Having accepted that I'm more of a road rider than a mountain biker now, I'm reviewing the current stable and considering investing in a carbon road bike.
Looking for a bike that would be good for long fast sportives with lots of climbing (thinking of the Marmotte in the future), so comfort, lightweight, and a good range of gears essential. Plus will be using it for TT as well, but will be using clip on TT bars for that.
Any advice or recommendations? I'm only 5' and weigh 47kg so a lot of bikes seem "over built" for me, or relatively heavy. Would it be worth getting a frame and building it up - in which case any recommendations for wheels / components etc? And is Di2 worth investing in?
