    Hi Clive, I'd buy that bike. It looks perfectly suited to your needs/ budget, looks good and you'll probably be able to swing your leg over one. In fact Mosquito bikes on Essex Road sell Genesis and will be able to make sure the bike fits without going through a full-blown bike fit, which is probably surplus to requirements as your body/ needs will change depending on the cycling you do in the future.

    just to provide another contrary opinion :) don't overthink it - you're new to road bikes so the position will take some getting used to and you might end up wanting/ needing a different position in 6 months as you want to drop the bars, get a longer stem and raise the seat...
    jus find one that looks good and fits well enough.
    £1,500 will get you a nice bike. I would personally choose from:

    • Cannondale Synapse 105
    • Canyon Ultimate AL or Endurace CF

    How do I go about getting my jersey?

    Hi - if you've bought a jersey as part of your membership then once +The_Other_Rob has sent you confirmation and a voucher then you can pop down to Mosquito bikes on Essex Rd who hold a stock of our jerseys.
    Any other kit questions, contact me - [email protected]

    there's a broad range of sizes +PeteC , from 1 through to 7 - you'll be able to find your size in the shop. I'd say the sizings are fairly standard - they're not a race fit - narrowish across the shoulder, generousish around the waist and not overly long... try one on in the shop.

    @paul.b beat me to it (I think he secretly wants my job)

    I'd charge twice the hourly fees that you do....
