After a long hard search I came across the Avanti INC 3 made in New Zealand but sold here in Europe. After a quick search I found Real Cycles had this bike for sale and to make it even better it was on a special offer at a price I could not refuse some £400 down on its retail price!
Why did I buy this bike?
The nearest competitor sold in the UK was the Scott Sub Speed 10.
The INC 3 Versus The Scott Sub Speed 10
Speed 10 Gates carbon drive CDC INC 3 Gates Carbon Drive CDX (center tracking)
Better Brakes on the INC 3 Shimano hydraulic disc's and the clincher is Shimanao Alfine 11 on the INC 3 over Alfine 8 speed on the Speed 10. Also the price could not find a scott cheaper than £1000 and had to wait for delivery.
Real Cycles Sent me the bike in the box I found it very easy to put on the front wheel saddle post and attach the peddles (remembering left hand thread on one side!)
The first ride on this bike is amazing so quite and the gear change is what sold me this bike.
