Looks like a great deal!
Good price with 105

Why a winter bike ? Its Spring.
As far as I can see CRC have price matched this. - Link

And of course, British Cycling members can get a further 10% off.

Yes, I think you're right, but the 10% discount for British Cycling members is why I posted.
Nice to see a 105 chainset.. rather than FSA or some other cost cutting..
What does it emit?
If anyone is looking for a bike at this price range then I would recommend looking at the Ribble R872. £1000 with full carbon frame with Ultegra groupset. Had mine for 12 months and love it.

Afraid so. 25 years ago when I was a teenager a Carbon/Titanium bike with similar (for then) components would have cost twice what this one does, and that's before inflation is taken into account. Yeah, there are some crazy flagship bikes that cost 10k, but spending a grand on a road bike? You've never had it so good!

Good to see a full groupset fitted.
Frame will be on the cheap side but I'd rather spend the saving towards a nice set of wheels than pay for a fancy carbon and badge.

The frame is the most important part of the bike, probably the last place you should be looking to make savings. Carbon seems like a status symbol these days, people don't really seem to care if the frame is good so long as it is made of carbon.

Depends if the expensive bike sits in the shed and is not ridden much. But if you ride it then the pleasure and joy you get makes the expenditure seem insignificant versus the benefits to your wellbeing.

No, you can still pop along to, let’s say Halfords and pick up a cheap run of the mill bike. There is just simply more choice ‘these days’ with better components/frames that I’m afraid will cost more. Choice is a good thing, you can still choose a heavy frame with basic components and it won’t cost you much, but on the other hand you want a refined bike you have to pay for it

Ahhh, so your saying that you are so wealthy that a £900 bike is for trashing. Impressed.

Sorry...I am not a member so don't know if you can use the two at the same time.
mdentz2 h, 5 m ago

Can the 10% discount be used along side cycle to work scheme?


I am a CTC member and I would say you can, as the discount is offered by two separate bodies. Wiggle offer 10% to CTC members and the government (correct me if I'm wrong) runs the cycle to work scheme, which is an interest free loan less taxes (iirc).

How you purchase so that both discounts could be applied, I don't know, as your employer has to purchase the cycle (iirc).

It's like everything with age inflation happens look at most peoples tums to prove that?

All these bike sellers must know a little about the quality of the gear they fit and to make the best value to sell and just with a little investigation FSA chainsets seem to be good "gear".

Nothing inferior about FSA in my experience. In fact, at some price points/products I'd say they were superior to the competition.

Agree; prices have gone up and specs dropped over last two years. Some bikes seems really poor value for money now. But this deal is very good and does represent good value for money.

Not at all. It’s still a lot of money. I covered over 6500 miles across 4 bikes last year, so it’s just a matter of the requirements for that level of commitment

He is right this may make a good winter bike. He is not implying that its ok to trash this but what you need to appreciate is the components on a summer bike are far more expensive to replace than whats on this. Dura Ace & Campag Record are not cheap. 105 on the other hand is fairly affordable.
Id say this is the price it should be for the spec

suspicious the weight rating

Just bought this through cycle to work scheme (paid the extra over the phone to CRC so no means of applying quidco). I had not seen the Ribble R872 Ultegra which is the same price.

Kicking myself self because it looks like the better bike. I’m not an expert in analysing the spec - what would you guys say is the better deal
