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.

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

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.
