Has internal cable routing too (according to the web description)? Wow, despite the Sora groupset that's a lot of bike for the money.

There's not much wrong with sora, other than being 9 speed. It's fine and the groupset can be upgraded in time as and when you want to

bargain. you could sell the Sora on it,and upgrade to 105 for £279. I bet you'd get£100 for the Sora easily.

I disagree. Sora is a clunky groupset and does not easily slide into gear, even when set up correctly (said as someone who has now owned to bikes with Sora as standard). Would definitely strip down and replace with 105.

I'd suggest you, in fact, haven't set it up right.

I have bikes with ultegra and 105 and find shifting pretty similar. It doesn't have the cables under the bar tape and is only 9 speed but performance wise I find it very similar

Nothing wrong with Sora but for £650... Don't know.

Maybe I don't but at least I can set up a bike properly! Maybe get new friends?

I doubt very much that you can set it up better than someone who races bikes for a living mate!

Guys come on now. Sora works but it's not great. Very similar to Tiagra, nothing special. Setting up gears is an easy process and usually only needs a barrel adjustment.
Now APEX is like butter compared but that's my opinion.

I agree, I wasn't saying it was great but it's fine and I'd say shifting is on a par with 5700 105

I've had sora, I can set a bike up well, it's okay, but as said, it's not great, it works and does a job, I've never had it clunky, it's a little slow to change and doesn't like changes under pressure so to speak

Anyone seen this bargain here?

http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CBPXRT57FOR/planet-x-rt-57-sram-force-22-road-bike

I got a PlanetX full Carbon Sram Rival for £750 just after Christmas, yet to go out on it though :(

Great price for a full carbon bike, I have a felt f95 with sora groupset, it's a great bike for the money and the rear mech changes are nice and slick but the front one is a bit industrial!

Doesn't seem much better than the (Argos) Ventura CP50, which was £399.

Sora made a big leap in 2013 with the double paddle shifters. I've got a 2012 Specialized and Sora was terrible, The change of design in 2013 was a big improvement. It's still a bit low-rent in terms of finish, but I'd ride it on a training or winter bike with no complaints. The biggest issue that some riders may have is spinning-out on the 50 tooth compact if they're pushing it downhill (in terms of where they might want to upgrade) but this is only really a problem for the minority.

You can get a refurb, which is basically new for £399 I think... Well, you could last week anyway.

Wait a couple of weeks, it'll be back down to £499 and then the refurbs will be back down to £399 on eBay.

Their Apex RT-58 alloy was going for £400, some good deals.

Bare in mind if you wish to upgrade this group set later on you will have to change the free hub body unless you're not going for 11 speed, the new 105 group set is 11 speed which means with this bike and spec you would need a new free hub body to accept the rear 11 speed cassette.

On a side note, the carbon frame wont be all that great, it wont be the highest of quality or lightest a good quality aluminium frame will respond better than a cheap carbon bike.

I sell bikes for a living in a large cycle shop and thought I'd give a heads up for those considering this deal.

You shouldn't need much more than Sora on a bike at this price point. Recent Sora works very well. Even the old 8 speed worked just fine for me. I've got dura ace on my best bike and honestly the difference just isn't that great. Proper set up is key. If your shifts are sloppy take it into a decent LBS.

You really should teach yourself to adjust gears.

Were you directing this to me? If so I agree, and I can set up my bikes fine thanks.:p My comment was in reply to the chap that was saying he can't get good shifting out of Sora, despite his racer mate having helped him.

Wasn't directed at you but at what you said.

^ So, yeah it was directed at you.

It was adding to what he said, I wasn't telling him to learn how to adjust gears, I was suggesting to learn how to adjust gears yourself rather than go to a LBS.
