More in need of counselling than anything else. Cycle to work scheme is about to be offered and for the last few weeks I have been looking at specific models. Started with the Trek 1.5, then moved upwards to a Trek 1.7, Giant SCR 1.0 and a Specialized Alle Elite. Now I am being tempted by a Focus Cayo! So gone from £600 up to £1,000 and above. Ouch. My intention is to commute to work with a 75 minute route and take a direct 20 minute route back. This has worked well for the last couple of months on a 20 year old Raleigh. Being competitive by nature I can feel that in a few months, with improving fitness on a new bike I will want to have a go at a few club outings, longer runs and a sportive. So should I grasp for the Focus Cayo, or be content with something like a Giant SCR1? I wonder if I am being trapped by the marketing of all carbon! What do you think?
