Awaits the road tax debates or you can by a car for this comments! It's not designed for commuting it's designed for racing on or enthusiast riding!

FYI - this is just the FRAME and the GROUPSET, e.g. no wheels etc.

It seems to be a bargain though! But no size options... its either gone or was never an option?

Very hot. I'd love to buy this and build it up.

Available in lots of sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XL, XXL

Compact (easier for climbs) or standard chainset.

You would need wheels, tyres, saddle, stem, handlebars and bar tape to build this up. If you bought the 11 speed version you would need a 11 speed compatible wheelset.

You can get one with wheels in halfords for about 100 quid! :-)

Yes saw this in a thread on bikeradar yesterday. Good deal

Cracking deal for such a great bike.

I know nothing about top end bikes like this but wow, that looks like one incredible bit of kit.

Sorry, I can see the size options now! My work browser stops some parts loading due to using an old version of IE. Bargain.

I bought a mountain bike for £75 from Boots online about 10 yrs ago. Is this much better than that?

(They both have two wheels, a handle bar and a seat...)

This is a good way of building a bike. Everyone has their own favourite wheels, saddle, bars, etc. - so often when you buy a complete bike the first thing you do is change all these bits and the old ones go in a box gathering dust.

Excellent price - very hot!

All depends on the rider; maybe for you, no. I am also not of a level where I would get meaningful benefit from a bike this good but some people are...

Thats like comparing a £7500 car with a £119 900 car, which one is better ?

(They both have four wheels, a steering wheel, an engine and the £7500 car may have more seats emmm)

They should have used a black background.

Why do we have to go through this nonsense EVERY TIME someone posts a bike over £100?

If people don't understand why more expensive bikes cost what they do then they should probably not show their ignorance and not post.

It's not possible to directly compare a £100 bike with what I would call a "real" bike. Why? Because they are like chalk and cheese. The more expensive bike will (if looked after properly) last 1,000's of miles because of better workmanship, components, design, etc.

My road bike has done 60,000 miles since I bought it 7 years ago. It cost around £2,000. I'd say that pound-for-mile that's good value for money. You would have to ride well over 2,000 miles on your £75 Boots bike to equal that (though I doubt it would last that long).

But over and beyond the price, there's the sheer pleasure every time I use it. It's my hobby (and a very healthy one too) and I don't begrudge what I spend on it as I find it enormously enjoyable.

Would I get the same pleasure from a £75 bike. Definitely not - that's where I started and that first bike was a waste of money. It fell apart in weeks and was absolutely horrible to ride.

This site is about bargains. The OP's bike is an absolute bargain by any reasonable person's standard, so there's need or point in criticising other folk's lifestyles.

Great deal. Understand that this is a race bike in the true sense of the word. This is not really suited to someone who just wants a really good road bike for year round use - this needs to be raced IMO.

Great deal. Love my di2. 11 speed version mechs are much neater. Just gone through this winter at 150 miles a week and it gives me no grief other than charging the battery.

Something something, you could buy a car for this...etc etc
Edited by: "Splashmo" 1st Mar 2014

Wow, the chsinset alone costs £1000, this is a great deal!

But I can't afford it

Definitely a hot deal. I dream of Di2!

What a shame, its now only available with the (imho) chocolate teapot compact chainset...

Apart from that huge failing, its a deal.

Seeing i have 5 bikes, (thats about same as a low end porsche in "costs more than m'car* morons terms )
Anyone want this frame and I will take the d12?

And that why this deal is bloody good!

Loving the stealth wheels on this bike. Must be made out of the same material as wonder woman's plane.

On a more serious note, crud, I'm tempted to do yet another bike build.

Did I say one should not commute on this? No I said it is not designed to be a commuter bike it's designed to be a race bike.

firstly, you bought a bike from boots!? where do you buy perfume? halfords?

secondly, yes this is much much better.

thirdly this deal doesn't have any wheels, doesn't have handlebars or a seat.

Über HOT...

that's great and all but still doesn't hide the fact that I've had a mountain bike from Halfords bought 17 years ago and it's still running fine used most days. It cost 75 quid.

1k for a bicycle. Hilarious.

1) It's not 1k for a bike, it's 1.2k for a frame and groupset.
2) You obviously don't ride your 'mountain bike' anywhere near mountains.... or hills.... or mounds .... or even very slight road undulations or you'd have sussed out pretty quickly that it's a turd.
3) You probably don't ride your bike on the road that much or you'd have realised it's a massive turd.
4) Google a little bit and you'd realise why these top end bike components cost the money that they do. You probably wouldn't see the benefit of them (neither would I), but there are plenty of enthusiasts that would.

Thanks for the input though. Would you be able to post a link to any Halford's men's bikes currently at near £75?
