I have the chance to buy a new one for £2000.
What are your views on this bike I have heard of a few frames cracking,
This is a upgrade from my current bike and I love the look of them but are they great bikes? I mainly do 50-70 mile weekend rides with the occasional 100 miler will this be ok for that sort of riding?

    Love mine. Can't say I've heard of any frames cracking. The white paint used to fade/go creamy over time but that appears to have been addressed now.

    Depending on who you're buying from I'd push for a bigger discount [you might not get it but worth asking]. I paid not too much more than that a year ago, before it was replaced with the XP [albeit at a lower spec]...
