Don't start saying i'm bringing up irrelevant things then say stupid shit like is buying new things is uncool? I just think saving money on things is cool. Especially when someone is looking for a first road bike, they don't need to spend much money to do so.
My main point was unless he knows what he is doing or finds a steal, he is going to end up spending extra money getting the bike right. Maybe its just me, but I'd rather spend the money up front then worry after I started to ride the bike.
Also i see you talk about fit. Did you read my post? I said he can go to a bike store to find his proper fit. Thats what most people do when they are first buying a bike. Get your size their. Once you find a bike in the correct size, when you go looking for a used bike you know what you are doing. Then you go test it out to check to see how it fits, such as stem length, cranks, ect. Not a hard concept. No need to be an elitist who overpays for new things.
You do realize that parts get adjusted so you can ride long distances, right? People spend hundreds of dollars getting pros to do it for them. Not really necessary on a track bike since they aren't designed to be ridden long distances. No an amateur doesn't need a pro fit but getting a decent fitting bike makes a world of difference.
What bike do you ride? What is it compared to my bomberpro piece of shit? And i don't know why you are judging me on how far i ride my bike. What does that have to do with this argument? Stick to stating facts man, don't start insulting me in order to make your point more valid. I'm not saying you know nothing about bikes or that you only ride 10 blocks or what ever. That just makes you look dumb.
Umm you trolled this thread... twice saying hey guys I got a conversion. Interesting how I look dumb.
Btw tell me how my wheelset is stupid.
(this is justification for me saying I think I can call your bike a piece)
