In the USA the same make and model is sold in Walmart. So over there it is a 'bso'.
Lucky we live in the UK and they sell this bike in Wiggle - which makes it a 'proper' bike.
well, at least the wiggle wont make an ad photo with fork installed the other way. also in case of problems you can call or visit them and speak to someone who does have 'rough' idea about how to fix things or assess if something is missing from the package :)

Shame though the womens version is £30 more and has stupid red rims - otherwise would have got me mum one!
Personally I don't think I would ever get a man's frame again unless it was really really cheap*.
Just don't see any advantage to a bike you can't get off from easily.
Probably has a lot to do with getting a 21" frame which was a mistake for a hybrid (I'm 1.78m, and a different calculator now says to get a 19"-20" frama). However, if the frame had been a women's one, I wouldn't have any problem as the saddle is fine, it's just on a 21" men's frame I feel might not be able to jump off as quickly/safely as I should if I needed to. Now have a 19" framed Dawes I got used for £40 (* yes, still a men's frame but that's cheap enough) and feel far safer on it.
In theory a man's frame is stronger but then I never intend to crash headfirst into something.

mixed reviews on Amazon but good elsewhere so at that price I'll take a punt - nice one, thanks.
I'm becoming increasingly wary of warehouse deals after another one arrived incomplete. A sack barrow, without an axel - great. Not as bad as the massive gazebo I bought for our party in the summer.. it was missing several items that deemed it useless. What made matters worse was the previous owner had even circled in the manual which bits were missing!!

Anyway, I wonder why there are so many used ones available. I put one of the "three" available in my basket and that 1 is actually 10!

Does anyone know how much this bike weighs?
Says here it uses 6061 Aluminum as frame and weighs 9.52KGhttp://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/reviews/road-bikes/cannondale-caad8-2300
My knowledge of bike weights isn't great, but i'm guessing this would be without pedals installed.
Therefore, is this quite heavy? And is overall weight one of the most important factors when buying a roadbike (if price is an issue). Thanks guys x
The weight is fine unless you plan to cat race. More important is the frame fit for your style of riding and the gear range.

anyone actually know the weight of this bike?
just under 9kg I think
really ?
just found a reference on google to say its 9.24kg so its light enough unless you cat race in which case you probably have a more expensive bike already....
Can i see your reference?

Not a pro but love my bikes and this looks exceptionally good for the price.

I am getting back into cycling myself and have just got my first road bike in (ahem) a few years after having mtb's and hybrids of late.

I am now sad I just bought a boardman but there was no way I could leave the boardman at the price I paid!

Anyone recommend a good insurer btw?

(I also invested in the trcx smart blue motion turbo trainer this w/e. Yet to get it out of the box and set up anyone got one)
Looks pretty decent. Do you think a 58 would be a good choice for someone who is 6ft tall?

More than £600 for a pushbike without peddles. I blame Bradley Wiggins for all these bikers.

I'm too sensitive to dare ride a bike on the road these days. The arrogance of the few peltonians has increased the hate from motorists to all bikes whether they are kids or grandpas'.
Fault- Bradley wiggins.
Nope. Fault of the motorist if they treat everyone badly because of their experiences with someone else.
Too much of a generalisation anyway. There are idiots making their way about on all forms of transport. The trick is to not tar everyone with the same brush. Vast majority of people I encounter on the roads are perfectly fine.
It's a vicious circle, road users love to get self righteous about other groups. I'm a cyclist and a driver and can see the faults in all three groups-I'm not letting motorcyclists off scot free! :)

That's a bit unfair, there are idiots on BOTH sides, the problem nowadays is that everyone is so highly strung that the slightest error results in disproportionate anger :(
I would say the idiots are the same people with low temper thresholds. I've seen Motorists giving abuse to bikes because they can't get past a group and they had a bike roof rack fully loaded!

Utter bilge. My sister-in-law bought one of these for my nephew a few years ago and asked me to set it up. Cheap & nasty, stripped fasteners from the factory, bendy plastic brake levers, half a brake block missing (!), weighed about as much as the Forth Bridge.

Unrideable junk.
ideal bike for anyone who want their child to get bullied at school.
Not a bad bike for the money, though probably not suitable for serious bmxing

But where do you get a cheap turbo trainer to?

