Scott's CX Comp comes in just over that magic £1,000 price barrier but if you shop around you can find these being sold for 'Cycle to Work' scheme friendly prices. Mind you, while it shares the innate versatility of all cross bikes and it is not without the odd commuter-friendly eyelet, this is bike aimed squarely at the hurly burly of the race circuit rather than the ride to work.
The Scott Speedster S30 is an efficient road bike that you should definitely consider if you're after a sub-£1,000 setup.
The price band just below £1,000 is a competitive one. The manufacturers know a lot of people can justify spending £900-and-something on a bike but over £1,000? It's a psychological hurdle, a step too far.
Hi all. My first 70.3 is coming up later this year, and I'm now giving a lot of thought to investing in a tri bike for increased comfort over the distance and hopefully a slight time advantage+the possibility of slightly fresher legs off the bike. I'm looking at three main offerings - a Trek Speed Concept in the 7.0 or possibly up to 7.5 range, one of the new Shiv models, or a Scott Plasma. I've read that the Scott bikes tend to be a lot easier to travel with and work on.
