Mens bike for road use

I'm looking to buy a new man's bike for use on the lovely red routes that Milton Keynes has to offer, to replace my cheap old tired bike. Also for occasional use off road.

I am looking for something decent, very reliable and good to ride. Top price would be about £250. Certainly looking for something safer than a £40 Tesco bike ;-)

I've been told this is a good time to buy a bike as shops try to get rid of this year's models. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!! :thumbsup:

If you are using the MK redways look out for the idiots that are reported to be stringing wire across them:

Yes I saw this recently on the news - thanks for the heads up. Shambles what todays youngsters see as a fun thing to do...

That bike looks good to me, but I am very much an amateur. What sort of things should I look for? One bike looks very much the same as the next to me :)

Looks an ideal choice. Well known and trusted make, too.

feel free to pm for bike related advice.

If you are not into the tech-fiddling side of bikes, I would reccomend you buy from a respected local bike shop.

You can negotiate some free services and build a relationship with them - theyll be happy to keep your bike running by doing the odd free adjustment that way.

If however you ARE into fiddling with bikes, I thoroughly reccomend the secondhand market.

Bikes which are £1000 new sell for £300 a year later because some spoilt 14yearold decided its not in fashion anymore.

like I said, pm me for any specific info.

I like these people because they check and assemble the bike before despatch. I've bought from their special offers a couple of times. The Trek 4500 at £250 delivered looks good value... see review.
