i bought a specialized centrum a few months ago it has done less than 20 miles, my ideas have now changed and im after a geared road bike such as specialized allez,
so.. does anybody know if there are any bike shops in the south west which will take a part exchange with my centrum for a road bike becuase i havent got enough room for both.

    You'll get a better price selling privately, then also have some haggling power when you buy the Allez.

    BTW, I can highly recommend Certini in Saltash (nr Plymouth) if you'll travel that far to get the new one.

    Definitely sell second hand, you'll always get a better deal with cash in your hand. Don't buy unless you get a discount or free gear thrown in. Use the credit crunch to your advantage
