So I am thinking of getting a road bike to make my commute quicker and to see if I enjoy road riding a bit!
I want to keep the whole process as cheap as possible as I may not even really get on with them beyond riding the bike to work!
I know the super priced Decathalon bikes have been discussed here a lot and I saw them in the flesh recently and they look brilliant, and are bargains. Are there any other real options at that 300-400 price range? I am happy to go 2nd hand! I know nothing about road bikes so a nudge in the right direction would be great!
Also I am a bit short at 5"6' so what size should I be looking at? Guides state from 51-54cm so can anyone really back this up or offer advice?
I know the more money I spend the better it will be but I really do want a budget offering, MTBs are still my love and a road bike would only be for the commute and to see if I actually like road riding.....which I probably will and will then continue to spend a fortune on another bike....we all know how it goes!
