    As per thread title, no other requirements other than pure self indulgence, this is definitely the plus one. It's through the cycle to work scheme and was thinking of something you would only bring out over the few months of summer, but I've no real experience of carbon other than it appears to draw a number of negative comments on here. My LOC is for 1K, but I'm happy to add to that for the right machine. Nearly all of my riding is on road, but I do have an old mtb for anything else. Oh, did I mention I like a bargain.:thumbsup:

    Eh, I maybe should have dragged the slider on the maximum down a bit. :shy:

    It really would need to be a better bargain than that.:laugh: Between 2 and 2.5 I reckon.

    Ride and decide

    Do you only cycle to work on dry days? Are there any of those in Scotland...even in summer?

    What material do you want? They have no sub 1k carbon with a reasonable groupset but I think Evans might allow cash addage

    Not particularly carbon but the aluminium looked pretty sparse and I'm well covered for steel. Doesn't need to be from Evans, it was just me being lazy for getti g a few different bikes on the one link.

    Hence the googling around for a new bike.

    Canondale I've heard of them
    Synapse I know someone who rides one, he's really fast. Might be down to his bike

    Funny, I did look at the Cannondale, I have the much cheaper steel version so thought it might be too similar. It is very comfortable though, so may have another look.

    They all look pretty sparse if your limit is a grand and you maybe want Tiagra/105

    Maybe seek out a Giant?

    Or Cube

    Cost you another 10% if C2W I think

    Okay will do. I'm happy to add to the budget for the right machine but I assume that may limit who you can buy from.

    You need a shortlist...seriously

    Your C2W provider will also limit your options
