A good fast road bike use NUSJUN11 and save25 codes for a price of £208.99 Codes do work it's worth trying 2 or 3 times, or sometimes typing instead of pasting.

The disk model can be had for £244.49

Don't forget quidco currently a huge 7.8% for instore, Meaning the price is down to £192.69 and £225.49 for the disk model

These codes can also be used on my other deal

    ok..i went this afternoon to colect the Gryphon disc spec. i ordered in medium size. I found a very helpful guy at the store and clearly he knew what he was talking about. He explained that although the gryphon is classed as hybrid, it is more road bike and that was clear from the very thin tyres it has and also the agressive position when i rode it. As i am novice and i need the bike for leisure and a bit of riding around the town I ended cancelling the order..I am back to the drawing board now..anyrecommendations please? the guy at the store, who did not try to hard sell me anything at all, recommended the Vodoo and it was nice when i tried it but it is for £350. he also recommended the subway 2....any ideas please

    shame you didnt like the gryphon, for the price on offer no other bike can beat it.

    its a race frame but with flat bars so classed a fast hybrid, the tyres bwing 700x28c are thin but not as thin as the proper road bikes so these can handle pavements, tow paths etc

    if your looking at subways, go for the subway limited edition

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_786801_langId_-1_categoryId_165534#dtab

    with the voucher codes it come out pretty cheap too :)

    thank you for the advice...do you think it is better quality than the subway2? I noticed that the RRP of the Ltd edition was higher than the RRP of the subway 2 (eventhough i know how inflated their RRP)

    Good find, I've just ordered the carrera vengeance for £222 minus cashback, there doesn't appear many left so get your skates on, had carrera before and found them fine so ignore the lycra clad wannabe Chris Boardmans who think anything under £2000 is a waste of space, I'm more than happy with my buy for taking my child on rides on the cycle network and as I don't intend living on a bike it will do me.

    I went for the Subway 1 20" in the end, well pleased with it, better sized tyres for me, not as thick as mountain bike tyres but still pretty sturdy.

    Spoke to the guy instore who stated they were clearing old stock so there is limited availability. Picked up mine and I'm pleased with it, he was surprised they were going so cheap.

    Thanks for the help guys. Bought it on sat and had a good play! Love it for the price. My wife goes to the gym all the time and she cant keep up with me! She is on a old mountain bike though. Got 39.7 mph out of it today, never been that fast on a bike before. :)

    how - care to share the link/details?
    sam1970
    i used the two codes in the OP. Actually I had further £11 tracked through quidco so the final cost will be around £166. I cant see that bike on their website anymore so maybe only in store now

    does the SAVE25 code still work? I can't get it to work no matter how many combinations I try.

    I have just ordered this for 224.99 to collect (using 10% voucher) I intend to use it to ride the 4 miles to a from work everyday. I'm 5'11, weigh about 16.5 stone so as you can see I want to lose some weight and save some money - will this be a good choice? i was advised its better than a mountain bike? any advice gratefully appreciated

    I have the disk model of this bike. Very good for the road, not so good for off road though

    Just to confirm for the money Gryphon is amazing.

    Took it out on a 16 mile trip yesterday, me and my brother are normally very close. He had absolutely no chance yesterday I left him on pretty much every hill. Think he is a bit gutted as he has just forked out £550 on a GT mountain bike, and added road tyres. I was also very close to my other mate and he has a £1500 trek bike, and I know for a fact that he is fitter than me!
