    Recovery Machine

    Hello there all.

    I have been very interested in getting a cross trainer/road bike for fitness and charity rides as well as some distance runs. I wanted a flat bar road bike and the Sette Xion seems to fit everything I am looking for, but.... Around here they don't sell Sette and I have no idea how I am going to test ride/fit one as I am VERY interested in this bike and do want to see before I buy and get fitted to one of the 5 frames they offer.

    So far all I can see is buying it online from PricePoint, but I really don't want to chance dropping 600.00 on a bike I might hate when I actually get it and mount up. So doing a fit and test ride IS A MUST, but how can I do that with a bike that seems to be only sold online?
    It seems like the perfect bike for me and it's 19 pounds/Tiagra stuff, 600.00 seems like a steal, but not if I can't ride it first.

    Any ideas? do I have to use a fit calculator and take a chance?

    Thank you so much, very appreciated.

    Sette is the Price Point house brand. The only place you are going to get them new is from Price Point.
    If a test ride is really that needed, then you'll have to find another brand.

    The Xion comes in five frame sizes, how can I possibly know which one to get? Usually I'm around the small/medium frame sizes, but I never bought a road bike before, it may be different.
