Anybody got one of these?

Evans have them for £849 - i am very tempted (as a newbie) - what do people think?

    Hi Ossy,

    I bought one about a month ago. and to be honest I absolutely love it! For me it's so much quicker than my Giant SCR3 and I feel the acceleration every time I push down.

    I've upgraded the brakes to Ultegra and they are extremely good now.

    The gearing is excellent on them - the crank is completely adjustable and the rear is indexed.

    Like I say I love it and for the money I don't think you can go wrong!

    Mate have a thought first.

    What are your goals, to enter lots of tri's or do just the bigger distances like olympic/iron man etc.

    If it the first one, go with the roo, its a lovely bike.

    If its second go with the carbon, but if you have never done a tri before having a carbon bike will make zero differance to your time ( over having the roo)

    It's a lot of bike for the money. It was on my shortlist although I ended up getting a Focus Izalco Tria.
