Winter Road bike
Looking to purchase a winter road bike now the weather is bound to turn. Got a 2012 tarmac elite for summer, want something with similar feel , but frame must be aluminium. Was going to look on eBay and here for an Allez or similar, but could just spend a bit more (up to £700?) and grab a new one from canyon or ribble…? Not too worried about looks, simple would be good, for £700 I would like almost full 105, for less, well, we’ll see.
this has jumped out so far: http://www.canyon.com/_uk/roadbikes/bike.html?b=2502
Only thing is lack of stock (severely!)
the tarmac is a 56 so…

Have a Boardman Hybrid with drop bars which doubles as a CX bike. Discs are great for winter riding. Bought before they did disc specific CX bikes so would recommend one of them. Room for guards and fatter tyres. Take them off and stick some nobbly tyres on and you can take to the hills!

I have a ribble as well. Got my frame on the clearance section which might be worth a look if they have anything in your size. Specced mine with Fulcrum 5 wheels and full Campag Centuar for under £600. Fair bit of hunting around for bargains mind but it’s all new kit.
It’s so good it’s become my main road bike. Just seem to get on with it really well. I think the frame and forks were about £68 as its the older smaller headset type. Not that I’m bothered…..Posted 5 years ago
