I'd like a new road bike, at the moment I've been riding a fixed gear Lemond Fillmore for a couple of years as a commuting beast, and would like a 'summer-only' geared road bike.
I have £600 as a top-end figure (plus the rest to fit out with new pedals and the like)
I'm leaning towards the Allez Sport, probably due to my enthusiasm for the lower-end model (historically) and the paint-job. I've also spotted the Giant Defy as an alternative, any suggestions?
The catch - Must have pannier mounts for a bit of rambo touring.
I'm just 6 foot tall (183 cm) but I believe (I may be wrong) that I have out of proportion legs (legs are bigger relative to my torso) can you help recommend a size for a Spech Allez:
183 cm Height (6 foot)
90 cm Inseam (Floor to crotch right up to the joint) - 35.4 inches)
