Hi, I'm new to the road bike cycling scene and wanted to get some advice from some more experienced users before committing to a bike.
At the moment I have a budget of around the £550 mark and have been considering the Triban Rc500 as it has pretty good reviews and I can get in cheap on a cycle to work scheme, it comes under warranty etc.
Or looking for something second hand on the classified forum? Generally higher spec but older/ not under warranty, larger upfront cost, etc.
To put it into perspective I haven't got all to much experience and wondering that any bike I commit to now I will think differently in a year's time and wish I went for something different. I'm looking at using it as a commuter and long weekend rides, and advice would be appreciated.
