So many people are buying there carbon wheels and bikes from China? Are they reliable, and high quality? Will this be the future?!?! Cheers :)
I'm looking for a second hand trekking bike. Can't wait for the spring to finally kick in so I can pack my bags & bananas and go cycling through Belgium/Luxemburg.
Keep up the good fruit :)

Hi. Are you going to start on the road or off road - grassed areas/bike paths etc?
Looking to buy my first road bike. I have been looking for a good deal on a used one. I am starting to think I should just buy a new one. What advice would you give?
Buy used - better $$ it means one less bike and gear produced - usually in some Chinese or Taiwanese factory.
Most bike are hardly used compared with the mileage that they will do.
I get tens of thousands of kilometers out of my gear.
Make sure that the bike is the right size for you and if in doubt get someone who knows bikes (a decent shop would do this) to check it out for you. Stuff that wears like bar tape, chains/sprockets isn't that expensive to have replaced.
I totally agree with you except for the price of most used bikes. They dont seem to be great deals. I am fairly new at this but it seems in the past few years technology has changes a lot. So I look at a bike just a few years old in good shape say and it will be half its retail price. If i look at a new bike that is very similar the price is just over half what the used one is. I am still looking of course and hope to find a great deal. Do you think i am right about the technology changing quickly? mostly the price of carbon fiber is dropping fast right? but it seems components have changed too?
