    If I gave you £700 for a road bike which would you buy?

    I've been looking at treks and specialized allez but any other suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks
    Kel

    Or if you fancy an adventure into fixed/singlespeed, £700 will get you a Condor Pista with £1 left for an ice-cream.

    You probably don't though so I'd say the Tricross seems popular at that price point. Apparently it can be hard to get hold of.

    There are many good bikes at that price as you can see from the above lists. However the one that looks the best to you is the one to get!!!

    If you gave me £700 for a road bike i'd buy a Macbook.

    There's a lot of choice of good bikes at that price, I'd probably choose based on what my local dealer(s) had that I could try out. And I'd find out when they are getting their 2008 bikes in- bargains galore after that for last year's bikes (usually around mid to end August at my LBS)

    Someting with a full carbon frame, forks, seatpost, not bothered about about wheels and groupset as for 700 you get rubbish anyway.

    So I would get a good frame and build on it cos its 100% sure that your allways going to spend more cash on your bike...do you ken that big man :eek:
