Trying to make my mind up about what is the cheapist bike I am willing to go with. One main factor I am worried about is the shifter. I am used to a LX setup from 1995 so its pretty old but it works darn good and very little movement to get it to shift. Also if you have a nice pic of a Alpine your proud of feel free to post. I like the White one but want to go with the 650 but dont have the money.

In my opinion, shifters are one of the items you can initially go cheap on - like a front derailleur, or chain rings. It's not an expensive upgrade if you decide you can't live with the alivio shifters.

You may also be able to move you LX shifters over if you really want to, but I think you'll be happy with the Alivios.