I got a similar bike on a deal similar to this from Tesco last year, still going strong for 70 quid although I had to change the brake pads pretty quickly and my wheels got stolen, great deal
I only use it for short commutes to work but does the job nicely
Someone stole your wheels off a £70 pound bike? wow thats getting pretty desparate....
To be fair I live in London where anything not chained up gets stolen and I did have Continental GP4000s on the wheels which were about 35 quid each
So they only wanted the tyres, but didn't have any levers on them. X)
Nah probably stolen to sell to on Brick Lane to some other mug who had their wheels stolen. I don't mind spending a little bit more on tyres as they are the only thing that's in contact with the road that helps me to stop

To be fair, I honestly dont think that someone could really complain paying £70 for this bike for light use. I'm sure that there are better bikes out there but obviously cost more. Some cyclists don't mind paying 1000's for their bike but 70 quid for a runabout isn't that bad. My Tesco bike paid for itself in its first month as I didn't have to buy a travel card to get to work and in all honestly gets me quicker to work than my £600 Specialized Sirrus hybrid bike.

Not sure about this bike but my Tesco bike had components that would have cost more to buy individually, eg my shifter/brake handles cost about the same if not more that the price I paid for the bike

Edit- as well as changing the brake pads quickly I also changed the tyres as one of the tyres had the steel wires starting to show after a weeks riding. Also I changed the seat after a year as it started to perish and the material split



​I see what they mean then get a used bike seems easier than all that hassle.Atl least ur pedals didn't fall off like mine from go outdoors a viking bike twice that happened. with a grand total of about 5 miles.

Just collected mine they honoured reserve price, took 25 mins to fix together. Very similar to a secondhand exercise I'm replacing due to I've worn out the tension belt and for £25 to replace belt this is a better deal and brand new. For a 44 year old lady with dodgy kneecaps this is totally sufficient for my needs. Cycles well better than expected agree with the computer thing very awkward to put on. Other than worth the £39.99 thanks for posting as saved me getting another one secondhand

I've called Start, the Axe Edge Veloce is 8.16kg for a 53, that's 740g lighter. Worth the £70 all day. I'm going for one!
Weight is pretty immaterial provding assuming the bike weighs no more than 10kg unless of course you Cat race. It's key to get a bke that has geomtery that's comfortable for you. The decathalon bikes are good but have quite a low head tube.


​was just about to comment the same thing. A cup of tea and some toast before a ride will be roughly 0.5kg so ultimately unless your bodyweight is below 60kg stop panicking about grams and shift some pounds.


Likewise on what you carry with you. I ride MTB and see guys worrying about saving 1/2 kg on a new frame and then see them fill a 3 litre camel back and chuck it in their pack. 3 litres of water adds 3kg!

So my question is do I jump in for the bikes element too - no where near completed the cars/tracks and wonder, if albeit small payment, if I should do so.
The Season Pass is just that (a collection of DLC, not all). You still need to own the game itself, whether it be on disc or in digital format.

Same here if I bought the season pass would I not need the disc version then?

Example play the full game without the disc in the PS4?

Seems like a really good deal if the season pass also includes the base game.


​ok I think that this is season pass only, reason being when I try to lunch game without disc I have a message that one is needed.
​yes it definitely does work. I have physical version and when I am in game and go to store page from games menu I have all seaon car packs listed and these are showing as purchased. I have not driven any yet as I have only started this game and most of the cars are locked lol.

i have base game and i have just got this season pass. do I own the same game twice. can I sell box version now? i have played it for few minutes only and graphic is average and 30 fps hmmmm I will give it a chance but after playing forza at 100 fps dsr 1440p on 144hz monitor this looks like a step back.


Yeah this is really confusing me because on the season pass above it, it says driveclub full game , but then in the same sale
Section on the store there's another driveclub for PlayStation plus full game which is more expensive. So it's god my head in a bit of a spin. I'd buy the season pass now if I knew that I was getting everything I needed to play

Admittedly I do struggle with the common sense of the average person. I'm a cyclist, motorist and walker. There really are some moronic drivers and cyclists.

Unfortunately I see way too many cyclists using no or pointless lights. When it's clear that they have spent a load on their bikes and gear.

