Only XL OOS - S, M, M/L, L are all in stock

Voted hot from me - plenty of bike for the cash - good entry into road biking. Still not convinced of disk brakes on a road bike though.

They can be a little bit fiddly to adjust depending on the model. That is why some people avoid mechanical discs brakes. IIRC one of the Avid models is a nightmare...BB5 I think

Found mechanicals better than rubber pads in the wet with a greasy rim.

I have had Avid BB5 on my Marin mountain bike from new and never had any issues with them.

£499 if you want to avoid disk brakes like me but Giant looks better IMHO

Yes I agree! The ones I have tried when test riding bikes have fallen short, hydraulic disc brakes on the other hand although slightly heavier stop in all conditions and if you are an elderly rider, barely take any squeezing on the lever to come to a stop. So it you have arthritis or do a lot of riding in wet/mucky conditions I would choose these!

I'm not going to comment on the 'greasy rim' ... too easy!

If you are having problems with the rubber pads, try SwissStop pads - made a world of difference on my road bike. http://www.wiggle.co.uk/swissstop/?sr=swissstop

Washed rims, went for the Swissstop greens in 2009 but some of the descents can be a bit nervey!

Using Rival X1 but huge price hike.

For a £500 bike, this is a good deal.

Not sure why this is cold?

Agreed. Much higher maintenance than rim brakes and not that much benefit.
