I am after changing my current 10 yr old hybrid for something a little quicker for my 20 mile tarmac daily commute. Audax bikes seem to fit the bill but are very expensive, no doubt because they are for a minority market. My LBS doesn't stock them so I would have to probably buy online. Can anyone recommend something suitable for a £500 budget. My wish list is Tyres upto 700 x 28c Full mudguards Braze ons for panniers Dependable group set Drop handlebars No suspension As a guide for comparison, the nearest to this wish list I have seen is probably the Ribble winter trainer on a Sora groupset. Any others worth considering?
