Looking to get this as my first road bike, what size for someone who is 6ft?
Thanks

Crikey people spend big money on bikes these days - and a first road bike. I have been cycling on road bikes for years and years (about 29 years) and only had cheap bikes and they have all served me well. Just sold a Carrrera (which I bought second hand for £110) and its been a brilliant bike and done many miles on it. Bought a new Carrera (£220) and its a brilliant bike.... lovely to ride and its an alloy frame. Never needed disk brakes and all the components work just as they should. Not saying pricey bikes are bad but people seem to go nuts and buy the most expensive they can possibly get when maybe a cheaper bike would do them great.... especially a first bike

Any tips on what I can change to make this a great entry level bike. Maybe a new frame, forks, pedals or wheels for a start.

and the groupset, probably want to switch the handlebars and saddle whilst you are at it,

Don't put people off - first bike buyers spending far too much are a great source of cheap, immaculate second-hand bikes on eBay. I say buy two just in case you really like cycling.

lovely bike! Excellent specs!

If you're in the market for a sub £1000 alloy road bike, this deal looks to be unbeatable.

I got the CAAD 8 105 for £700 from Rutland Cycles a couple of weeks ago and while I'm happy with my purchase, I'd have bought this bike if it had been available at the time.

Don't forget cashback of 2.0 / 2.1 % at Quidco / TopCashBack.

I can't find cashback anywhere for Hargreaves on Quidco or TCB.

My apologies. You're right. I was getting mixed up with Hargroves Cycles.

Yeah I switched all those things and ended up with a great bike, I gave the other bike to charity as I wouldn't be seen dead on it.

I thought of them, but I wanted to make sure I was on the right path X) on here first. I know this is the place for bike experts, so I thought I would let them flourish. Cheers.

fair enough, i would definitely consider changing the inner tubes though, probably not the tyres.

Yes great deal
Does anyone know if the brakes are any good? I know the 105 are hydraulic but couldn't see from the description on the link but guess they are cable disc brakes.

There's mention of these brakes in a Cycling Weekly review of the Cannondale CAADX Tiagra Cyclo cross bike:

'The disc brakes are from US manufacturer Promax, and do a reasonable job with plenty of power, although they are slightly spongy, as lower-end cable disc brakes usually are'.

So for a bike at this price they seem to be fine.

I have those brakes on a different bike and have to say they aren't great. I have another bike with 105 caliper brakes and they are just as good in my opinion. They aren't bad, more disappointing if you are expecting them to be like good MTB disk brakes. However, having disk brake mounts means I can always upgrade these which I am happier with as hydraulic road brakes will only get cheaper

would I be right in thinking that at 5'4 I'd need the 51cm.version ?

This is a good spec at a good price, and a decent brand.

An instant upgrade would be some decent tyres, the Schwalbe Lugano are cheap, a nice pair of folding tyres for £35-£40 would make it grippier, lighter, quicker. Eveything else should do just fine, but if you really wanted then chaniging the wheels would be the next upgrade, but you are looking at £150+. Anything else would be spot on and I would just replace at it wears out.

It should serve very well as a durable road bike.

I had similar cable operated disc brakes on a hybrid and couldn't upgrade them soon enough. They were fine on flat areas, but introduce a long downhill stretch and they became very noisy (even when not braking) and there was worrying brake fade. This was even with them checked and adjusted by the bike shop. Upgraded to Shimano XT discs and calipers, opting for a 180mm disc on the front, which are superb. The other benefit of hydraulic is they're self-adjusting.
#23
Very nice bike. A colleague has one and speaks very highly of the bike.
Real bargain at this price. If only this was Tiagra 4700 I'd be all over this.

I had that, changed the pads for a tenner and no more squeaking!

I'm 5'7" and I would go for the 51, I've seen someone my height with a 54 that exact model and it's too big for them.

Hot from me, I don't think anything comes close to this at the moment. Only passed deal similar is the Saracen Tenet?

This bile will feel like £300 above a Carrera, at this money it will be a great first and even last bike for many people. The only thing to bear in mind is getting a good idea of your frame size before you buy.

I had a carrera and then got a better bike which I enjoyed more and therefore cycled more...

I have a 2012 B'Twin Triban 3. Like you say, it's great, does everything I need it to and only cost me £300. I also have a Planet X Pro Carbon, which cost me £1,000. Technically it does less than my Triban 3 (no mudguards, no pannier rack), but it's also a lot more fun to ride and a more comfortable ride.

More expensive = better experience. Go figure!
