I am interested in buying my first serious road bike. I got a budget of 1000 pounds max. I am interested in
Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Veloce
I am planning to do 1-2 days of training per week solo and when i get feet I am gonna follow more experienced groups of riders 70-100 kmh. Maybe some amateur racing if I feel like it.
Which of the two bikes is better for it. Bianchi has an issue of wheels from what I read over the net. A nice design, but I do not know if the frame can be fast if I change wheels and tyres
On the other hand Boardman is not Bianchi but it has excellent reviews. Moreover, I am gonna order the Boardman without being able to test it since I do not live in the UK.
What do you suggest? Anyone who has experience of both bikes?
