OK, company has just launched Cycle to work scheme. I work from home, but will not be mentioning that bit!

I already have 6 bikes but it seems mad to not get the discount. So the bike up for replacement is my winter road bike (currently a Trek 1.2)

I want a bike that will take mudguards and a light rack (I already have a full on tourer). So slightly sportier. Strong wheels a big plus. Shimano not Campag (sorry!) Needs to be available from a Cyclescheme retailer.

Oh, and it needs to look nice!

you work from home, have six bikes and the tax payer is going to pay for a seventh?

:tongue:

correct. Great isn't it? I am away on business a lot. I am hoping to wangle a ride to one of our offices at some point. Dusseldorf would be a good ride

Kinesis TK or Kinesis Gran Fondo both frames will accept mudguards although I think the clearance on the GF one is limited.

I think your boss might be able to work that out for himself.

Here for rides.
Go speak to the nice people at Surosa Cycles of Oldham. One of their own brand Audax bikes should float your boat. I just got one on cyclescheme from there and I love it.
