    My consulting fee is $300. Why don't you post links to the bikes and make it easier for people to comment about them? (Try bikepedia.com.)

    I appreciate what you are saying and I know that the brands are fairly obvious but I was intereted in the wuality of the components rather than people's overall view on any given bike. Also I did ask at one point about te Cannondale Quick CX 700 but didn't get any feedback.

    Thanks

    Buy the Scott Sportster P6 or the faster Sub 40 from Evans and save 650 from your 1000 budget. Spend another 45 on teflon lube, spare tubes, gloves, blinkies, and cleaning stuff. And another 35 on locks, plus some fenders. It's a commuter bike. It will be filthy and scratched in a month, if it hasn't been stolen.

    Otherwise if you keep obsessing over Deore vs. whatever it is that Trek or Cannondale fit, the English winter will be here before you even get on a bike. Midsummer's Day is only a couple of weeks away. You should be out riding, instead of OCD'ing bike components.

    You can have that advice Scott free.
