too much bike for a beginner cyclist?
Started riding after 30+ years on a cheap MTB from a certain high street shop and have realised I actually prefer being on the road so started to look for a replacement.
Keep getting drawn towards the B'twin bike's as they seem to be excellent value for money.
If I went for the cheaper 540 I'll also be looking to changing to a Compact 50/34 vs the 52/36 it comes with and possibly the tyres. I can (just about) stretch to the 720 without needing to change much of anything. Just add mudguards (assuming it can take them?).
Are there better options for a beginner cyclist? Or is it a fairly safe bet?
Should add I'm massively unfit (though it's getting better - slowly) and a little overweight (only a little)
Thanks for any help/advice.
