£1800 for a bike and what to buy????
I'm completely new to this site so be gentle with me. I own a 2007 Cannondale Synapse and want to upgrade to a carbon bike. The choice seems bewildering and having spoke to a number of people who work in bike shops etc I'm no nearer choosing. Perhaps that is part of the problem, at this point is there little to choose?
If it helps, I'm 5'10, weigh around 90kg, currently on a 53cm frame. Do mainly rides on a Sunday, 45 - 80 miles with an occasional longer trip. Comfort is key, I don't race I just love cycling. These are the bikes I've seen so far:
Cannondale Supersix 105
Kuota Kharma Evo
Planet X Carbon Pro
Cube Agree GTC
Felt F5 105
Focus Izalco 3.0
Basso Laguna 105
There are probably others I've missed, I'd like some unbiased advice, this will probably be a purchase that will last me some years. I have tried a few of these and liked them all. 105 is minimum groupset, that's about the only restriction.
Thanks for reading this, hope there's a wealth of expertise out there.
