First Roadbike

Postby ClintonL » Fri Nov 08, 2013 8:18 pm

Hey guys, i know you'd prob get a heap of these posts but i'm after my first road bike. I've tried doing a bit of research and got pointed to reid bikes/polygon and cell bikes with little clue in what to look for. I'm looking to spend about 350-400 but will stretch to 500 if theres a significant difference (tiny budget i know but i'm a uni student who won't get to ride that often). I've checked the frame sizes already so know i need a small one around 50cm. Open to buying second hand but again that's a pain as i don't know what to look for. Any recommendations?

Cheers

Hi Clinton, yeah you aren't going to find much in that 350-400 mark unless you go Online. Maybe try and stretch it to 550ish where you can pickup a Reid Sport or Cell Blade at a shop where you can try them out and be fitted. Or could try Online with a good brand bike like a Giant Defy in your local area. I'd be looking for something with a min Sora or Tiagra Groupset.

Anyway hope that helps and good luck.
