opinions on a few bikes for newbie
I'm just getting back into cycling following a fairly long break... My current ride is an old 501 framed pro sport... So I'm now looking to upgrade/update. I know the bike you pick should be personal fit/preference but I'd value any thoughts people have on the bikes I've currently got on my shortlist...
I've tried the following for size/fit and tbh they all feel good to me:
Orbea aqua ts23 - local shop £499
Giant defy 5 - local shop £499
Merida ride 90 - local shop £540
Others on my list that I can't try due to a lack of local deler but look work
Felt f95 sora - on offer currently for £399
Triban 5/500 sora - on offer for 450
Personally the orbea is currently topping my list.. Mainly due to the deal and the test ride felt good.. But I know very little about the make and don't know anyone who has one...
Thoughts please.. Cheers Jim
