Just took an upgrade jump and what a bike. Anyone else ride these? Think it's going to be a good investment.

Can't wait to get out there, got a huge ride to Amsterdam this September so I'm hoping this bike will be much more comfortable for long distances.
I'm cycling 300 miles to Amsterdam on 15th -18th September to raise £1,200 for SCOPE. If you would like to sponsor me, please visit my blog http://www.carl2amsterdam.com

    I got one in red last month - a real change to the 12 y.o. HT trek MTB I'd been riding, but tempted by getting a grand off. Had previously been eyeing up a Sirrus, but was persuaded into getting a fabulous road bike instead.

    Pic with commuting additions of race guard, lights and saddle pack:

    I have upgraded from a Roubaix Elite to a pro ( same frame as Expert ) and it's great

    Fast, comfy, and subtle graphics- although it is a 2010 model....ahem.

    Bin the standard tyres though and put schwalbe ultremos on.

    Big difference

    Yes it's not a race guard

    It's something you would put on your apollo MTB. If you're 12.
