Not all carbon is equal... I have an aluminium alloy bike which is actually lighter than this.
That said, great deal! Tiagra is meant to be pretty decent these days.

Yeah, they've improved it quite a bit. None of the messy cables poking out the side of the levers which is a nice touch.
Weight is not the only issue. Stiffness is.

Can't beat a stiff one

Tell ya what, it is pretty stiff!
I had Tiagra from 2015 I think. I was going to put 105 straight on but I've ended up sticking with it. Small adjustment each year or so and it's been great. No experience of that bike though, mines a Felt CX.

The same principle applies, just because it is made of carbon doesn't make it stiffer.
A lot of bike for the money. Even though this would be considered an entry level bike and probably not an upgrade from a half-decent alloy bike. To get a basic carbon frame AND Tiagra 4700 still in season is a seriously good value.
Shame you can't choose the crank length. I would imagine for riders choosing size XS, the standard 172.5mm will be way to long.
And also the brakes are non-groupset. Which is a shame because the matching Tiagra brakes are very good indeed (paired with premium blocks).
Can't find any mention of what wheels it comes with. Safe to assume they're going to be pants. But that's always the first upgrade on any bike south of £1k.

The wheels are a pair that are £65.59 so obviously quality... ribblecycles.co.uk/rod…rs/ and the brakes are all of £34.99... ribblecycles.co.uk/rib…et/
So you can see where savings made.

6 year warranty on the frame which while not the best warranty is better than many offering 2 or 3 years. Maybe its a bit stronger and heavier than some carbon frames to offer that warranty. I think Trek and Specialized offer lifetime warranties on carbon frames though.
