Road CC list their top 10 Road bikes priced between £1000.00 and £1500.00, and Mekk come up trumps with their Poggio 1,5 and 2.0:
The Mekk Poggio 2.0 is a good all-round road bike with tons of upgrade potential. It features a full carbon-fibre frame, the same one that Mekk use across the whole of the Poggio range right up to the £2,399.99 Poggio 3.5. It has a tapered head tube and press-fit BB86 bottom bracket to add stiffness. This model is built up with a Shimano 105/Tiagra groupset, R500 wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro 23mm tyres with a new Selle Royal saddle.
Road CC tested the cheaper Poggio 1.5, with the same frame. You can read the review here
