Probably the most important issue is getting the correct size and set up for comfort, if your spending £1,000 and still a relative novice, mistakes are expensive, Hewitt Cycles offer a full set up on their jig with Paul Hewitt, he can build up one of his own Hewitt audax frames and his customers include olympic gold medallists, a certain Mr Wiggins and have been there myself for a set up several years ago, you will be sure of a very good comfortable bike, and if positive magazine write ups is what your after, he has a few of those too

Have you looked at Ridley Eos, I'm on my second, nice to ride a long distance and comes with mudguards. We tour France with caravan, also have friends who live in Belgium, every 3rd bike it seems is a Ridley of some type, look at the type and distances they ride especially in France. Worth a look anyway

it all depends on how much you won't to spend for £999 the Cube Peloton looks like a very nice bike and gets a good write up in cycling + there is also a article in this months issue about bikes under the £1000 mark.

Specialized Tricross. I don't own one myself but as the site description states it really is a jack of all trades. http://www.specializedconceptstore.co.uk/Detail/12tricross/tricross/Tricross

Hi All. Was wondering if anyone has some suggestions for a new bike. My current machine is a Dawes Audax, which I've had for a few years, not sure of its age - I picked it up from eBay for 120 quid, and it's been brilliant. But have been considering taking up the cycle2work scheme to upgrade. I had specced up a Ribble Audax as Ribble do the C2W scheme, but have discovered that being a small company, I can just buy what i want and claim on expenses - so where I can get something from has just opened up a bit! So basically I am after an audax type bike - fast on the road, but will take mudguards and pannier rack for the daily commute. Suggestions welcome!
