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)
Barely used Custom Trek Madone OCLV red carbon 6.9 Pro H1 56'
Has been sat around for months unused due to an operation.
A frame of the same quality by Trek now costs over £3000 So this is a chance to get a serious bit of kit at a fantastic price.
Frame- 56' H1 geometry 6.9 pro, done appx 800 miles!
Wheels- Mavic Ksyrium superlight premium sl, w/Mavic Ti skewers (done 200 miles!), Schwalbe ultremo tyres (new)
Groupset- Full Shimano ultegra 6700 (carbon levers, etc..)
