I was gonna go for a cannondale,super six, but ended up back on a boardman for my replacement road bike,
the cannondale looked lovely, but the boardman won on discount available.
re wheels, I use mine 8-10 weeks ahead of my main race (get used to them). In winter they go away and I use my old set of wheels....... These are wearing out after 4 years so I am after a new set this year.......£250 max but looking for a good deal
