Just realized that despite getting a quote for a Secteur sport for my work scheme I actually have free choice of how I spend the £1000 voucher. As a beginner road cyclist with a goal to join a 250 odd mile ride over 3 days in September the shop assistant recomended the Secteur Sport or Elite. I am unlikely to do the 25 miles to work by bike so the bike is purely for leisure/fitness rather than regular commuting. I also doubt I'll make a habit of 80 mile day rides except for this annual charity ride, 30 to 40 mile rides at weekends are about the norm for the guys I will ride with. They all have fancy carbon bikes (all more senior and considerably richer than me!) and today were challenging the shop assistants advice to me and suggested I get a sportier bike. So now I'm debating getting the Allez Elite which the shop has for £800 currently. The shop also had a very light Bianchi for £900. I'm quite confused now to ge honest! Is the Allez much different/sportier than the Secteur? Voucher should arrive in next few days so I need to decide and I am committed to this shop.
