Also an aluminium frame. I'm not saying it's for everyone, but if you do prefer the ride of steel this does seem like a good deal.

I don't see how that contradicts what i said? Unless you have an unlimited budget, buying a bike is always a compromise. You have to choose which components are more important to you, and some people prefer the ride quality of steel frames. To those people, this is a pretty good deal considering the cost of other steel framed bikes and the respectable spec of the rest of the parts.

But obviously I'm not the only one that thinks this isn't a good deal. Steel is cheaper to make anyway. This isn't a good deal, steel or not.

It's a steel that makes this a good deal, so that statement doesn't really apply. And evidently you haven't seen the price of any similarly specced bikes. But regardless, it's clearly not an important enough factor for a lot of people here so let's agree to disagree.

Nice find, but only the X Small size is available. You can find other sizes for twice that.

I'm surprised that a bike costing over £500 hasn't been voted insanely hot by the bike snobs.
