Hi. Love some advice on a road bike. Looking to spend up to 1200.

Like the look of a caad10 105, bianchi impulso and scott s20 compact.

Will be using it for fitness

I'm not small at 6 5. 15st12lb.

Anyone got any opinions or advice? Cheers

    Search out the new bike threads which there are many and will give you lots of advice. Always the best advice to go to your local bike shop and try for size, feel and fit.

    CAAD 10 is a great bike.

    CAAD 10 gets my vote, second would be the Scott
    Yellow is the new Black.
  • CAAD10 - just had my CAAD9 destroyed in a crash viewtopic.php?f=40042&t=12871349 and I am seeing the CAAD10 as the direct replacement.

    If you like racier geometry you will struggle to find a better frame for the money having ridden a good few thousand miles on it.

    Have a look at the canyon AL, 7 kg bike with ultegra and well rated frame.
