Im a new to the forum and new to taking road riding serious, I do a lot of MTB XC but have been doing a lot more road riding recently on my decathlon Triban 3 but now I want something a little more suited to beating my mates and getting up the STRAVA leader board the only thing is I don't really know much about road bikes!
That said I have decided (based on what friends have and say) I need a carbon sub 8Kg bike with Udi2 and decent wheels, I have a 3k max budget and im looking for a decent bike that's great VFM, im happy with 2nd hand, ex demo, 2012 spec
This is my short list to date...
Felt AR3 Di2 __ 7.89kg __ MAVIC Cosmic Elite __ £2700
Ultimate CF SLX Di2 __ 7.05kg __ Ksyrium Elites __ £2900
Cannondale supersix di2 __ NAkg __ Ksyrium Elites __ £2400
Colnago CLX 3.0 Di2 __ NAkg __ Shimano WH-RS30A __ £2899
Vitus Vitesse VRi Di2 __ NAkg __ Ksyrium Elites __ £2519
Fuji SST 2.0 Di2 __ 7.7kg __ DT swiss Oval 535 __ £2319
if you where me which would you choose and why ?
Are there any lemons and why ?
note: Im 5.7' 72kg ive been riding up to 50 miles a session at the moment but want to double that (I did 80 at the weekend on my £300 Triban 3) for longer rides but still want something focused for shorter sprints.
cheers in advance
