/ cube axial wins (vs specialized dulce vs ribble sportive 7005)
Ive just put a deposit down on a Cube WLS
which fits well, feels good, looks lush and all for £810 from the local bike shop (with 105 groupset too). Well, £810 plus £90 off gear, which has been spent on a helmet and pumps x 2.
I am really excited :) Thanks to all who provided input and put up with my ignoramus questions. Now if the monsoon would only stop for a little while over the weekend, that would be great.
Thanks both - been out for a couple of ten mile-ish rides now and its just lovely. Downhill is joyous. Uphill is, erm, hard - out of the saddle feels all weird/I cant do it! << says very quietly>> already glad of the triple. shhhh.
The Ribble effewct is now established and my partner bought a Bianco in March nad has done half a dozen sportives already!
It is worth thinking what you might want from the bike - If you just might do one or two Sportives then a Dolce might not help you on this path. I would recommend a Sportive bike as a great alround compromise.
