    A work colleague has been offered one of these at a "special price" i.e £ 1,087 including a proper fitting:

    By the looks of it, it is a 2007 model. It looks to have a good standard of equipment on it and appears good value.

    He is a newcomer to Road biking but not to cycling in general - he already has a nice mountainbike.

    My question is, are there any owners out there who could give an opinion on the bike? Also, would it be suitable as a first road bike or are there other alternatives at the same price point?

    I have my own opinions, but would rather not bias the replies.

    Thanks for your help.

    Gary.

    I don't know this particular bike, so can't comment on it directly.

    The spec looks OK, but nothing special, and I would say the same for the price. However if your friend is getting a proper bike fitting session, and they will properly set up the bike following the bike fitting, that is definitely a plus point.

    More generally I would say that if your friend is new to road biking he should try out a number of different bikes, and not just go for the one that has a £200 discount.

    Also, unless he's got plenty of money, maybe he should think about getting a cheaper non-carbon bike to begin with. Once he's got some experience of riding a road bike he might well change his views on what his "ultimate" bike should be.
