Having commented on a number of bike threads I thought I'd risk stepping into the danger zone and posting this one myself!

Argos have reductions on a wide range of bikes at the moment but I picked this one out as particularly good value. It's a simple but nicely equipped ladies' road bike at a remarkable price. A rack and set of mudguards alone would cost £40 or more at a bike shop. I just replaced the tyres and tubes on my old MTB with nothing fancy and that was £40 for parts too!

Let's be clear up front on this one - it's not going to be the lightest or best built bike and it won't win any races, but that's not what it's about. It's not a bike for enthusiasts either. What it is is a basic bike (no silly suspension, etc) for getting to school, the shops or a little bit of gentle exercise. Six speed gears will be plenty for those purposes and they are Shimano so likely to be fairly reliable.

Take a look at the reviews. A few buyers had trouble with assembly (you need some basic mechanical competency for any bike) and a couple had damage on delivery (efficiently resolved) but the overwhelming majority were very happy (and presumably most paid £150 for it).

No doubt this post will attract its share of cheap bike haters and I do understand where they're coming from, but frankly at this price or even considerably more you're unlikely to do better (decent, branded bikes rarely come under the £200 mark, which is almost 3 times the price of this one and really in a different place in the market). The real alternative to a bike at this price isn't another bike it's the bus or walking! Maybe it'll even save a few car journeys (a couple of tankfulls will pay for it) and make the planet smile!

Of all the cheap bikes about this looks the most practical.

It appears to have alloy rims, metal brakes and levers.

Road tyres make sense too.
I still don't like cheap bikes but bikes like this often cost £150 so this is hot.

I'd probably buy a retro mtb on ebay for the same money though if it was me.

Sensible, balanced comment, thank you!
