I'm looking at upgrading and wanted to get some opinions or suggestions. I'm on a Trek 1500 right now with stock everything (105/Ultegra grouppo). I've just started my search but so far I'm looking at the 5.2 Madone, Giant TCR C1 or C2, Guru Flite, and possibly Orbea Onix.
Any other bikes that I should consider in the $2k-$3k range? Any makers that I should stay away from? Has anyone used Sram components? I am interested in the Force grouppo as a possible alternative to ultegra.
I'm lucky in that there are plenty of bike shops in the area and I have access to most manufacturers.
