Giant Flaming Dork
turtle, and did, I appreciate the helpful input.
I did get a road bike today.
It is a Giant OCR1 '08
I tried the trek and the giant. as per the person in two of the stores I went to, they each said the same thing, that the Giant OCR was best for me.
Your height may limit your choices. I don't *think* that 5'2" puts you in the custom-frame realm, but it might.

Now I have a Cervelo Carbon Soloist
OCR 1.. that's pretty nice componetry for an alum frame... perhaps you should look into financing the bike and go for a TCR... my first bike was a ocr2 about 8 years ago. I rode it two years and my girlfriend ended up w/ it as I upgraded to the composite frame and wow there is a huge difference... I was able to afford the upgrade b/c of 12 mo no interest financing... (Now I have a Cervelo Carbon Soloist and she has the TCR b/c of the same thing)
If only I can stop all this running and ride a little more
lol... I used to be a huge roadie but now I'm running so much I don't have time for the bike, but I go from one to the other quite a bit I just wanna have a good year running and then be a little more diverse next year.
