Bike advice appreciated
Hi, I'm from a mountain bike background and so my general race bike knowledge isn't great. I am going to spend around £1k on my first road bike. After reading and research I'd narrowed it to a giant defy 1 or trek 2.1. I went to cycle surgery today to get advice - who sell both bikes - and they threw a real curve ball in suggesting a cube peloton race - the reason is a mich better finishing kit - Easton wheels, 105 groupset etc. the bike looked great - but what do I know. Any advice or help. The guy was very knowledgable and sold all 3 bikes - so tempted to go with it. Finally should I be buying a bike with a compact or triple gear set -& my feeling is compact. Thanks.
