I'm definitely buying a road bike in the next couple of weeks, have looked at all sorts but this is the short list:

Bike is for fitness rides, commuting and hopefully a sportive next year. I had a road bike previously so I have a knowledge for fit and TT length. Been to the local shops but nothing that catches the eye and Certainally no deals on the go.. : (

So if it was your cash, what would you do? I really can't decide and I'm just going round in circles...

Thanks.

    If it was my money I'd go for the Giant
  • Thanks mate,

    Seems to be the consensus elsewhere aswell. Certainally hard to turn down at that price.. Even if the BMC looks frikkin awesome.. In my opinion of course!

    Giant, my mate bought the TCR 2 as his first bike last year for a similar price, it's a cracking bike for the cash and I couldn't really fault it but if I had to pick a weak point - it's the wheels but then again it always is.
  • Yeah wheels is always where they save a few quid but that's no biggie for me to be honest. Thanks so far guys.

    Giant. 105 at that price is a bonus. Cheap BMC's feel cheap.
