    Cool-blue Rhythm Confusion....

    Looking for a new bike for my wife... Their to much to choose from and also she is a small in most frames, so she cannot get a test ride..... We have come down to perhaps Rush4 08 (with up grades) SC Blur or Superlight and the Turner Flux.... : Any thoughts, we race endurance and ride all day.
    Cheers

    I would hazard a guess that your wife would be very happy with a properly specced bike from any of the ones listed above. I would say she could at least try to test ride a medium size to see how it feels.
    Regarding the Rush one of the points to consider is that it has a low bottom bracket, more stability downhill with a lower center of gravity, but if you ride in rocky terrain you hit pedals more often.
    I think with bikes you should go with the one that really seems to call to you in some way. If she cant decide play rock, scissors, paper to pick the bike.

    As Kevin said...any properly specced bike....Cannondale will be probably the least expensive while Turnenr the most and there are many more bikes to choose from...
