hi everyone, i am looking to buy a new bike, i have a merida lite race but want to up grade it, i am looking to upgrade to a full carbon, i have a budget of £2500 no more, i dont want a tri bike i want to get a racer, any ideas? cheers
Check out Planet X http://www.planet-x-warehouse.co.uk/acatalog/Road.html They have some fantastic deals for Titanium and Carbon. I have been using the Stealth TT bike for 3 seasons and a number of mates in the club are riiding the Titanium road bike. The performance and spec is unbelievable for the price.
Agree with the above. I broke a bike in 2006 and on the spur of the moment bought a Planet X carbon road bike as an emergency "quick fix" Its been an awesome servant ever since for criteriums, road races, riding up mountains, and Triathlons. Bargain!
I have to agree with Adrianbeckett. I was given the opportunity a few months ago to review a boardman which I found excellent. The quality of the bike stood head and shoulders above others. I've not tried the planet X but have also heard good things about them, especially the quality of the groupset you can get with the bike.
Have you thought about spending a little less on the bike and putting some more towards a nice pair of race wheels! They make a good bike even better!
