For my first serious road bike I have gone for Ribble Sportive Bianco with 105. Chose over a trek Domane 2.3. Felt that at £1,200 the Domane was compromising on spec and the Sportive was working out cheaper with full 105 group and carbon!

Right choice???

IHMO, yes

I've been very pleased with both of my Ribbles - my R872 has done close on 4000km since July with zero problems.

I got a Bianco for Christmas, first "serious" bike. Loving it. I did pay extra and get a Camapg Veloce groupset.
