails are in right now you would need a bulldozer....

    Just checked. Hopefully, someone else will find this information useful.
    Trek used 11-32 on both Tiagra and 105 Domane.
    Specialized Ruby (base with Tiagra) uses 11-34, just like Cannondale...
  8. We have some hills, and some very high hills...

    We have some hills, and some very high hills (included in many charity rides). My commute is flat.
    I have also realized that 11-34 is more important than having hydrolics.

    I have lots of...

    It seems that the new trend for many companies is to turn their endurance bikes into a multi-purpose machine. Effectively, my original idea of purchasing a road bike and throwing 70030 tires has...
  10. to be entirely honest with you, I was not even...

    to be entirely honest with you, I was not even considering this particular bike. It is too large to start with and at this price point makes very little sense to me.

    I went to a very large and...
  11. There is one model this year. With APEX 1 HDR...

    There is one model this year. With APEX 1 HDR group set. And very pricey. Smallest size is 46 and standover is very tall too, at 75 cm.

    The one I have tried is men's/unisex.
  12. But I know in the past, it seemed they would not...

    But I know in the past, it seemed they would not fit someone less than 5'4" or so.
    No, the bike is too high off the ground. Even in size 44, which they no longer make. Now the smallest is what they...

    The closest Advocate Cycles store is like an 9 hour drive one way. Unfortunately...
    Of, course, there is always an option to send it to a mailbox storage place in Niagara Falls (has been done with...

    Thank you.

    Well, sometimes height is not everything. I know women who are 5'3 with shorter legs than mine. So, I am not suprized at all that Vaya 50 fit you. I have looked up the specs, and...
  15. You should. It's a nice bike. What I have noticed...

    You should. It's a nice bike. What I have noticed almost immediately (I was out in the parking lot) is how much better it takes tight turns than my Vita Elite. I find Vita a very snappy bike, very...
  16. Yes, there is not a whole lot out there. For...

    Yes, there is not a whole lot out there. For instance, the new Checkpoint by Trek starts at size 49 frame, and has a standover of whopping 74 cm. Very few women under 5'3 would clear that. The...

    Unfortunately, anything with Ultegra would have to be used. Although, at the bike show I saw gorgeous Wilier road bike with Ultegra in my size 50% off for $2000.

    My daughter has a Norco, it is her 3rd Norco bike.

    I went to a well-stocked Specialized dealer today and had a chance too see everything that I wanted to see. I saw 2018 Ruby (base), 2018 Diverge...
  19. I saw that Liv yesterday. And the previous year's...

    I saw that Liv yesterday. And the previous year's model too. They are very nice bikes and I am definitely not writing them off as an option (the celeste colour scheme almost makes in a Bianci).
    And...

    I would really like not to leave $2000 CAD price point. I realize that a lot of the bikes I am considering are over that without a sale, but there are a few last year models that are. And I have seen...
  21. Most of the trails around me are paved....

    Most of the trails around me are paved. Everything along the lake Ontario is practically paved. Unless you go mountain-biking. Some parts of trails are packed dirt. On my commute to work it's 90%...

    Thank you for your suggestion on Salsa Bikes. There are dealers in the area and I will definitely check them out.
  23. Thank you for the info on Giant. So, I have...

    Thank you for the info on Giant.
    So, I have actually seen Specialized Diverge WSD 2018. And in my size. 49 fit great, but here is the thing. They position it as their gravel bike. Well, this gravel...

    Thank you for sharing.
    I really liked Trek Silque S5 2017, and I can basically wheel it out today $1000 off MSRP.
    But like you I'm OCD about my technology and I am sort of now afraid to buy carbon...

    Last weekend I actually went to a huge bike show. But I had two kids with me and it was pretty hard to really look (we mostly went to see BMX competitions).
    I have tried Trek Silque S5 2017 (huge...
