flaming chubster - don't know where you live but sigma sports seem to stock both brands so it would be easy to compare and they are meant to be a good shop.   I might just pop along there too.......Sigma

This is exciting.

Hey, this has got everyone looking for new bikes! I live in Herts so I can easily get to a lot of good bike shops.......Leisure Wheels are on my doorstep , have also had a look  at Evans in MK. Will have a look at Sigma Sports , if there is one near it would be great to compare both on same day.

Thanks for all the advice

Trek 1.2 gets my vote!

To be perfectly honest £ for £ there isnt a massive difference between the Specialized and Trek, getting a bike that fits and also that you like the look of (youve got to want to ride it) are the key things.

Well I bought the specialized...I now have to learn how to ride a bike again.  I am so used to a MB I am in big trouble!!  I wobbled all over the place and couldn't even work out how the gears changed.  Not my best moment.  Tried it yesterday for a quick spin, and was fantastic.  So much faster, wind whistling fast!!  Did find that the bumps etc were a bit unforgiving though!!  Anyhow I took the plunge...

Ooooooh  good luck sara.  To be honest I got a bit worried when the shop said they'd accompany me on a ride cos I'm scared stiff of looking a plonker wobbling all over till I find my balance.

well done and glad you like it.

sara - a bikes a bike......  if you have the balance etc from a MTB then a couple of rides and you will be sorted.

tri bars next...????  took me 20 mins to love them......

LOL OC!  Think I will wait and see if I like this tri lark before I buy anymore kit. 

Went out today to see if I could ride in a straight line, and was much better.  A few wobbles and issues with my gear changing!  However knocked 12mins off my old MTB time for my short route without trying-so can see the massive difference it makes.
