Hey

Looking to get an entry level road bike for commuting, with a view to doing some more proper road-biking etc in the future (perhaps).

Am looking at the sub $900 (AUD) range and so far have come up with the Cell Lapa 2.0 or the Apollo Volare.

Has anyone got any recommendations/suggestions between these two?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers

Why not checkout the second hand market, you'd get yourself a decent bike in that price range. I'm sure you looked hard enough, you'd find one thats not bee crashed and is in good condition. There are often some advertised at local races or on sites like bike exchange or facebook.

Hey Ambal, I have done some looking on gumtree but my experience has been that stuff tends to go quicker than I can get onto it! Also, I'm a little apprehensive about getting on something that hasn't been setup for me because of a few close shaves mates have had in the past. Being relatively new to the cycling game I was thinking I should maybe start with a warrantied product and get to know the tech side of things!
