hello everyone,have just signed up here. i have been putting money towards a 2010 giant anthem x4 bike (which won't turn up until feb 2010.)but have been having second thoughts/thinking about a road bike instead.the shop (melksham cycle centre)sells bikes from specialized/giant,and i think they can order rocky mountain bikes also.i have been interested in the 2010 tarmac bikes elite/comp (do they both have the same frame?),tricross comp,and from giant 2010 tcr alliance bike £1450. i would like to use it for long distance riding (through all weathers/winter e.t.c.) when i can get some fitness. i can save up to £1900 at a push,but would prefer to pay around £1500. any advice would be most helpful. thank you for your time p.s forgot to add charge bikes,i do like their new steel road bikes!!!
