    First, I'm new to this whole thing. During the past month, I've been doing a lot of research on various road bikes both online and by visiting many LBS. I've become interested in the following bicycles that fall in my 2000$ budget;

    1) 2015 KHS Flite 900

    2) Cervelo R2 (105)

    3) Kestrel Talon Carbon Aero Road Bike Ultegra 11

    4) KHS 2013 Flite 850 Shimano Ultegra/105 Bike

    5) Planet X Pro Carbon Ultegra 6800

    6) Motobecane Super Strada Ultegra 22

    What do you guys think?

    Hello! Have you had a chance to test ride any of them? A good (comfortable ) fit is very important.

    Also what type of cycling are you interested in? For example, paved trails or long road rides or racing or.....

    - Gray 2010 carbon WSD road bike, Rivet Independence saddle
    - Red hardtail 26" aluminum mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle
    - Royal blue 2018 aluminum gravel bike, Rivet Pearl saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver 2003 aluminum road bike
    - Two awesome worn out Juliana saddles

    All good bikes, great components, but as NY suggests, you really need to test ride them. Reading up on specs and reviews is part of doing your homework, but it really is amazing how two bikes that spec out the same can be so different when you ride them. Never ceases to amaze me, even after a lifetime of riding.

    Thanks for the replies. I have not really tested any of these just yet but I am planning to this weekend. I just thought maybe some people here owns them and I wanted to get their personal view.