29ers becoming very niche now. Mine is great for speed and even holds up well on the road but not great on anything remotely technical. Means I just need another bike!
I bought a Cube 29er two years ago for a winter bike. It was about £500. It's been great - fun to ride, laughs at pot-holes and just ploughs through crap weather - 3 times a week to work on it! Pump the Schwalbe Smart Sams up to 60 and it goes reasonably quickly!

Low 100lm: 8 hrs
Hyper 400lm: 8 hrs
Flash 100lm: 20 hrs

Hyper is low light mode with a brighter flash.

Don't confuse this with the lower spec 400XC.
2.1% Quidco and probably TopCashBack too.

On Offer here £34.95 http://www.onyerbike.co.uk/bike_accessories/cateye_volt_400_lumens_front_bike_light
for 400xc at my local, what's the difference between this and 400xc?

I have the 700 volt version and love it. Mainly use is on the ~400 volt setting and find that absolutely fine.
Is that a more powerful version? My husband commutes on a bike and he's been asking for a new light for ages. x
Yes, the Volt 700 is a 700 lumen light, but hotrod2 is saying he mostly uses it on the 400 lumen setting.
The light in the OP is 400 lumens on its max setting (not bright enough for mountain biking at night but bright enough for unlit roads).
The more lumens, the brighter the light but the shorter the battery life.

Thx! He only cycles on unlit roads and not offroad so this sounds perfect. X

Some of the Planet X lights are fantastic for the money - Moon clones
Heads up that PlanetX have an end of season sale on Knog lights. I bought some yesterday.Lots of smaller Knogs at £10-£15

They look nice for smaller lights, but the brightest I can see is only 220 lumens - I'm not sure that's enough for a unlit canal towpath. And its battery life is only 1.3hours on that setting - that's enough for me to cycle along the canal to Clydebank... and then I'm in Clydebank in the dark! It'll be like the blitz all over again!!

I realise everybody needs something different from a light - for me this one seems to represent the best compromise between light output (I really don't need the 1000 lumen lights mountain bikers use) and battery life (3 hours at 400 lumens should be enough for my night-time jaunts along the canal/old railway line).

Lucky now to have enough light to dazzle oncoming traffic, the old EverReady lamps use to take two big D batteries front and back and rattled unless you packed them with cardboard.They lasted about 3 hours and gave enough light to slightly illuminate 3 feet ahead.Those were the days.
deal-hunter The lamps were similar to them but the front reflector was in the middle and the rear was length wise with the reflector on the end.

I saw £79.99 and assumed you mistakenly put that instead of £7.99... why would you pay this much for bike lights is beyond me
​Because that's how much decent lights cost.

Only because people will pay it. Bike stuff if way over-priced because people become obsessive about their hobby.


​Or because of supply and demand?
Ahh, I remember riding the trails with a pair of these bad boys!

Now I run something a little more up to date. I have some cheap China imports and am not impressed with the battery life at all. But the one's I bought from C&BSeen have stood the test of time and the UK weather (3 years and counting). Had a quick look on their website, and they have the City Slicker, a 1250 lumen light with the batteries inside the unit (removable casette). A claimed run-time of 3.5hrs on max power too. This is the nearest comparison product to the one posted, and can be bought for £54 + about £6 postage. I run a single 1200lu unit on the bars with a diffusion lens, and a spot on my helmet - great combo for night ride XC.

I'm not on their payroll, but I do recommend them a lot! Good British company who you can contact if there are any issues.

why try getting yourself killed by dazzling everyone else on the road, cars can dip thier lights, bikes just dazzle other road users and think thats fine

These are for off road use. You're right though every motorist I encounter is perfect.

Never seen a motorist not indicate, drive with one headlight - which then dazzles everyone else, foglights when you don't need them, no lights when you do, driving within the speed limits and conditions, using a mobile phone, texting, drink / drug driving, running red & amber lights, not using their mirrors etc



​yes i agree with your comments on "perfect" car drivers, i only have one observation on it

i have seen women drivers do most of whats in your comments, but its to be expected as its a known fact men are the safer driver (_;)

Anything you like... don't use it on your rim...it might irritate the skin.

Personally it's a great road/mtb cassette cleaner - not the audio type smarty pants!

Spray on to cassette and gently rinse.

Keep away from brake disc/pads/rims etc.

