Looking a cheapish road bikes to get my fitness going again, nothing expensive and most probably second hand.
Seena few different ones to look at:
Trek 1.2 Road BIke
Giant Defy 2 Road Bike or go for maybe a
Specialized Allez Road Bike, want to get a nice newish one maybe 6 months to 12 months old.

Anyone recommend something else or had one of the above?


  • depends how much you are looking to spend. All the above bikes are good for their money.....but if you're spending £2k you can get more :wink:

    I'll be buying second hand and looking at spending roughly £400 tops.

    Get the one that's the right size. If you can choose beyond that, get the one in the best condition :)
