Hi, new to this site and road riding and looking for some advice. I'm going to be getting a bike through the cycle to work scheme that my employer has just started, however there are 2 restrictions on this particular scheme, 1. bikes must be brought from www.wheelies.co.uk 2. maximum spend allowed is £1000. I've narrowed it down to: Giant SC1 Giant Alliance FCR or Felt F75 I'll be using the bike for general fun riding when i can't get out on the mountain bike trails and commuting to work in the summer, 35 miles each way. I'm 6 foot tall and around 15 stone if it makes any difference, also could someone tell me the difference between a compact and standard and would one suit me more than another. Cheers.
