Daniel Clarke: Lisa’s bike vs. my bike

How do you choose the bike that's right for you? Daniel compares his experience finding the perfect bike to his girlfriend, Lisa's.

A couple weeks ago Lisa got a new bike.  I decided I’d compare how I went about buying my bike, a used 2010 Cervelo P4 bought through Kijiji, to Lisa’s bike, a brand new Felt IA10 bought from D’Ornellas bike shop.  I look for older bikes that are great value, while a proven bike from a reputable brand with support from an established local bike shop is the priority for Lisa.
