Hoping someone can give me some constructive advice on this.
Next year I am cycling from London 2 Paris for charity and I want to start training in the next few weeks.
But first I need to buy my first road bike....
Considering I am a beginner and I have just 4 days to get to Paris with a budget of £250.00 ish
Do I go for steel or aluminium frame?
I am also 5ft 10" which seems to fall between two frame sizes.
In my previous sporting life I played a lot of rugby so I am not the lightest weighing in at around 15stone...does that mean I have to go for a certain type of tyre?
Any help would be great
