need some advice on buying a road bike, It's mainly to travel on cycle paths to work and back (approx 20 miles) and going for a good spin at weekends again, mainly cycle paths, back roads etc - planning on doing approx 40-50 miles..my budget is about £500-£600 and was originally looking at a road bike- Raleigh Airlite 400. been to a few cycle shops and their advice is to buy a cyclocross bike and I've been offered a Raleigh Airlite U6 cyclocross bike for £500 approx (normally £699) plus some extras. I've checked various internet sights and this seems a pretty good deal, but can anyone suggest if I should go for this one or is there anything better, e.g dawes edge- x etc
any suggestions folks
cheers
andy
