Been thinking of getting a proper road bike for a while, and was considering, well almost everything at one point or another. I looked at Rose, Canyon, Scott CR1, Synapse etc. I'm after something confortable rather than racy.
On Friday I had a brief spin on the EMX - 3 at Evans in Manchester. cheap tat?Didn't exactly blow me away but then there were no hills and no-one really to rise against/with.
It's completely shallow, but I'm drawn to it simply because it has 30% discount. The head tube seems quite long so it should be comfortable, but apart from that and the shiny Carob fibre Athena cranks I don't really know much about it. It weighs 8.3kg with nasty pedals on.
Anyone got any experience of these bikes? Are they any good or just junk that never sells full price and they just flog them off discounted to muppets like me at the end of the year...
