This is my first road bike, i am a complete novice so fogive me if i miss any important info.
I picked the bike up from the Specialized concept store in Chester. Its been reduced to £450. I bought it on the cycle to work scheme which reduces the cost to £300 or £25 a month for 12 months. They had various sizes available, i went for a 61cm xl.
The only colour available is monster green, but it looks awsome!
Staff confirmed this as a national deal available in all specialized concept stores depending on what stock is left.
I have been looking for a cheap road bike for a while to try it out and this seemed much better than anything else i have seen for £300
