Hi, i am looking for my first road bike and cant decide between the boardman road sport 2014 and the vitus razor 2014, the vitus weighs much less at 9.8kg but there are no reviews of it anywhere on the internet which is worrying considering it looks like a decent bike, does anyone know anything about the vitus or have any comment on the boardman road sport ? (I can get a discount on the boardman which means both bikes cost the same)

Thanks

For the price, I'm sure they'd both be equally capable first bikes. Others to consider include the Genesis Volant for £525 at Rutland Cycling http://www.rutlandcycling.com/159678/products/genesis-volant-10-2014-roa...
and some of the bikes from Edinburgh Bicycle Coop, http://www.edinburghbicycle.com/ (I'm quite tempted by the cyclocross they do for around that price, tbh)

Thanks, that is a good bike for the price but the two i am looking at are around the £375 mark and I wouldn't want to spend much more than that

Did you get anywhere with the Vitus? It looks a good deal to me but like yourself I can't really find any reviews although it does get a mention here
