Then your situation is urgent and the only possible prescription is for you to order something straight away. Delay should not be countenanced.Sean, I'm bikeless at the moment and have been for about 40 years! Bike used to be a racer with dropped handlebars, but that was then and this is now - the new normal!
My only piece of advice is to go to an independent bike shop, we went to Biketrax in edinburgh, but there are lots, and they live by being able to beat the internet on initial support and after care. A good shop will let you try before you buy, give you loads of advice for your wants and requirements, and give you a full setup and service when you buy. Its really worth going to an independent shop !
