Any views on this.

Wiggle have them for 1200. Wheels look a bit poor but apart from that is there anything else in this price range I should be looking at?

Or maybe I should spend more, but for a first TT bike seems like a bargain.

    I have one. Bargain. Absolute bargain.

    That's what I paid for mine.

    Wheels are fine, although I use a Zipp 404 front and disc covers on the rear.

    I have used those wheels for racing, I was quite surprised.

    I've got an older version - it's fine - the new fork is supposed to be better too.

    Looks a bargain to me - does it come with those deep rim wheels ?

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.

    Unfortunately not. Comes with Alex 220s.

    Thought it looked too good to be true. Still a decent set of training wheels. I saw a discussion on some tri forum about the Seduza and someone who seemed to know his stuff reckoned it was a good bike for the money especially since they changed the fork.

    The only thing about TT bikes is you can often pick up lightly used bikes second hand complete with aero wheels - add a set of decent new wheels to that Seduza and it bumps it up by maybe 50%.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.

    In fact I managed to get one off ebay for a good bit less than £1200 with just 50 miles.

    I guess if I did invest in some wheels, I could put them on the next bike.
