The Next Bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

thank you all for the advicerich
Nobody regrets buying a Giant bike. The Propel has a very aggressive position, but I'm guessing you did try the bike & felt comfortable on it!

FYI, this post is worthless without pictures!
