    I may be wrong but if you need to ask how much a dura-ace equipped bike will cost, you may not be best placed to make the optimum use of it. Why do you want dura-ace? Are you racing beyond the capabilities of 105 for example?

    Oh and :welcome:

    Have a look at Rose bikes they will be about the cheapest, I would guess £2.5k +

    Of course I'm not riding beyond 105's but I have about £2500 from an inheritance that must be spent on a bike and want the mutts for it. Any suggestions as the Internet is quoting over this for full carbon etc etc
     
  6. but in your first post, you asked "how much will I need to save?" or am I missing something..? If you want to spend more than £2.5k then save another £1500 on top and the world is your oyster...

    Ok that kind of makes sense I suppose.

    Personally I'd go for what I've got which is a titanium frame with SRAM Red on it.

    No, red highlights wouldn't be my first choice either,but it is fully configurable.

    Yep different wheels and tyres and it looks a whole lot better. Still can't say I'm overly sold though.

    It's the red Cosmic decals, coloured tyres (I hate coloured tyres) and red stem that kill that bikes appearance, if the standard yellow decals were present, non-coloured tyres and a black stem it would look much better.

    My grandad died who was a keen cyclist as indeed I am, he left me £2500 specifically for a road bike. I want the best that I can get and then start riding again not that I have stopped but stopped taking it to seriously. I have been looking at the Forme elite but as they are new aren't sure.
