Well my old carrera subway has finally given up the ghost after 5 years of faithful service :(:cry: . Now the big question is what do i get to replace it? have a budget of up to £800 and would like something lighter (knees aint what they used to be lol) , as hills in Edinburgh seem to be steeper now I'm in my mid 50s , able to handle road, and occasional muddy tracks,(some of the roads here fit that description :lol: )will mostly be used for commuting and weekend trips to the borders and surrounding country.Really drawn to the Cannondale Quick Disc 4 but not been able to find any reviews on it ? Would welcome any input and/or suggestions .

    Have a look at the PX London road, they are a really nice frame, comfy yet really direct pedal feel.

    Lowest gear is a little taller than your current lowest so you need to be sure it will suite, a smaller chainring isn't expensive.
    Current steed - Whyte T129, 2013 frame, mongrel Revelations, Giant dropper, Stans S1 wheelset. 12, Magura Trail Sport brakes, 1x11. 12.8Kg
