don't get a 2nd hand bike until you know what you're doing. as in clothing, fit is the most important thing. try to find a good shop that you can imagine yourself spending some time in, and where you get along with the staff and mechanics. they will fit you for a bike, and answer other questions regarding sizing, materials, clothing (you will need to buy shoes, helmet and some decent outfits), and gear.these days you can get a very nice, light road bike for € 1000.
nothing per se wrong, but intense has no history in making bikes like that. it will also be likely over-priced. if someone were to force me to get a fully rigid it would have to be be titanium, and from a maker with history in ti bikes.

ah, thanks for the tip - i like the term "mileage run", it kind of implies a physical activity.
has anybody here ever booked an end-of-year long-haul flight just to avoid missing out on star alliance gold? i'm seriously thinking of booking a day-trip to singapore or something in december (and by day i mean probably around 3 days in all), but i can't shake the feeling that this is an outrageous thing to do.
