Hi folks! Some kn*b stole my Btwin Triban 3 in London last week. It was a lovely bike. I don't know a great deal about road or racer bikes but I'm looking for general ballpark recommendations for road bike recs for under £500. The triban had an aluminium frame and carbon forks so was pretty light and I'd love to get something similarly light (or lighter!). I use my bike for getting to work and the odd big cycle (did Brighton-London last year). If poss, I'm looking for an upgrade on the Triban.
At the moment I'm thinking about a Specialized Allez of some kind. But really open as I'm NOT an expert! Just trying to get a picture of what I should be looking for with that kind of money. Thank you all so much! Really miss having a bike 😅
