I've been a keen mountain biker for many years, though have enjoyed time on a couple of awful road bikes, so all this roadie stuff is new to me. However, i'll plough on.
Now I fancy getting a road bike as some of my biking buddies have, mainly for fast day rides/sunny evening blasts/sportives etc
But, two problems. Firstly, I can't let it cost too much, for all the usual reasons, and secondly I've got my heart set on something steel and a bit more interesting.
To cut a long misty eyed story short, I expect and want this bike to last a long time and have it for a few years; But if I don't I don't want to spend loads on a new "bling" bike that will likely be worthless in a few years if I don't end up using it. And lastly I remember my dad waxing lyrical about how good 531c was,how the ride comfort is great etc......
So, anyone got anything that might be suitable, or want to tell me that i'm off my rocker and why?!!
