Hello all, im kristen from old harlow essex. Been a mtb all my life but after signing up to do the london to brighton this year i have now got the road bike bug :) I have 2 Marin mtb's, a 13 year old nail trail and a nearly 2 year old palisades trail. I up until a few weeks ago was going to do the london to brighton on the marin, but i borrowed a road bike from a neighbour and instantly fell in love with it. Had a look at a few last weekend, tried a few and have decided on this one

Hoping to go put a deposit down on it in the morning :)
Hope to get out for some training on it in a few weeks time :)

:welcome:

Good first road bike! Pretty soon you'll be swapping out the oem kit for some carbon bits, but that'll suit you for a while.

Good luck with the race and keep us posted when you get the bike in!

Another welcome! A very good sensible choice for a first road bike. A very good frame gives you a great base to build upon later. Not that there is anything wrong with the spec components. They should have great life and function very well. But this is Weight Weenies.............:-) :-) :-)
