Good So Far

This is my first road bike so I don't have a to to compare it to, but so far so good. There's a fair bit of whirring noise coming from the gears when they're in certain combinations (not great terminology...), but hopefully that can be sorted whenever I get round to taking it to a bike shop. But I'd say it's good value for money, really nice looking, feels smooth and quick (to me!), and I'm pleased I got it. Got to really stress that the service from Tredz has been excellent. Whoever I've spoken to in any department has been really helpful, which has been very much appreciated, so I'll definitely make them my first option when buying more kit in the future (in fact I've already bought more things from them since getting the bike).
