Re: Road Bike buying advice
I'm currently in the process of trying to choose a road bike.
I used to ride MTB, and now have taken the decision to get fit again!
My budget is £1000, (on the cycle2Work scheme) and i'm becoming increasingly confused on what's good/bad and what to avoid!
I would really appreciate some help/advice on what to get.
Once i've gotten used to riding a road bike again, i will be (hopefully) putting a lot of miles on the bike, so want to make sure that i get it right first time (choosing the bike).
I have looked at:
Cube Peleton Race
Scott Speedster 20
I've been advised by friends to avoid Sora, make sure the bike has carbon forks, and try to get the best kit (frame aside) that you can.
But, because i know so little (other than, that looks nice!) i have no idea if what i'm liking, is actually any good.
I don't care about bike envy, or the kudos it'll generate (or not) just want to make a sound purchase and investment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
