I am going to start adding cycling into my running schedule (4 times a week/30-35 mpw) and am going to do a couple of 60mins early morning rides before work a week. I currently have a mountain bike (with road tyres) and am going to use that to start with. If i am just after a training benefit, do i need a road bike and if so, what should i buy/spend. Would a £300 basic road bike do just fine? I could afford up to about £500-600, but would i get any extra benefit. Any basic advice on what you get for each price bracket, or what the minimum i should spend to be happy with my purchase, what to look out for in buying a bike would be gratefully received. I quite like the idea of doing duathlons, so i guess if i buy cheap, i`ll end up buying twice.
