What would you buy as your first road bike?

The Ribble Sportive

Someone asked me earlier on Twitter what would I recommend as a first road bike.  When all is said and done, I think I’d go for the Ribble Sportive. It’s good value, light and looks good.  I would go for SRAM Rival groupset as a first time purchase. To spend £200 extra on SRAM Force just to save 200g doesn’t seem worth it.

Have you got any recommendations? Focus possibly? A Boardman?
