Is anyone out there riding this bike that can provide some feedback? It is a hybrid, I guess. The component group (Shimano 105) doesn't look too bad for an entry level to road biking guy like myself.
I'm a big guy though - 6'-5" 225# so I worry about jumping on any of the $400 - 600 road bikes that have Sora and Alex rims. I have a fairly short commute - 7 miles/day, but very consistent 5 days a week all year. I get the feeling that I would wear through Sora equipment pretty quick.
I've been riding my NRS mountain bike for the last couple years, but taking an interest in road for the efficiency. My lower back has given me some trouble in the past (when I was out of shape) which is why I'm even considering the Cypress. Not sure if I will like the road riding position. The other bike I am considering is a Cannondale Road Sport 500 which is on sale for $ 450. It has Tiagra and Mavic rims and seems to be a pretty good deal considering the bike retails for $900. I haven't riden either one yet but wanted to see if anyone could comment.
