    You forgot to put a link in your advertisement. Here you go: ... eptor.html

    I can assure you I'm not selling it.... I have been offered a Btwin triban 3 and as Ive not really used this bike other than about 30 or 40 miles in total I want to start riding on a bike that I will keep. I am just about to start training for a few rides in September & October.

    Although having said that a friend will buy it off me if I end up selling it

    I just really want some advice off of experts on a good entry level bike that can cover good miles of 80 90 miles plus.

    Any bike can cover any distance as long as the fit is correct. If you're comfortable on it then it's fine.

    The Triban 3 is a bit nicer, but honestly is more of a lateral move than a step up.

    Thanks I just bought this last year on a whim thinking the spec looked good but I need it to be reliable aswell and I can find no real customer reviews on it so thought about upgrading.

    As long as it fits you there's nothing wrong with the bike you have. It will be reliable if you maintain it properly; just get out there and ride the thing.
