Best Endurance disc bike for £2000?


Über Member
Hi chaps, i currently ride a planet x ec130. I like the bike a lot, but its very much a racy type bike.

I fancy an endurance bike with discs for a winter bike. Not that its just for winter as i have an old winter bike i could use just for really horrible days but also just to have something different, i fancy a more upright position for longer days in the saddle, and discs..well i just want them for a change really, and another bike i suppose...

So whats the best bike currently for £2k (max budget if i can spend closer to 1500 i would prefer)

On my list are Spec Roubaix, Giant defy and cannondale synapse

The future shock on the roubaix looks interesting, wonder what its like in use?

any others i should be lucking at ? and is there much in it with the above or should i just go with what i like the look of.....

Best in what regard?

I ride a defy and love it so I vote Defy . Both giant and specialized offer lifetime frame warrenty which is something to consider ,Cannondale I believe is a 3 year warrenty . All bike at that price range will be good quality so it going to be a person choice . Test rides if you can

Most comfortable i would say, weight and spec are a secondary consideration
In which case the Spa Elan is worth a look. Whatever else you might say about it, it does have reputation for being very comfortable. It is also within your budget. A good long test ride can certainly be had at Spa Cycles.

The Defy in my avatar is an advanced pro 3 and Paul's Cycles still have one a L size in their clearance bikes for £1300.


Something slightly different - though there are a few of them around these parts. Should get it for less than that. I've no idea what is happening for 2019, or when the new one will be coming out.

Spa Cycles Elan (Ti) fits your budget and purposes.

Cheers guys, don't like the look of the elan.. looks like alloy (I know it's ti) I want a carbon frame (I know I didn't say this)

Yes looks is a big factor as well
