So our accouts bod has decided he wants a bike (a Cannondale Bad Boy!?), which means he can be bothered to set up the scheme. I have two weeks before launch to decide what to get - which is hugely exciting and I don't want it to be over.

I already have a Trek 1.2 which I am happy with and commute on. I have a hybrid that i never use anymore. So what to get!?

I am torn between a fixie commuting steed or the most expensive road bike I can manage (£1k). I do a bit of weekend cycling but at the max it is 30 miles.

I was also wondering if i could get shoes, clothes and pedals etc?

No doubt this subject has been doen to death, but what of my bike choice? I have to use Evans...

    Pour the entire cycle scheme into a Carbon Fibre bike.

    Use your salary to buy pedals, shoes and clothes.

    Take a trip down to DeVer for the bike, they'll set you right.

    A true scalp is not only overtaking someone but leaving them stopped at a set of lights. As you, who have clearly beaten the lights, pummels nothing but the open air ahead. ~ 'DondaddyD'. Player of the Unspoken Game

    I thought you would say that! But you know I have this thing about me 'wasting' a carbon fibre bike on myself. However, I could use the Trek for commuting and keep the nice bike for the weekend.

    I am tied to Evans.

    Yes, under C2W you can get bike plus associated clothing and bits and pieces. That includes tools... Just sayin'...
