Hello everyone. I am in the process of buying my first ever 'road bike'. I intend to use it for fitness only - no competitions. I have been offered a 2 year old Carrera Vanquish for œ250 which seems to be in good condition with average amount of use. My question is, is this particular bike a decent model for me to buy? I am aware of the correct frame size issue and it seems to be fine for me as regards size. Thanks in advance.
