    Hi all,

    I'm aiming to get a carbon bike soon and have whittled my choices down to either the 2013 Sepcialized Tarmac Sport (£1,500) or the Cube Agree GTC (£1,259). Both come with Shmano 105, both look good. What do you think is the better bike / option? I am tempted towards the Specialized. Do Tarmacs have a good reputation and will this bike be worth he extra £250 over the Cube?

    Cube Agree: http://www.leisurelakesbikes.com/product/cubeagreegtcracingroadbike2012.aspx?&id=17268

    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. The Tarmac has a good rep as a high performance frame, capable of being raced at a high level. I ride one and would recommend them. I don't have any experience of Cube, but I'm sure they're ok too..

    as a total beginner I'm inclined to vote for the Cube simply because it looks the part
