Getting back into road riding - bike recommendations?

    hi all, my first post here.

    Haven't ridden on road since my late teens (36 now, do a fair bit of mountain biking) and looking to get back into it for daily commute during decent weather (12 mile round trip) and also look at joining a local club.

    So been looking at a lightweight road bike and the Felt range are so far top of my list with either F75 or maybe stretch to the f4. Just wondering if anyone can offer an opinion on these or suggest an alternative?

    Thanks

    Neil

    Hi neil...
    The only thing i notice is the F75 has a Shimano R500 A wheelset on it.
    The R500 is a budget wheelset, although i dont know what the A suffix represents...perhaps a better or later version ?

    On a bike thats costing (i assume) £750 - £1000...i'd expect a bit better wheelset than that.
