This is a beginner question, but about gear, so I wasn't sure which forum would be the best.
So, did my first sprint recently on essentially a mountain bike. Definitely thinking I could be less pitifully slow on something lighter.
Any suggestions for shorties? I'd love to do used if possible, more bang for the buck and all that.
I tried out a Giant OCR 1w at the bike shop and really liked that. Borrowed a friend's Trek. Seemed like a nice ride, but the frame is way big for me on this particular bike (54 cm, I think?). From my decidedly limited bike experience, I think I might benefit from a women specific design, given my height.
Planning to stick with the sprint distance, as that is plenty hard core for me.
Appreciate any suggestions for this newbie!
