I have only been cycling for the past 12 months! I bought a Hybrid using my works Cycle sceme. I did not think I was going to enjoy it as much as I have and now I have finished paying for the hybrid, it is time to upgrade!!
I commute 20 miles a day (all road), and try to do a longer ride on a Friday, maybe 30 miles. I have committed to do a coast to coast (170 miles in 2 days), 96km ride, and a 100 mile ride, all in the next 4 months so going from never owned a bike to all this I am planning on being busy!!
So anyway down to business!!
I have narrowed it down to two!
Either 2013 Giant Defy 0 - Great looks, tried and tested brand, good components, a great safe pick!
Planet X RT58-S - Looks amazing imo, stylish, full carbon, good components but not much in the way of reviews ect..
My heat says Planet x and my head says Giant!
Thanks for reading and any comments, tips would be greatly appreciated!
