Ok with my current road bike in need of an upgrade, ie new sti levers required and rear deraileur I would much rather invest in a new bike, possibly through C2W or whatever sheme the business run. Chap at my LBS rides fixed from time to time and says its great, but i`m wondering if it would suit me, its for commuting only. I note the langsters but reckon I would spend a bit more to get better kit and he also recommended a steel frame as well, alot more comfortable in the saddle ! Would carbon fibre frame be better ? My current road bike is an old Giant CFR with the carbon tubes and fork, aluminium lugs etc.
