Earlier this year I bought a brand new (but 2006-frame) Condor Leggero and in many ways it's a brilliant bike. But I've had back problems with it ever since. My lower back hurts - sometimes more, sometimes less - after about 20 miles or so and it's really made me a worse cyclist. I'm much more comfortable on my old Langster which is a real shame as the Condor cost a hell of a lot of money.
I'm about 5'9" and it's a 52cm frame. I've tried making every adjustment possible but none seems to make much difference. The Langster is 54cm.
I'm reluctantly selling my Condor Leggero bought only a few months ago as it doesn't really fit me. Although it's a 2006 frame it is brand new and in perfect condition.
It's 52 cm and features Campag Veloce components throughout. Please get in touch or come and it for more pictures and details etc.
It is a beautiful bike and it'll be a dream ride for somebody - just perhaps not me. Originally bought in March for £1800, I'll sell it for £1500 ono.
I'm in Bethnal Green, east London. Email on email@example.com or call 07899 813827
Decathlon’s R700 are ideal for wallet conscious racers or those looking for a high performance training shoes. Compared with the latest generation of shoes dripping in carbon composites, they seem technologically modest with their mesh and faux leather uppers but this is largely forgotten aboard the bike, where the performance outstrips the price.
As it is the Madone range is vast, kicking off with the £1,625 Shimano 105-equipped Madone 4.5 and going right through to the £5,000 6.9 which you can get with either Shimano Dura-Ace or SRAM Red – whichever Sir or Madam prefers – although it’s not available in a women’s specific design.
The Charge Skewer is a super long-distance companion for all you stylish mile eaters out there. In a week in which we've already tested Fixie Inc's Betty Leeds here's another bike that at first sight looks like an exercise in retro-styling but in reality aspires to delivering contemporary levels of performance. The two bikes couldn't be more different in materials and approach but both are competing for the same rider.
Fixie inc's Betty Leeds is a bike for those that dare to be different: you are either going to fall completely for Betty's seductively quirky charms or you're not and there is probably no in between.
