Cant beat it

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I bought this bike after test riding a lot of bikes. DI2 Jamis Xenith, Fuji SST, a few Treks and this was by far the best ride! Light stiff frame that you really notice when setting off and on climbs. Although the name suggests "racer" it is comfortable for long rides i regularly do 70miles plus on it and is smooth and handles great.
Spec for £ is the best around, full Ultegra including brakes where most companys scrimp to save money. High spec wheels for the price range too.
Only downside is the handlebars are relativly narrow for the frame size, but i just used this as a reason to upgrade.
Bought this just before the winter as next years best bike having only squeezed a few hundred dry miles on it before the weather changed and i cant wait to get back out and rack the miles up on it again.

Everything you could possible want

IMHO This is by far the best you can get in terms of value for money. Everything down to the finishing kit is branded and top quality, the frame set is unbelievable, so light and rigid but has a fantastic ability to soak up the vibrations and bumps on rougher roads.
When looking at reviews for this bike I found there was an opinion that the forks made the bike feel unstable at higher speeds, but I can say I haven't experienced anything like this so please don't read too much into that
A couple of weeks after buying this bike Evans reduced the price and also added a 10% further discount so I decided to call them and ask if there was anything they could do? Evans agreed to reimburse me all for the total amount I could have saved without question, these guys are top notch!
Anyway to sum things up, this bike will make you quicker in every way ....
