My top 4 road bikes by Joe
Specialized S-Works Venge
First on my list is the awesome Specialized S-Works Venge! Our most popular custom build through 2019 with very positive feedback from all riders.
The Venge models have always been a favourite bike of ours and when Specialized introduced the Vias version which was super aero it felt like cheating! Fast and stiff with great results by riders with the only negative being the brakes. Then the all-new VENGE model with disc brakes was released and has put it in a league of its own. We have a lot of customers riding the Venge with amazing race performances and without a doubt a stunning looking machine. Matched with the Roval 64 wheels and S-Works tyres it really does feel fast, ceramic speed bearings also play a part in making it so fast! We had a couple of riders treat themselves to Venge bikes for Sportive rides including the Etape du Tour and loved them. I have ridden demo bikes and it really does put a smile on your face, so fast when you kick out the saddle!
Italian race-bred machine with many Grand Tour wins under its belt with Team Ineos onboard. The F12 is a very high-end frame which is hand-built in Italy and most definitely the Ferrari of the bike world! If you are looking for the ultimate bike and budget is not an issue then the F12 should be on your shortlist! Dreamy and extremely sexy in every way, build quality is excellent and aero gains are up there with other leading brands. Still produced with calliper brakes as well as disc options this bike really appeals to both camps! Ride one and you will soon get the idea why the price tag is where it is, pull up at the cafe stop and you will soon get a crowd around your bike! Stunning from every angle! Watching this year's Tour de France and seeing the top two places going to the F12 also proves that your exquisite bike is very capable of world-class performances.
Cannondale System Six
This bike was long-awaited from the USA company, they needed to make waves in the aero road market and certainly arrived with a bang. Beautiful bikes which work very well in anger, looks super aero and come complete with aero carbon wheels to match. Offering exceptional value for the state of the art models and rider feedback is very positive. As with my other choices this bike comes with a very neat aero bar/stem setup which all helps when trying to average as higher speeds as possible. The System Six is the fastest proven bike in the wind tunnel and with an Ultegra Di2 model coming in at £5499.99 you can see the awesome value. Many pro races wins in 2019 and we are sure 2020 will produce many podium places.
Looks amazing and rides extremely well with some fantastic price points. If you are looking for a really cool aero bike you can not go wrong with the ORRO, designed in the UK and with some stunning paint finishes. Very popular model with prices starting from £2599.99 for the complete bike with the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 bike retailing for £5499.99. We have sold these bikes to road racers and also very popular with sportive riders. I rode one of these during the summer and it felt like a much more expensive bike than the price tag. If you are looking to spend sub £5,500 on an aero bike I feel this should be on your list!
