Just trying to suss out which bike I should buy. I plan to upgrade from aluminium to carbon, and my budget is $2000, but if I can get something amazing for slightly more, I'd be keen.
All bikes are 105 groupset, and I have some decent wheels and pedals to throw on the new carbon. I plan to use it for longer rides (50km+) and as a dry-weather bike.
This is the De Rosa 348 (the one in the shop is Shimano, not Campy), $2200
Fuji Altamira 3.0 $1800
Focus 3.0 $2399
Thoughts? Which is the best value?

Aldgate Bike Shop is selling down its Bianchi stocks. Kim is away sick this week but he should be back on deck on monday. Im pretty sure saw some sub $2000 bikes on the wall last time I was in the shop.
Called him up last week, he said the best carbon he could get was $3000 sadly. I'd love a Bianchi, but need to settle for something cheaper
The alloy Bianchis are good.....
don't forget that dodgy chain!!
You realize that if you get any of these, you'll be duty-bound to win every race to the top of a hill that we have, ever. I like the De Rosa best.
Until you upgrade :-)
Silly me thought it was strong legs and fitness that makes you go fast on a bike.
don't forget the white bartape Don.
