    Looks. Always looks.

    Spec/weight. If you get into road riding it’ll be a never ending quest to lose weight (off your bike and off yourself).

    Looking at two road bikes (sorry) and unsure of which to go for. One is an own brand bike and has 105, carbon frame, 18lbs. The other is a reputable brand, has a carbon frame, looks a lot nicer, but is 20lbs and has tiagra. Also it’s more expensive.

    Which would you go for? I’m thinking how I won’t want to ride something which I don’t like the look of. But I’ll kick myself for spending more and getting less just for the paintjob.
