    bike advise please....

    have been riding my hardtail for the last 2 years and now selling it on on ebay and thinking of buying a trialton bike that only weighs 7 kilos, anyone have a racing bike on here-if so how hard are they to ride?

    anyone?

    They are so easy to ride since they're so light and built for road use.
    If you've been using a hardtail on the road with off-road tyres then you'll be flying with a purpose built road bike.

    agreed! the amount of people that go flying past me on my specialized enduro is sickening, but at least i get best of both worlds!!

    yeer i've been overtaken a few times but will be able to overtake all the people that overtake me if i get a racing bike-will feel so good when they get owned!

    What do you want the bike for? If it's for triathlon, time trial or road racing? If your going to spend the kind of cash needed to buy a 7kg full carbon bike you need to test some out. Go to your local road bike shop to try a few for size. Or contact your local road bike club, most are happy to let you have a spin on there bikes. There will also be a huge range of bikes from people with a £500 bike upto people with a £2k bike.
