Hi all, looking to replace my old road bike - after something quite racey/aero - rarely ride much longer than 90-120 mins and like to go hard. All my races are usually around an hoiur or less and never really have time for longer rides so race geometry and aero rather than all day comfort and endurance. Budget…around £1800 her in UK.
Also I want CALIPER brakes - yes I know discs are the future etc etc BUT I never really ride in the rain, I find calipers easier to work with AND (most importantly) I have several sets of nice wheels I plan to put on this bike and can’t afford to replace them with disc ones! If I was starting from scratch then likely would go disc, but once got few sets of decent wheels I want to stick with caliper. Also would consider SRAM but ideally Shimano (105 or Ultegra, easy with either option)
With that in mind any ideas? Ones I’m considering are:
Planet X EC-130 with Ultegra - £1800 - https://www.planetx.co.uk/c/q/bikes/road-bikes/ec-130e-aero-road
Van Rysel RCR 900 CF with 105 - £1500 - https://www.decathlon.co.uk/rr-900-cf-carbon-road-bike-black-105-id_8500479.html#v2379725
Wiler Centro Air 1 with 105 - £1750 - https://www.merlincycles.com/wilier-cento-1-air-105-road-bike-190337.html
Anyone got any of these? Any other options? Cheers
