What does everyone think of this bike, heard bad things on the forum about the Bontrager SSR wheels. I've had no probs with them.

  • 'tis a very nice bike, hopefully will be getting it at some time in the future. It's the Bontrager SSR road wheels that are crap tyhe MTB wheels are 100% completely different.
    Ribble Gran Fondo
    Focus Black Hills
    Raleigh Chopper
  • Ive got the 8500 and its a cracking bike, very light and fast. I think the 8000 is very similar (same frame) except mine has slightly better components.

    Personally i think it would be a good buy :)
