Buying advice for flat bar bike

31 Mar 2019 00:33

So I want a flat bar fitness bike, its down to 2

-BMC roadmachine 02
https://www.elementcycles.net/product/2018-bmc-roadmachine02-fb-105/
- canyon roadlite CF 8
https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/outlet/fitness-bikes/roadlite-cf-8.0/1975.html?dwvar_1975_pv_rahmengroesse=XS&dwvar_1975_pv_rahmenfarbe=BK

the Canyon has better equipment (Ultegra vs 105) better wheels,...
The price is about the same

So I wonder is the BMCs frame that much better than Canyon; Canyon is a specfic fitness frame; Roadmachine is not but has great reviews

Has anyone tried any of this 2 ?
Which would you recommend ?

Thanks

Price difference is almost certainly down to Canyon's bulk buying and direct sales model, it's pretty hard to beat their prices based on spec.
