I'm in the market for a new bike that will be used for long distance sportives. Budget is around £2K. I'm hopeless on hills so a triple chainset is needed (doing Fred Whitton and L'Etape), or maybe a compact with a cassette going out to about 30.
Obvious candidate, and current favourite, is the Specialized Roubaix. I'm wondering about others though. Canyon seem to produce great value bikes, and there's the Trek Madone and a few other possibles.
Wondered if anyone out there has any other thoughts or recommendations? Ta.
