Just t hought I'd mention this - good enough deal that I've bought one! Normally £650, and now reduced to £400 for regular stock - the few flood damaged ones (which they say is at VERY worst cosmetic, maybe only box damage) are now going for £300.

As well as that, the Storm 1.0 is going for £500 which is also a bit of a bargain for a Shimano 105 kitted out bike. If you want to get into road cycling, this is about as cheap as it gets.

Great deal for that spec - only wish they had some 55cm frames @ £300 - I suppose I could always wear platform heeled shoes :oops: ?

What about the Briza, 55cm frame at £250 (47% off). A bit bright but a fine bike.

If I buy one and ride it in the rain will it be FLOOD DAMAGED ??? :?

Good saving...............HOT

Just a few worthwhile things missing - high on the list would be a carbon fork which makes it a lot more comfortable riding on rough tarmac. Also, I'm not a fan of Sora groupset - the shifters feel very plastic and the up shift is located in an inconvenient place if you use the drops a lot.
That said, probably better than the Halfords choices anywhere near that price.
Oh, no big picture included - here's one..

@Pealy

Yeah, I saw that one, but no carbon forks and a Sora groupset (which doesn't have a great rep) puts me off.

It's daft really - I used to ride & race quite seriously when I was a teenager, doing 8 - 10,000 miles a year and time-trialling or racing most weeks on a budget Bianchi (when they used to do budget bikes) from Halfords.

Now that I'm in my mid thirties I've somehow convinced myself that I now need something much better for my occasional weekend rides! I guess I've turned into one of those "all the gear, but no idea" blokes I used to take the **** out of when I was younger!

is it worth it's 300 price tag thou despite groupset and no carbon forks????

Sorry - think I'm causing confusion. The posted deal (BeOne Storm 2.0 @ £300) does have carbon forks and the Tiagra groupset (very good for the price).

Pealy mentioned another bike, the BeOne Briza @ £250. It's still a pretty good bike for the price but IMHO not such a good deal as the original post.

I would like to buy a road bike, I do not know too much about them..

I assume that this bike comes without pedals? If so what are the best pedals to go for (around £30 or less).

Thanks!

Bit more than you said you wanted to spend (£35) but these are pretty good pedal for the money:

Bear in mind that you'll also need to budget for a pair of cycling shoes and some cleats if they're not inlcuded (although the reviews suggest that these come with the cleats). These are one of the most important aspects of your cycling wear though - don't be tempted to use trainers on flat pedals you'd be ruining the experience of riding a decent road bike and riding less efficiently too.

Cheers for this been looking for a road bike for a while, ideal!!! Used to have a Specialized Sirrus, should have kept it really but this will be a great replacement. As you say Carbon fork and Tiagra is great for the price, the only question mark for me will be the wheels but i'm sure they will be perfectly fine.

Sorry slightly off track (ha ha) I know but have been looking for a hardtail for my 14 yr old. Would this be worthwhile?
BeOne Aspire 3.0 Hardtail Bike 2007 From £229.99

Any suggestions or specs I should be looking for would be gratefully received.
Thanks

I'd go for that if I had £300 quid.

Nice find.
#13
Looks a good bike, would be very tempted if I hadn't recently bought a Giant SCR3 for £370, which I couldn't fault:thumbsup:
