    Im quite knowledgable on bikes - its an ok deal, not an amazing spec, but should be good and solid, and i wouldnt say it is a mind blowingly cheap price.

    No vote from me, but i hope it suits someone

    I'm 5'10" and 13 stone - would this (a medium frame) be OK for me?

    I'm after a bike for occasional use on both roads and in my local (small) woods - the path there is fairly flat - I wouldn't be taking it "off road" so to speak.

    Any recommendations up to about the £300 mark would be much appreciated.

    Hot deal btw.

    Not wanting to appear to be a pretentious bike snob or anything but there's no asynchronous multithread crank I noticed... which is a shame.

    Plus there's no tri-polar gemini mechanism on it either which may result in some adverse effects at certain altitudes.

    I have one of these in Silver (2010 version though) Great bike all round bike particularly for going into town in etc (on the roads). I paid £250 back when it first came out (after an evans mix up, where the bike i ordered was actually out of stock so they let me have this for the same price, this was meant to be £389 at the time)

    You'd def want Large. I'm 5'11" and have the Large in this, and its certainly not too big for me at all.

    Hi, I'm looking for a bike to get around town at this sort of price. Thinking of a second hand Pinnacle Sentinel - what are your thoughts? Currently have a Kraken but its very very slow on heavy duty tyres.

    Edit. Ha ha didn't see someone else had already asked, perhaps you should start up an online consultacy :)



    Depends on what you want it for - the Pinnacal is an out and out road bike designed for grinding out the miles on long stretches of road. If your commute is just a couple of miles, this would be more fun, more comfortable, and id say the better option. Will be easier on the GT to nip in and out of traffic etc

    I'd agree, ive always found GT's to be a little on the small size with their geometry. if it was for nipping about it might be alright, but 13stone and quite tall it will feel quite stumpy.

    Something like thithe carrera Valour in 18" might be a very good shout - there's a good online offer on at the mo as well

    Had a few Carrera's myself and id stand by them. I have 6 bikes at the minute, including expensive full sussers, and i love mine

    Thanks for the replies and advice guys - a large it is then!

    As usual, fellow HUKDers very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Apologies for hijacking your thread OP - but anyone care to give their opinion on the best £300 (ish) bike for using two or three times a week for mainly roads but also some paths through woods? It will be a mixture of going out with the kids on their bikes and a bit of exercise.

    It also depends what your inside leg measurement is.

    You might want to use a size guide like that used on the Halfords website.

    This video from Evans Cycles might also help.

    Finally here is a little tip for anyone wanting to buy a new bike.

    I wanted a bike on the Rutland Cycles website and found that they also sell the exact same items on there ebay outlet for nearly 40% cheaper.
