Cheers Dave-had to look them up as never heard of one before!
Looks exactly what I need-now need a deal

You could buy a car for that much

I have this bike I will not recommend it, it might be cheap as compared to other carbon bikes but not worth it
, I'll suggest buying a good aluminum bike for the price

Why not humadoon? I'm tempted, been looking for a road bike around 3-400 for a while.

The bike is heavy and the quality is poor, you feel it when you are rising it, my merida allu was lighter than this.

To describe this bike as heavy is frankly untrue. It's a very, very good bike for the money. Full sora groupset, r500 wheels and the quality of the frame is more than adequate. I've been riding this bike at least three times a week for the last 5 months.

apx 1.5kg for the frame and forks, hardly heavy, the wheels are heavier than more expensive ones but are probably more robust. As things wear out you can replace them with lighter items but at best you might save 2kg, either way it will always be lighter than an alu frame with similar gear.

Cheers guys. Have taken the plunge and bought a 58cm.

Be interested in how you like it. £400 for a full carbon bike a steal.

No probs - will let you know.
I found some other forum threads on here and also other websites and general consensus was that it was a bargain.
Looking for pedals, helmet etc now
