First Road Bike Help

Postby Ketchy » Thu Nov 07, 2013 21:09 pm

Hey guys I'm really struggling finding my first road bike i have a budget of about £600 would push to £700 if it was worth it. I'm going to be using the bike for commuting and fitness mainly. The current bikes I'm looking at are:

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/felt-f85-tiagra ... exclusive/

Any other suggestions welcome I'm also thinking for getting the 2014 secteur for comfort.

The mekk pinerrolo don't have my size but the btwin looks nice but wouldn't i be getting a better deal with the felt for example with the sale?

But consider the fit if you can, comfort and liking the look of the bike counts for more than a bargain.
But I do like the felt.

I don't know any good local bike shops to get fitted plus I'm guessing it would cost more. Pretty neutral about the looks only bike i really like the look are the blue bianchi's

Bump Hi guys I went out and found some local bike shops and I landed on two bikes that i liked the Merida Ride 93 for £800 and the Focus Culebro SL 2.0 £800 they both fit pretty nice and was just wondering about other peoples opinions on these two bikes.

Have rode the Merida Ride Lite 94 quite a lot (brothers winter bike). I'm guessing this is the same frame but with Tiagra rather than 105 groupset.
The merida is a very good ride, all depends on what geometry suits you best. I actually found the Merida more relaxed than my Domane.
The focus looks good though and i know a lot of people who are very happy with their carbon focus rides.

Have a look at Sab on the Planet X site. They look really nice. What they ride like, I have no idea.
