    New bike advise please

    Hi to everyone iam new to the forum and looks a great site to get some information and help.

    Iam looking to purchase a new road bike very soon
    Iam currently own a Merida Ride and have owned this for around 3 yrs so looking to take a bigger step
    I've looked at a fair few bikes this last 3 months or so and a few have caught my eye but was hoping to get some advise before I make a decision.
    The bikes I've been looking at are the venge vias and the scott foil team issue and the scott solace premium
    The type of ride I do is about 30-50miles with climb around 1500ft around 3-4 times a week weather permitting.
    Also around 2-3 sportives a year
    I have a budget of 6k
    Iam also going to London bike show on 18th feb to take a look at a few scott bikes
    Just looking to see what people views are

    And help would really be appreciated

    With that kind of budget, you're in the market for anything you like!! Personally, I would be test riding as many different bikes as possible before parting with my money. Some retailers have demo bikes they will let you have for a week or so allowing you to get a proper feel for them and influencing your decision. Good luck with your search, an enviable position to be in.

    Thanks for you reply on this
    I took a scott foil away for a demo but the fame size was not right size so didnt really get the correct ride but all in all was 100% better than my current bike
    As said iam going to london bike show so hope to see a few bikes and maybe test a few if aloud.
    Iam not in any rush at all but iam hoping to get some advise on the venge vias if possible

    This event would be a good thing for you if you can get there, even if it is run by the competition.

    Sorry about that, I ought to have explained that in order to attend a member's event first you need to become a member. I see from your next post that you appear to have done so, so welcome aboard.
