Does it come with pedals ? Yes
Is it carbon ? No it's alloy with a steel front fork
**** cyclists? They have as much right being a road user as anyone else
It's not a grand plus? No it's made of steel for £225
Is it shimano ? Yes but no description
Halfrauds? Depends on the shop, my 2 local shops are knowledgeable and friendly

Sorry. Mobile app makes a hash of that.
Yeh. Better buying a Triban from Decathlon. Don't like the group set. How can you tide 7 speed?

thanks for the updates was looking for the details but missed it, the specification has an overview and them yet another link to specifics.. Seems a good price although RRP of £650+ seems too high

7 speed depends how fit you are I guess, the red Triban looked good at £199 but sold out, cheapest one is now another £55 on top

save up a teensey bit more and buy a Triban 500 from Decathlon or a Merlin Cycles PR7. Much nicer, long lasting components, and chances are will help you enjoy cycling.
