got a choice of three bikes to choose from.. got around £500 max to spend.

Found the following:

2012/13 Boardman Race Road Bike

2009 Specialized Allez Elite

2013 Trek 1.2 Compact


The bike will be used primarily for commuting and a 30 mile ride over the weekend. This is to be my 2nd road bike having had a claud butler san remo. What would you recommend?

    Specialized sold so out of the question.

    Viewing the boardman tonight. It's a large frame and I'm 5'9" so fingers crossed it fits.

    Trek slightly more at closer to £600 but it's literally brand new.

    Ah decisions....

    It won't.

    I am 5'11" and I am a medium frame.

    censored . if that bike is out then it's down to the Trek and a Felt F95. Unless something else comes up on ebay soon, I may be buying new!

    Agree.
    I'm 5'8" and have medium, it's too big but workable; a large would be out of the question.
