seriously would you buy a car for this price ? would be a right bag of sh ite and in town this would be long gone in the traffic

nice bit of kit for the price , paid this for a caad 10 with lower spec , our lass has put a limit on three bikes though (

Lovely & light, great price, planet-x have some great prices. The RT-57 with 105 for £999 is another proper bargain.

What's your thoughts on the caad 10?

Most bike don't come with pedals because everyone has there own types so economically it makes sense to spend the money on other parts.

man...would love a caad 10. hot for this deal tho!

I think for that price, you could get a proper bike or just stop being a roadie

Is the Planet X carbon £999 with full ultegra (albeit the 5700 version) not a better buy?

It's amazing how often I come across this sort of query so felt I should reply, good equipment such as ultegra does not make it a good bike,,it improves it yes BUT the most important thing is the frame quality and good wheels as they are the heart of what makes it a good bike to ride,heck even the correct size,saddle,bar width etc should come before what gears and brakes its got on it, the rt-57 is a more quality material frame and when the 105 wears out you can replace them with ultegra/dura ace and maybe the wheels eventually and it'll be a stocking light bike,hope this helps.

*stonking not stocking it autocorrected itself.

Here's my take on that, I've been struggling with the same question. The Pro Carbon is another fabulous deal, no doubt about it - a lighter bike with better groupset - but it's an older frame design and a slightly different geometry. The RT-57 is a bit more relaxed than the Pro Carbon. That's what swung it for me.

If it's the Ultegra groupset that really tickles your fancy then take a look at the Sensa Trentino SA Pro at Merlin Cycles. It's the newer Ultegra 6800 11-speed, well worth another £50 if you're happy with an Alu frame & tad more weight.

fantastic bike for eating the miles , not a carbon bike but frame is lighter and stiffer hence smoother than a lot of mates carbons , it just makes you want to keep going , it oozes confidence in the saddle ( just my opinion) ,for me the spec is more than ample for my requirements , only thing i changed was the tyres to my preference , but bear in mind i am not a serious serious rider , i just started out commuting couple of years ago on a typical low end hybrid purely to and from work and moved onto a giant rapid flat bar when i started to enjoy cycling at weekends and when i was upping the miles i pursuaded the missus to get me a "proper bike " , it was a choice well made )

Thanks for the replies guys. I totally get where you are coming from. I need to get past the gears thing clouding my judgement....Tar.

Mind numbing........

Erm, this isn't a bike forum, or transport forum. For those in the know this is good value for money.
