We have the Bike2Work scheme running at work and I've decided to get a new bike and sell my old Giant TCR. Now - looking at bikes up to a thousand pounds. My criteria: * Alu frame + carbon fork (I already have a carbon framed bike) * 105 or better groupset * Prefer compact frame geometry.....but open to suggestion. So - looking for inspiration and welcome your thoughts. So far, the short list is: * Giant TCR Alliance Zero (blue + white) * Specialized Allez Elite (the 2007 vsn had 105 g'set) * Scott Speedster S10 Question for anyone who's done the B2W - did Halfrauds manage to get a deal on last years models? Did Halfrauds manage to get the latest models at a cheaper rate or do they just sell you at list price? The Scott and Giant above are more then £1,000 but I'm banking on being able to get last years model or for them to get some discount!
