Going to treat myself to a pre Christmas gift and have decided to upgrade my aluminium Specialised Allez Sport to something carbon.
Don't want to spend the earth so have been looking at Ribble and Planet-X.
The Ribble I like is the R872 but the bikes on the Planet-X site are confusing me....
...I like the R57 but fear it may be too stiff and as harsh as my current aluminium bike, the Pro Carbon looks a more comfortable bike but is it getting long in the tooth now, a bit heavy, a bit too flexy etc?
Anybody tried either?
I don't race but at the same time I don't want a commuter type road bike that I then have to change again if I do start racing.
Will the Pro Carbon be enough bike to grow with me as my road riding improves or is it for comfort only?
