You would need a new chainset (or replace the cogs) too. 11 speed chains are narrower so won't fit on 10 speed chainrings.

The consensus on bike forums is that 10 Speed Chainsets work fine with 11 speed chains. Example Link.

Personally I'd have a long think about whether the extra for the Tiagra was worth it and only go for it if I had the cash to spare. I have sora, tiagra and ultegra and whilst each is better than the last at the end of the day they all work OK.

Absolutely, but if a bike is used properly then I'd always consider things like cassettes as consumables. Depending on the miles done it may take a few years but eventually you'll be looking to replace some/all of the drivetrain and at that point I'd rather have the option of spending a bit more for a bit of an upgrade.

Won't make me go up hills any quicker ;) but at that point I'd happily spend £5 more to get a 105 cassette than Sora.

You wouldn't necessarily need new wheels - a lot of wheels made recently are 11 speed compatible and use a small spacer on the freehub to accmmodate the slightly narrower 9/10 speed cassettes.

Tiagra is 10sp though so easier to swap for 105/Ultegra bits when they wear out.
I think you might have just sold me on the tiagra version :p
105/Ultegra is 11 speed though. Only old stock would be 10 speed.
I'm not.... totally sure (computers are more my mastermind topic of choice than bikes) but I think most 10 speed setups would take an 11 speed relatively easily? If not, I can go about upgrading in a path that "works".

10 speed to 11 isn't too easy, only the chainset and front mech are really compatible and brakes obviously. You'd need new wheels, shifters, cassette, chain and rear mech, It'd probably work out cheaper to buy the whole groupset.

why compromise the quality of the other components for decent a disc setup if decent v breaks do a good job ? I.d be more worried about that cheap and nasty 2 bolt adjustable stem flexing a rider out of control.oO

I suppose, but why can't these bikes be fitted with disc brakes?
The frame/forks must support disc brakes.
Looking at the manufacturer webpage it doesn't look like the frame or forks have disc brake mounting tabs, nor do the hubs. So fitting disc brakes wouldn't be feasible.
Not that it's really a deal breaker on a bike like this one.
Isn't it? I'm not a professional rider or anything like, but to me disc brakes have such obvious advantages, I wouldn't consider a bike without. (and especially, as it doesn't even have mounting tabs) Just as I wouldn't consider a steel framed bike.
Unfortunately cheap disc brakes are usually worse than rim brakes. Secondly, a steel framed bike is not bad, IF it is made well. Steel is less stiff than aluminium so is far more comfortable to ride. A lot of money is spent on marketing so you think you need this and that on a bike. When really if you find a bike you enjoy riding that's all that matters.

Bit of generalisation here but bear with me....Strictly speaking steel as a material is stiffer than aluminium. It is however stronger so less of it/smaller tubing can be used for a given frame strength. Alloy frames often have to be made stiff as it can't survive as many flex cycles as steel/titanium before failing.

Plenty of replies by others that explain my thoughts on discs on cheap bikes. I'd also suggest you're wrong with a blanket decision to ignore steel frames. No one frame material is "best". You can make a cheap bad frame from Steel, Alloy and Carbon. Manufacturers that know what they're doing can make an excellent frame from any of those materials. You need to try a good steel frame to see what the fuss is about. A well made frame in butted 4130/Reynolds tubing etc is infinitely preferable to a boggo alloy lump fired out of a far-east copy shop.
I bought my son's bike from this company last month and would highly recommend them, very helpful and got a fab bike at a great price

So why don't they? Is there something wrong with having disc brakes on a quality bike?
Cost and a bike like this really doesn't need disc brakes.

Disc brakes add un-necessary weight. Supposedly better stopping power than rim brakes. Not worth the upgrade in my experience.
Lol. Weight junkies like you always crack me up. The weight added by disk brakes is minimal. Hardly much of a problem. Disk brakes offer far superior braking performance in the wet and also allow more modulation so you can control the braking power more.
There is a reason why the UCI will soon be lifting their ban on disk brakes and why the professional peloton will be using them within the next few year

I never mentioned about weight what are you talking about?

http://www.ukbikesdepot.com/m18b0s18p13417/ADVENTURE_Uni_Single_Speed_Mens_Bike_2014 £89.99 Their suggested price is £199.99 although if you check this link : http://www.winstanleysbikes.co.uk/product/58830/Adventure_Uni_2014_Bike
I think it's the missing picture of the bike going by description, at a price of £159.99
So at £89.99 still a decent saving. Haven't been able to take advantage myself due to cash shortage but maybe this is of interest to someone, also i'm no bike expert so have no idea the quality of this bike.
I'm just a value hunter.
Thanks to dickduck for original link.

