My first road bike, arrived today :) size 60 (xxl).
Put it together then it started to rain :( so only managed a quick 6 mile blast...

    Very nice bike, thanks for the pic. Can't wait for mine to arrive, bit of a bargain at £600. I have a set of nearly new Shimano RS10 wheels to go on mine. The supplied wheels will be going on my winter bike. The frame is described as powder coated. Does it have a glossy finish to it like a painted frame?

    What tyres are they?

    And, how much clearance is there for mudguards?

    Already done :D

    Yes the bike has got a very glossy finish, (which i like).
    Tyres are different to those listed, there are continental ultra sports 700x23c
    Not tried fitting guards to a road bike before, so not sure if there will be enough- i'll try and take a piccey for you later to make a judgment :)
    Absolute steal for the money 8)
