Cell Blade Road Bike, is there anything wrong with it i should know about?

As in it's pretty cheap, so it wouldn't fall apart or anything like that? :lol:

Cell put together a good bike at a good price. If it's what you want, you'll be okay.

Typically bikes in the cheaper category are fine for general riding. They are fine if you are willing to accept their extra weight and generally coarser components. They won't be as durable as a top end bike using best quality components, but that's all in the price difference. In any case, you have 12mths warranty on the bike, right?

Sounds like a pretty good deal with a bit of backup then.

You do know it won't be enough for you in a year or so when the upgrade bug hits you? :wink:

There is no screening test, no vaccination, no cure. :(

And no interest among sufferers in researching a cure. 8)

In other words, it's incurable and terminal... Until the end of life. :shock:

Looking at your latest piece of bling Sogood, would you have it any other way?

Actually, that piece of bling was spec'ed to cure my upgrade urge. I plan to ride it till the CF explodes and taking me with it.

But there's always a catch... My training bike. Oops... :shock:

I have heard that Cell bikes sizing is on the large side, so if you can try one for sizing, that would be good.

One thing I do know after being there a few times lately, they were happy to sell me a bike that was 56 though my right size was 54....
