I'm looking to purchase my first road bike and I want to spend $2500
or less for the complete bike.  I don't want a hybid style bike.  I
want a versatile bike for fitness (I
need to loose some weight), training for events (centuries, etc),
and possibly road racing in the future.  I know much depends on
personal preference when choosing a bike, but it would help to have
the field narrowed down a bit.

Specialized Tarmac.
