  • For £600 with full Tiagra and FSA bars and stem, I'd say it's a decent price. The Tiagra groupset is around £300 alone. If you like it, buy it :)

    Yes decent spec for the price for a new bike.

    It's only good if it fits. The spec is decent for the price but you ate better with a 300 bike that fits than a 600 that doesn't.
    Life isnt like a box of chocolates, its like a bag of pic n mix.

    Thanks Simonhead
    I could not agree more - I am going to go and see it at the weekend (if I haven't fallen in love and bought something else before then :-)

    cheers
