Hi,

Im looking to get a new road bike, with the following criteria:

Ultegra di2 or above (I think Im like to try electronic and stay shimano so doubt my budget will stretch to dura ace di2)
Disc (tho not wedded to it, I'd go rim brake for the right bike)
I want a lightweight bike, as light as possible, but only looking at stock bikes for now, as I dont have the money to be upgrading from the offset. Climber-type bikes appeal to me, as its my strong suit (if I have one!) and I live in a very hilly area.

Bikes I've considered so far are -
Cannondale Synapse Hi Mod Team Edition (outside my budget so far)
Orbea Orca M20i Disc (love the myo customisation options)
Willier zero7 (can only find older models in my budget)
Scott Addict RC 2018 model (had dura ace di2)

What else should I be looking at within my 4000 approx budget that would meet my criteria?

Cheers,
Terry.

You can buy accessories with the vouchers in the UK at least. So, you could buy a used frame and a brand new groupset using your voucher.
Your cycling kit is one size too big!

Didnt think of that actually.
Any recommendations on somewhere to buy a used frame? To be honest the idea doesnt appeal much, this will probably be the biggest bike purchase I'll make for a long time so I'd much prefer new. But I'd at least consider it from a reputable seller.

Factor o2
Cervelo R5
Canyon CF SLX
Supersix Hi-mod

I don't live in the UK, so sorry if the above bikes are 'out of budget'

Hunt apparently came out with a lightweight set of climber wheels too, less than 900g?
