    I’m considering the above as a first road bike, second hand. Asking price is £425.

    My main concern is that after graduation (2014) I plan on doing some touring, well, John–O–Groats to Lands End to be exact. Can anyone offer any advice as to the suitability of this bike for this use?

    I’m 6’3″, would a 58cm be the right size? The full spec for what I’m looking at:

    for sale is my 2013 secteur, size 58cm (L) bought as a get around bike while i was waiting for my p3 to come into stock. Its had an onboard computer on since i built it up and is showing just under 180 miles i think, and just under 200 hours ride time. condition is near perfect! will come with bottle cage and under saddle bag, original pedals, two new tiers as well as those already on the bike (mavics but unsure on the model) and three innertubes. keo classic pedals are not included and neither is the computer.

    i can post at YOUR expense, collection is also possible.

    these rrp at 650 so grab a bargain! message me if your interested, pay by cash of pay pal.

    Specialized description;

    It will be fine for that trip but how will you carry luggage?

    I think a 58 will be OK for you.
