The BMC GF02 105 is BMC's take on the endurance/sportive bike category, joining the likes of Specialized and Trek in offering a more comfortable bike which can also be raced. Its carbon big brother – the GF01 – was developed with the northern classics in mind and has been raced there with success under the likes of Thor Hushovd and Taylor Phinney. Evidently, the race pedigree is there, but what remains to be seen is how this translates to the cheaper aluminium framed 02.
I would like to build a road bike from scratch but not mould the frame. My reasons for doing this are to a] get another bike b] learn about the bike & understand all of its parts c] while away any spare time & not have to converse with others d] third point is a joke. Any tips will be gratefully received.
Fuji's Sportif 1.3 does a good job of being a well-rounded all-round winter workhorse. The frame's good, new Sora is good, the wheels are good and the £700 all-in price (even cheaper online) is good. As a first sportive bike, a winter trainer or an all-year commuter it's definitely worth a look.
Large size 58cm road bike in monster green for sale.
Felt F95 2012, only 8 months old, been serviced at christmas. I have all the original documentation for the bike, plus the sevicing receipt.
Very good condition, only used to commute 5 miles daily, and kept inside. The whitet tyres and the white handlebar tape are slightly marked as would be expected.
....this is perfect entry level road bike very light and fast, and the brand is trendy.
The bike is great for being bright and visible on the road, and the wider set handlebars are very comfortable riding position.
Vitus bikes have been part of Chain Reaction Cycles for the last few years and the range now carries four different models with varying kit levels on each. We were impressed with how the Dark Plasma rode, especially the frame when we tested it a couple of years back and on quick inspection the spec sheet for the Vitus Vitesse here doesn't look too shabby either.
Pinnacle's Dolomite didn't receive a whole lot of love when we reviewed it back at the end of 2011 - thanks to an uncomfortable and uninspiring ride. Since then it's been tweaked by James Olsen (designer of Genesis' Equilibrium) for 2013 and it's clear this guy knows his onions as the new one is a belter.
The Argon 18 Gallium Pro's innnovative frame design features an adjustable height head tube and offers a balanced ride of comfort and stiffness. A road racer's delight.
