Will this bike help you in stepping up a level? Why dont you sell your bike, go for this new one(which looks good btw), and then start looking out for a new project you can slowly build up as and when funds allow? best of both worlds?

I'd buy a second hand modern bike - you know the kind of thing late 06 early 07 model, light use. You lose so much money in the first year, let someone else take the hit. You can afford both this way if you are smart and find the right bike for the right money.

He's trade. It's only the normal consumer takes the big depreciation hit on bike stuff.

He'll be getting the Giant for less than it's used price in a year. At least I hope so!
