I’ve been pondering new bikes for a while and I can’t find the thread I thought I started when I was considering 3 different bikes (Caad12 / Boardman Pro Carbon Disc / Cube Agree c62 Disc).
I went with the Caad 12 (which was my least favourite option at one point due to being Aluminium) - I’ve got a soft spot for Cannondale having owned a Caad9 in the past, and lusting over their mtbs when I was a youth and couldn’t afford one!
I just happened to pop into one of my lbs (mud Dock) when I was still mulling over the options and hey had one in they right size on sale for £1100. Bargain. I paid a little more as I was using a C2W voucher but it was still cheaper than virtually anywhere else I could find at the time.
I did a part ex with the shop for the standard wheels against some MasonxHunt 4 season wheels to save about 500grams - so glad I did- they look lovely and the bike seems to accelerate really well.
