      I have recently just began getting serious into biking, and I am not training for the MS150. I looked at a couple of bikes, but I liked this one the best. It is very light and comfortable... even for short people like me! I got the 44 cm. It is a really nice bike for a beginner. I recommend it to anyone!

        I used it for my first Tri and it was between the Dolce Elite and the Dolce and I'm so glad I went for the Elite! Especially when riding in the horns its easier to shift with the Elite.

          For the price, this is a great bike! I would definitely recommend it to someone who is just getting into road bikes.

            Comments:

            The Dolce's a great entry level road bike for women. Her geometry is tuned specifically for a female rider, and once you try a womens specific bike, you'll never go back. This bike is especially great if you've never ridden a road bike before. She has an extra set of brake levers, meaning you can use whichever are more comfortable for you. You get to sit pretty upright on it, and the seat's really comfortable for a long distance. You'll definately get your miles out of this bike. If you expect to ride avidly, however, you may want to look at an upgraded model. Better to invest in the higher end in the beginning than to wish you'd done so, later.
