    Which Bike Do I Buy?

    I Have Been Out Of The Racing Scene For Some Time Now And Wish To Return To It And I Am Undecided On Which Brand Of Bike To Buy So I Neep Some Advice. I Am Looking At Either A Giant Advanced Series, Pinarello Paris Or Prince Or Trek Brand. Which Out Of These Brands Wold Be The Best To Race With As I Want To Sell It Every Year And Buy A New Bike So Resale Must Be Good As Well. Anybody Have Any Advice For Me On Which Way To Go At All?

    So ironic that his actual name is not capitalized.

    jason - I would base your decision on fit rather than brand name and resale value.

    Visit your local bike shop and tell them what you've told us. If the bike shop is any good at all, they will help you find what you need. There are many bikes that will fill your needs equally well.

    I suspect your plan of replacing the bike every year will sound pretty nuts to most people. At the very least, it will be an expensive plan, but that's not a concern if your budget allows it.

    Lighten up, man. It's a forum, if you take everything seriously you're going to get pretty angry pretty quickly. +1 on what the other posters said.

    I agree with John. The question you posed is just too broad to get any kind of legit answer. I don't know how many bike brands there are, but there's lots and that doesn't include different models and components. Your question is like saying, "I want to race cars. What kind should I buy?"
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    One winner after another. Oh, he's buying a $4000+ bike, apparently.
