Where to buy a bike?

Hello everyone, well firstly I moved house on the 28/03/08 and have only just got the internet connected, and i have really really missed this site.

But the reason for my post is that its my partners birthday soon and I think I want to buy him an new bike, any advice and places to buy would be very helpful. I think he wants whats called a road bike or commuter bike and i only want to spend just over £100.

Thanks in advance.

i dont know if its nationwide but at my tesco they have mens bikes that are very good for just £40
Well i suggest you get it instore somewhere as ive ordered two in the past year one from the internet(tescos) and one mail order (Empire stores) and both arrived damaged so i think its a must to go get one yourself to make sure its ok
I have bought 3 bikes from my local JJb in the past 1 for myself and my partner and 1 for my partner all were in great condition and were built up ready to go out on the road and they had great deal on bikes from as little as £60 but it was the building and safety check that swung it for me
Take a look in Decathlon, you get excellent value for money and well trained staff to help you.
You can also take the bike saving on delivery charges.

no no no no no. dont buy these. I bought one after reading wha i thort wer just elitists telling me they wer unsafe. but the bikes are so unbelivably *****. just spend that extra money halfords have a dual suspension bike on offer for 80 quid. Bargain and not cheap tat.
do NOT get a dual suspension bike for commuting. heavy and hard work. Then again with a budget of £100, its still going to be heavy & hard work. Ok for a journey of 2 miles or less IMHO.
Thanks for your replys everyone. very grateful

With the odd bargin at http://www.wiggle.co.uk/

That the £40 bike that was mentioned? Seems pretty good to me, no suspension will make for a bumpy ride but it looks pretty basic and so I can't imagine much going wrong with it.
as said before if you are just using the bike on standard roads, having a dual suspension bike will make it a harder ride because of the extra effort needed. no suspension is fine for roads
Thanks again to everyone, i found a really good one on wiggle for £200. More than i wanted to spend but worth it. Thanks to everyone for your replys
