Hi All

A little advice / opinion if you will

Having commuted for the last year on a cheap decathlon mountain bike (which to be fair has served me well), or my Cube road bike, I'm looking to purchase a new commuter / winter bike the following are being considered

Ribble Audax/winter trainer (£696 with Conti GP4 seasons and admin fee)

Focus Mares 4.0 (about £750)

I have to admit to being a little put off by the £65 "admin fee" Ribble charge, although all of my other dealings with them have been great

I'm going to cross post this in the Commuting General forum aswell

Any thoughts ??
