No point it was just a question? As mulling over the two Anthem you can get on interest free and I could pick up a good condition spec camber carbon comp for £800

Anthem - I prefer the way it pedals and the way it rides

....so I bought one.

.....so I might be a tad biased. The Speccy was ok, but it just didn't quite do it for me.
How would I write my own epitaph? With a crayon - I'm not allowed anything I can sharpen to a sustainable point.

1 year old bike at roughly a third of the new price, I would say so.
