I am undertaking the classic John O'Groats to Lands End ride. or JOGLE and I am going to buy a new bike as I currently ride a hybrid which just isn't cut out for the task.
Basically has anyone got any suggestions on what to get?
I have £800 to spend and ideally want a road bike including any SPDs that I need to get and the pedals.
I have been following this site over the past couple of months and thought it was time to join in.
I have had an interest in bikes and cycling most of my life. Although mainly offroad, starting on a BMX and then MTBing since the mid-80's.
I had an 'enforced' timeout due to injury and am now returning to 2 wheels.
I am looking for my first road bike and want one that is light enough to feel quick (I need all the help I can get!) and yet comfortable (due to the after effects of the aforementioned injury!)
