    Well i cant read finnish so couldnt read all the specs. Cannondale is a very good brand with lots of years behind them they are an expensive bike tho so when you buy one around that price range you dont really get the best parts list with them. The insera bike seems nice its the more fragile one of the lot id say buy the looks of it but should be fine for everyday riding as long as you look after it. The euro seems to be doing well to the pound at the moment and uk shops online always seem to have good deals might be good to check some out on there.

    Thanks for your advice...just want to get a bike which I can use immediately...so I think ordering from the UK might not be a good idea for me

    The black Cannondale looks interesting for me and it is black...have actually never heared about the other brand...

    Cannondale is the only bike there that i was familiar with we dont have the other brands in australia to my knowledge. But cannondale are a nice bike and have a good customer service and warrenty behind them so you cant really go wrong with them. And an all black bike does look pretty cool

    InterSport at Jumbo have a sale on at the moment.
    Change of manager so they try to reduce inventory to make the handover easier.
    I noticed that they had some Scott quasi mountain bikes at a good price.
    They are not quite up to same semi pro level of Canondale, but are you semi pro?

    I would give this one a close look.
    It has very good gears and excellent disc brakes.

    Sram components are up there with the best its kinda hard to say what is better sram vs shimano? Its one of those wars like xbox vs playstation. I do think sram is better for the top end stuff the x4 is its second lowest component set but will still do a good job at shifting for what you are doing. And as i said earlier when you buy cannondale you wont get all the high end parts untill you start to pay around the 1600euro mark.
