Hi everyone.
Ive been mountain biking for a number of years now and I've finally decided to get myself a raod bike.

Entry level should be more than enough to get me stated.( i Hope) I'll be doing around 70-80 mile I week which I currently do on my mountain bike to get into work a few days a week.

Anyway this is were I'm hoping your guys come in?

The bike that I've been looking at is. ... e-ec041249

Is this a good starting point?

Many thanks in advance people.

    The description says carbon frame (unlikely for that price) but then the specs say it's 'alloy frame'.
  • Yeah noticed that myself mark. It's just carbon forks. (sadly).
    What do you think of the overall spec? Does it seem decent enough for the price ?

    I think if you can stretch to the extra few quid this Moda is better ... e-ec043962
    10 speed Tiagra gives a nice clean front end and more gears than the Sora
