Hi All, I have been commuting for some time and since giving up rugby at the end of last season I have finally decided to get myself a road bike and keep fit by cycling.
I have decided to take the plunge and give myself a budget or around GBP 2,000 and I have got my list down to 4 options (based on Reviews, LBS advice and short test rides)
I intend to use the bike to clock up miles on weekends, evenings and holidays and also to enter a few sportives. I don't intend to get into racing of any kind (but I have said things like this before)
I bought this bike for doing the 3 Peaks last year and what with not getting in this year, i have decided to sell it.
i Recon that other than the peaks it has only done 100 miles or so.
The spec is:
Focus Mares Expert 2010, 55/6cm
Aluminium hydroformed frame with carbon forks
Ultegra STIs and mechs with Ultegra CX70 brakes (These were an £80 upgrade)
Fulcrum racing 7 wheels with Conti CX race tyres (although shown with road tyres on)
FSA cranks bars and stem.
