Thanks lads.
I was also looking at the Ribble bikes from the UK. Seem like serious value for what you get spec wise.
Ribble R872 is a serious bike. Fantastic value bike that you could easily race. Had one a few years back and still hankering after it, will likely get one again at some point.

I wouldn't need one for racing. Was more looking at the Ribble Gran Fondo. It's about same price as the Giant bike I posted.

I have both those ribble bikes for a few years now with no issues.  It comes 99% assembled so don't let that putting you off buying one.

I've had both bikes as well, as I said the R872 is definitely racier, but if you've no issues with a bad back it would be an easy choice imo - because the R872 is just a much better bike.

He had some cycle on stage 8 and having a great season so far compared to the end of 2017.  I can't see aqua blue being about in a few years as tgey dont have the money and depend on wild card invites to grand tours to survive.
