Decisions decisions!

Postby rodgie » Tue Feb 19, 2013 18:27 pm

I have been commuting for the last 5 months on my GT Backwoods mountain bike (must be getting on 15 year old), 25 mile round trip and its served me well but seems hard work. I have fitted Continental Travel Contact tyres and a rack, but they are the only modifications. And the front mech is being replaced now. Anywho, been looking at various bikes to cut down the 1 hour commute, was looking at max £600. Today at the LBS thye have a 2012 Forme Calver X (canti version) in my size for £700. Its seems a good deal...

Ive looked at the boardman hybrid and race, been into edinburgh cycles and liked the look of the Revolution Audax there, and have seen Kona Honky Tonks for £650. I want to make my commute a bit easier (tired a=doing it 4 days a week...weak I know), and in the future would like some light touring and try a triathlon or 2. The cyclocross races look very fun but I have to admit that im not fussed about trying one in the near future.

Any help or experience with the Forme bikes? I cant see many reviews about them.
