Only been biking since May last yr. I'm currently riding a second hand GT Aggressor Mtb on the road and commuting 85 miles a week.
What I'm looking to do is get a road bike for speed and hopefully more enjoyment out of cycling on the road.
Thinking of getting a road bike through the ride2work scheme which we can do through Evans cycles.
would I really notice any difference between something like;
as opposed to something like either a carrera at £300 ish out my own pocket from halfords or a cannondale from Evans at £649, having never riding a road bike before?
Need some help as I have to say I do fancy the specialized but would I actually need to spend that much? The roads I bike on aren't the best but not bad.
