With the European Road season well underaway, we’ve got together three bikes to whet your appetite for the “Cobbled Classics” – sitting together in our showroom are three bikes with real pedigree in this format of the sport:
Ridley Fenix – £1,825
Specialized Roubaix SL4 – £1,600
Giant Defy Advanced – £2,399
In this form, the Ridley Fenix is the cheapest Pro-Tour level bike on the market at the moment and with options including custom paint jobs, it’s hard to resist its all round charm and capability.
The Specialized is a close relative of the bike Tom Boonen and Fabian Cancellara have both ridden to victory in the legendary Paris-Roubaix race – it looks very nice in black and red!
The Giant is perhaps the most understated looking of the trio, a subtle mix of carbon blacks and contrasting white, but with Ultegra throughout its performance is anything but understated!
