Hi all,

I am being offered a 2013 Tarmac Elite all standard components with the exception of upgraded wheels which are Mavic Carbone SL. Bike has hardly been ridden, Mavics are brand new and the asking price......£1830.

Would I be mad to say no to this???.

    The bike alone would be £1,800 and the wheels would be another £650 ish so it sounds like a good price but the bike is second hand even if it's only been used a little plus it will only be a few weeks before the 2014 bikes are released meaning if you can get it still the 2013 bike should have a healthy discount.

    I think they are due out on July 1st so maybe hold fire until then :)
