Based in UK and max budget of £2,000. After new road bike for fun rides and also for races (mainly draft legal duathlons/triathlons). Currently have a Triban 3 which bought new for £300 in 2012 and has never missed a beat!
Fancy a new bike though and something racey/aero… any ideas?
Would rather rim brakes since have some nice rim brake wheels I’d like to use plus I find discs (on my CX bike) far more hassle to set up/maintain. However would consider discs but preference is rim.
Would also prefer Shimano group set over Sram (again have Sram on my CX bike, have used both…but prefer Shimano). Totally happy with 105 and would have 105 and better frame/wheels etc over higher group set…However obviously would accept Ultegra etc.
Giant Propel (lowest spec model within budget)
Giant TCR (fairly low spec model within budget)
Planet X ec130 aero bike
Ribble 833 aero (but only do disc)
Any other suggestions?
I’m 6ft 2 so need large/58 frame so ‘special deals’ are generally no use to me since normally only on XS or XXL frames!
Want more race geometry rather than endurance .
