I've been cycling for just over a year now, and put about 2400 miles in on one of these: http://gb.cannondale.com/bikes/07/ce/urban/adventure/model-7AR2.html The only change I have made is slick tyres and a 12-26 cassette. This will remain my commuting rig, since I have fitted a rack and mudguards to it. I now want to venture into the realm of the road bike, to celebrate the lighter evenings, pleasant weather and losing 3 stone in weight. I think I'd like a bike suitable for comfort over long distances, not an out and out racer. So what road bike do you recommend? Budget = £2000 or less! BTW I'm a big bloke - weigh 18.5 stone and 6'4'' tall.
