So I'm thinking about embracing my inner roadie and picking up a legit road bike. I'm a big guy so it has to be capable of supporting at least 28/30mm tires and since I'm not a racer or club rider I want a comfortable geometry. My budget is probably about $1500 but I'm okay with spending less. The current front runner in my search for a new bike is the 2011 Jamis Bossanova. 520 frame, carbon fork, BB5 discs. Ideally I'd have liked higher end derailleurs and shifters but these can always be upgraded later. Some other bikes I've considered include: Raleigh Port Townson Raleigh Clubman Novara Verita (see 'road' tab) and the Masi Speciale Randonneur Any other bikes I should look at? I haven't made up my mind between some finer points like compact doubles vs triple cranks and brifters vs bar ends. I need to go test ride some bikes to get an idea of what I really want but I'm trying to make a short list of relaxed geometry bikes that support reasonable tires. Thanks!
