Looking for a road racing bike and came across this 2010 model, all sizes available, free delivery. Most websites seem to show above £550, some £650.
I'd appreciate anyone finding a similar spec bike any cheaper as I'm going to order one later today otherwise... much appreciated !

looks great value to me. go for it before they sell out.
I have bought a bike from Winstanleys and found them very helpful.
#2
Agreed. I bought an Oyama Lexington from Winstanleys at half price and their service and delivery was excellent and very quick!
Looks like a very good package for the money, a lot better than all these nasty supermarket, Halfords and Argos bike deals.

RRP of £650 is overvaluing it by about £100, then you need to knock off a discount for it being a 2010 model.

Represents fair value at £349 as long as it's right for you.

Any reviews?

Buying a bike based on a magazine review is like buying Marmite because I told you it's nice. Consider them nothing more than a very rough guide and remember that they're someone else's opinion. If you're spending your money, then do your own review - get a test ride.

I'd agree that the RRP is overpriced - I bought my Ribble Alu/Carbon with mainly Campag. Veloce group and Campag. Khamsin wheelset for £625 (cannot praise it highly enough!) and whilst I like the look of the Dawes spec. it simply doesn't compare with the Ribble at the same pricepoint - at £349 its a hot deal, at £650 its freezing!

You didn't get a dual suspension bike did you? I imagine all the trax bikes are high tensile steel so quite heavy but the basic bikes without suspension should be usable if crude. Certainly wouldn't recommend one for long journeys especially if just bought. Normally its wise to to get used to a bike first and eliminate any early problems. I bought a basic steel mountain bike without suspension and found the ball bearings needed replacing quite quickly in the front wheel. Must have ridden it hundreds of miles before any other problems reared their head. Super heavy bike though, people joked it was made of lead pipes or depleted uranium. Ideal for burning calories and cycling on a windy day. Very stable. Not so great going up hills. The only people I could overtake on it easily were people on cheap dual suspension mountain bikes and the elderly. It had a certain momentum on the flats. I managed to get to about 45mph going down hill.

Surely it's not a £600+ bike spec? The groupset of 2300 is poor compared to Sora, Tiagra or 105?

I was looking for a roadbike, the 60cm frame seems to suit but being 6ft 2" I'm unsure about the shorter top tube for the more upright position?

I doubt they sold many for £650 but a fair bargain for this price.

58-60cm is about right for someone 6ft2". You could always lengthen the position with a longer stem, that's if you feel you need it. However, if you're new to road bikes I would start with something more upright and a shorter top tube to get your body used to riding in a roadie position, then you could always extend from there.

Can't justify it, but it is would suit me fine. Want to longer distance cycling - can't justify the expense... and this is about 2/3rd the weight of the commuter I have. Hot from me, just can't justify it!
#15
It sounds like an absolute bargain. I so want to buy this buy my girlfriend would kill me.