The point I'm making is that Tesco do bikes for about £60 on special offer, so only a bike snob would suggest that a £450 bike is "entry level".
But they're not really bikes are they - just a similar shape! ;)

Different model name but looks very similar - one only available though with 15" (ie XS) frame.

I've decided I can't justify mine (19" - ie M) when I have several other bikes. Assembled and tried (in the dry) to make sure it's OK then stored in my garage. It's a lovely bike. PM me if you're interested.

Took our chances on the 17" frame for my wife (5'3") as her old bike was 16". Turns out I was able to perfectly match her riding position with the 16" bike. Looks like there's quite a lot of variation in these bike sizing charts which is confusing. Anyway, bike looks lovely, solid and is *much* lighter than her old one. Bargain at this price! Thanks again OP :)
Wonderful! Thanks for letting me know.
Bear in mind that new cables tend to stretch initially so if you find the gear change isn't smooth and crisp it can be as simple as just tightening the cable by turning the adjuster a little at a time until it's good. I in vested less than £30 in a bike maintenance stand last year and it makes it so much easier to set these things up. I even amazed myself by putting a set of EZ Fire shifters on an old bike and they worked perfectly. :3

Mine arrived a few days ago and have been out for a few short rides and must say it is a a really decent bike. Good frame and good quality components make it feel like a more expensive bike. I agree with Besford that a maintenance stand would have helped with the initial setup and subsequent adjustment (or an extra pair of hands). BTW I'm 5' 8" and the 17" frame is a comfortable fit. I guess I could have managed with the larger frame but I prefer a slightly more upright position.

The 15" now reduced to 159.99. Can someone advice what the min max leg length for this size? Many thanks.

There's a guide on their site though, as is usually the case, it's based on overall height, not leg length. I have a 19" frame with leg length 31" and it seems about right though I know a 17" frame would also work with seat post nearer max. I would guess (it is only a guess) a 15" frame would ideally cover something like a 26"- 30" leg but please don't rely on this. Maybe try a 15" for size in your local bike shop? Bear in mind this bike has a 700c wheel (ie larger diameter than 26" 'standard' wheel) and this will make a small difference to fit.

I wrote a review about them on a review website and they put a shirty reply on that too LOL. I did get the bike in the end (after 10 days)and to be fair there's not a scratch on it. Not over the moon with the way the brakes have been fitted (so tight the wheel doesn't go round properly) but we can sort that with a bit of adjustment. I've let them know so be interested to see if I get a curt email about that as well.
I ordered one 2 weeks ago and it has only just been shipped yesterday. I don't understand why it took so long. I'm not that bothered but it's still not great! Also their customer support via email wasn't the most pleasant but they did respond promptly. The bike should get to me today via TNT.
Beware. I ordered one over a week ago and it hasn't even been despatched yet. Sent an email asking where it was and then opened a PayPal dispute (not a claim) to facilitate communications. Got a really shirty email from them and also got told that it was originally going to be despatched today or tomorrow but because I had complained to PayPal it would now take longer!!!! Really poor customer service.
You always get one idiot. Heat from me.

Yes we were a little swapped before but this is because we are a small shop, in a small town in the middle of Yorkshire. We don't have the infrastructure and systems in place that the big boys have.

Thanks for the update - I remain a very happy customer and that's why I posted on here but you just can't please all of the people all of the time! By comparison with so many so called 'offers' posted on this site I think this is a real 'hot deal'.

PS beware what you post here yourselves - if HUKD deem it to be self promotion it will get spammed.

My experiences have been very different. I've had a few teething troubles with the bike, which seem to have been sorted now with a replacement bottom bracket. But ukbikesdepot have paid to have all the problems fixed - which meant two trips to my local bike shop. On the latter occasion, their credit reached my credit card statement before the payment for the repairs did. I'm sorry your experiences have not been so positive, but shysters and fly-by-nights? I think not.
I also have had nothing but good service from these people. Had a bit of a clunking noise coming from right pedal. Took it into their shop one Sunday and was told to go for coffee and they would ring when sorted. Less than 1 hour later they rang to say they had fitted 2 new pedals and a new shimano bottom bracket.Took it straight out for a 6 hour test ride up the canals and it was perfect. Top guys...top service...and no I have no connection with them apart from the good fortune of living quite close by.

how many kilos do you save over the aluminium alloy model? I hear that carbon forks can break when off road under severe pounding. Aluminium alloy is stronger.
There's not a lot in it TBH.
This model weighs just 10.1kg.
The Scott Scale 640 (alloy) weighs 10.9kg.

Bought this exact same bike in June last year. Chain broke after 15 miles and frame paintwork was flaking off a "NEW BIKE".
Very disappointed with this bike. Go for a Specialized or Cannondale for less money.
