However, I'm a complete NEWBIE at bikes, and my close friends have no idea about them either, like their value /make/ parts, etc. I was wondering,... show more Hi, so i'm currently a college student and I'm interesting in buying a road bike for next year when i'm going to be living a few blocks off campus.
However, I'm a complete NEWBIE at bikes, and my close friends have no idea about them either, like their value /make/ parts, etc.

I was wondering, are any of the bikes listed on
http://sgvbicycles.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=42&sort=p.price&order=ASC
any good? Like, quality + value wise? I don't know where else to look, on craigslist they all name parts/makes and I have NOO idea what's going on.

Anyways, If those bikes are a bust, what should I be looking for in a good road bike?
Thank you.
