|Good evening folks...
I am mostly a an mtb'er but i sawa great little road bike for sale in a magazine...it says it makes an ideal winter training bike or audax bike...being a mtb'er, i am not familiar with the term audax...
could anyone explain what this is?
the bike is a handmade 7005 frame, carbon forks and a sora group (thats acerax equivalent i think) with a truative crank and ITM stem and bars...all for £299 thats about $450 USD
what do you think?

|i mean...how does it compare to other bikes in its category....dont compare it to >£5,000 bikes...for £300 its £200 cheaper than its rivals plus the frame is hand made in England...the whole bike is 18.5 lbs...even i know that is light for the price..|
|I concur, 18.5 lbs is a bargain for 300 sterling; apologies. (nm)||onespeed|

|believe it or not the diff btw 400$ bike and 2,000$ bike is about 3lbs or 2 water bottles. Now it would cost you about 12sec on 2mi/7% grade.|
