I'm looking to spend up to £500 on a new winter/commuter road bike. Currently torn between buying new or buying second hand and potentially getting a better frame but with the knowledge some components might need replaced pretty early on. Mudguard eyelets would be a bonus but not essential.
Currently leaning towards new Giant Contend 2 2019 at the minute - https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-Contend-2-2019-Road-Bike_200517.htm
Also considered Specialised Allez, Cube Attain, Ribble Audax, Pinnacle Laterite 2 2020.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
