I'm quite interested in buying a Canyon Roadlite 6.0. I was just wondering if anyone has bought one. What they think of it? I'm 6ft tall , so I presume I would be looking at getting a 58cm frame?

I have read a lot of good reviews on the bike. Just to put a spanner in the works. I have seen the Sensa Romagna Special. Both bikes are similar price. I don't really want to go over a grand. It is not being bought on a c2w scheme either.

I'm a novice rider, and wanting to get back into road cycling. I've done a lot of off road stuff, but I would like a road bike! You can never have to many bikes!!

Any advice gratefully received.

    Both look excellent bikes. One advantage of the Sensa bike though is that you could actually go and test ride it at Merlin cycles. Might be worth a trip as it's not too far from you.

    2 Riding pals own them. They are uber light and look amazing. Get black if you do get one, as the guys I mention, one has a white one and the other the black. The black look so much nicer.

    Great bike, I'm 6'5" and have a 62cm. I just measured it against other bikes that I was able to try out. It's a great bike and you so if you're comfortable with the sizing then it's a no brainer

    I have the Sensa Romagna special.

    Is a great bike. Very very fast. Certainly not relaxed though!

    you have asked the exact question i was wondering!!! i too am 6ft and prefer the relaxed riding position this will give, not common bikes round here but my only worry is building the thing!!

    are they easy to assemble?

    for the money, dont think you touch it, full 105 shifting plus its light
