Thanks Al that’s good to know
As for buying without a ride, its a fair point but the savings and opportunity to send it back are worth it for me
TBH every bike ive bought even from bike shops ive not had a proper test ride (i mean a good day or two), just the car park ride around or a short test track which i personally find it hard to judge by in either case as each new bike takes some getting used too.
that said ive been very happy with most of my purchases be it online or through a shop
but more to the point i still cant decide what to buy !!! HELP !!!
but i did just buy a Moda intro for my turbo trainer ….Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber
These days I am pretty happy to buy bikes without a test ride, I know pretty much what sizes and angles work for me. If you haven’t worked that out, I would recommend having a sit on experience first.
Canyon are great value and the frames are top notch, not just bought from a manufacturers catalogue and badged up, which the rose bike frames are.Posted 4 years ago
its a fair point Al, buying off a spreadsheet does not offer the chance to assess the feel/compliance and that’s the area you do need to turn to the reviews and forums for unless you can get a long test ride.
and ‘feel’/comfort is one of the reasons the canyon is on my short list as it’s reported to have an excellent comfort factorPosted 4 years ago
