of all of those, i think the Bama is the best bet to start with, mainly b/c of the full Chromoly frame...in the beginning you want to go with as much Chromoly as you can afford, especially in the "structure" of the bike - the frame, fork, cranks and pedal axels. If my memory serves me, you can find the Bama for around $375-400 (or whatever that would be in Kroner(?) ) The other parts can be replaced as you need to, but you want a solid structure, and solid wheels

others opinions may vary, but this is my thoughts

That sounds pretty sweet. Like I said, the frame and fork - if I remember - are good. You can upgrade other parts as they blow, or as you see fit. This bike was 3rd on my list behind the Verde Luxe and the WeThePeople Trust...
