Road bike $800-$900

Postby glengood » Wed Oct 10, 2012 11:32 am

Hi,

I am looking to buy my first Road bike and would like to spend $800-$900 dollars. Wiggle is currently having a special for their new AUD site, and the Boardman Team can be had for $806 dollars until the 18th of October. Can anyone think of a better bike in this price range ?

i think i spend to much time and money here

EDIT: I've ridden a team boardman, sadly only through a carpark. felt nice. very solid, responsive.

Super Elliots are running out a few models in your price range, worth a look

Cheers - turns out it was a pricing error on wiggle anyway and the bike is actually $1250 delivered, which makes it pretty average - and so I will definately be able to spend more time looking around at some of the models suggested.

Just picked up a 2011 Oppy A4 (Tiagra 9 spd & Mavic Aksium wheelset) for $800 brand new to go on my indoor trainer - as the other half would rather I had N+1 than drag a bike up and down the stairs a few times a week.

Reckon I can use it on the trainer for a couple of years and probably still sell it for $600. Rides surprisingly well - just dont try it with a trainer tyre on ;-)
