Well guys, after a number of posts and advice from in here I've finally ordered a new road bike, my first ever.
It was all down to a Scott CR1 comp or a Ribble Sportive Bianco, and can I just say I visited Ribble twice and they were very very helpful both times, I thought I would mention that as they do seem to get bad press in here.
I was on the verge of ordering a ribble when lo and behold, they stuck their price up by about £50, which made me look again at the Scott, well at the price I found it I just couldnt not get it, ok it's not a full 105 groupset but for a newcomer like me I'm sure it will do the business.
I ended up ordering from Wallis Cycles in Higher Walton near Preston, and the owner there, Martin, was fantastic, I can thoroughly recommend the shop, picking the bike up on saturday and can't wait....

    Well done and welcome to the obsessive madness that is road cycling!
    Where would you be if you fell down a hole?.. Stuck down a hole... in the fog... Stuck down a hole, in the fog, at night... WITH AN OWL!
