Choosing a new bike, how hard can it be?
New poster but long term lurker, finally got round to registering!
I will be buying myself a new bike this year, I'm due a payout from the insurance for having my bike written off last year, my winter bike is currently doing sterling service but I'm starting to get the new bike itch.
Where do I start?
I want a bike that will be universally admired, one that will float up hills, hammer the descents and be almost self-propelled on the flat.
I want the classic lines of steel, the magic of titanium and the lightweight of carbon.
Not much to ask for is it?
Perhaps I should just buy a Specialized Tarmac instead of the Enigma Esprit I'm currently lusting over..