My mam and dad never bought me a bike with suspension and they never bought me a lightweight bike. I was brought up in Wales and used to go biking through the forests and up and down steep hills. The chain used to come off and you learnt how to sort it out. The brakes would stretch and you learnt how to sort that. I loved my bikes and they were not these super bikes that that purists are saying you NEED to have or else your child will hate biking. Now don't get me wrong some kids will not want to do maintenance on their bike but just think of the practical hands on education they will get if they do need to do some maintenance. I have a feeling that all these bike snobs have forgotten that once upon a time they did not have this £2000+ bike and they started on some piece of tat and now love their more expensive bike.

​On this occasion he has a point. This is a £45 bike at best. For the RRP you'd have to be mad not to buy a Specialized or other quality brand instead.
How exactly did you come up with the conclusion that it is a £45 bike at best? Have you or your children had experience riding this?
A rating of 4.6/5.0 indicates it is a pretty decent bike.
Would you please recommend other options at this price for the same size?
​Its a pile of rubbish.
I wouldn't buy a sack of rubbish even if it were cheap! Same logic here. Terrible. Easily find rigid 2nd hand bikes at this price.
Please help us find "these EASY to FIND" bikes.. Your statement of its rubbish doesn't matter as people who have bought the bike for their kids, are happy and have rated it 4.6/5.00.
If i have to choose between a random statement vs. people who have bought a bike and have rated it, I would happily accept the opinion of the latter, as that is more meaningful!
Would I take the word of random people who shop at Tesco's who likely know next to nothing about bikes, and have passed this to their kids who again likely know nothing about bikes, or the word of someone who works with bikes for a living, and spent many a happy day out riding from being a very young age, who has also been able to get my children into riding also?
Look, you have clearly made your choice to give your little one this bike and I truely hope they enjoy it and get into cycling, but trying to pretend that this is anything other than scrap is dilusional.
A lot of children are put off biking because of the scrap metal their parents bought them when younger - thinking it was cheap and had a nice paint job. Only to find that it was in fact not even worth the £45 they had paid as it laid unused for years in the garage.
To give you some context of how cheap and nasty this bike is, it is hard to find a pair of decent tyres for the price of this whole bike ... what corners were cut in its making?
Hopefully, this post and the others above may not convince you not waste your cash on this item as your mind is clearly made up, but it hopefully provides others with some information they can use to inform their purchasing decision for their little ones.
As for teh challenge to show where the easy to find bikes are - I would start here http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=20+bike&_sop=15
Easy enough - just one google search away :)
EDIT: In fact, just get this - only £10 ... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Boys-DAWES-Redtail-Bike-20-Inch-Wheel-RED-Approx-Age-6-8-/252721542359?hash=item3ad760b4d7:g:v0IAAOSw5cNYd4II
Here is what i inferred from your comments:
1. Tesco don't make bikes so don't buy it. Halfords don't make bikes either... Most of the time it is relabelling by major retailers. Hence i suggested earlier to try to understand how retail sector works. You'll learn a lot. I have spent 15 years consulting for retailers so I know a bit or two about how and why you can some times get massive price drops.
2. This is a £45 bike, and because you cann't get a £45 bike elsewhere, don't buy it. What you fail to understand is that this was a £160 bike. Had Tesco offered you the same for £135, you would have happily bought it.
3. You suggest that you have more experience than the 15 odd parents who bought this bike for their kids, and have bothered to rate it too. Your comments should be take more seriously because apparently you can find a £10 bike with your superior searching skills.
4. You believe everyone who doesn't ride a £1000 bike doesn't have a clue on what Bike means.
Dude, this is a bike at £45. On Hot Deals UK, we post deals. Is this a good deal on Price - Yes? Is this a Bad Deal on Quality - ? From your perspective yes but you have neither provided a single bad review about the bike, neither given any evidence to your comments.
And then you ask why people don't take your comments seriously.

1. What? It wasn't me talking about who manufactured bikes - suggest you point your so called learnings at them
2. I think you fail to understand that that bike is really not worth £45 and certainly not £160 - I provided you with a great alternative for £10, so not sure I get your point
3. My comment was that the 15 or so people you are referring to are 'unlikely' to be riding it giving that they are likely to be the parents - all I have done is try and help to point out why it may be worth buying something better
4. I do not believe I have ever said this, especially as I pointed out a £10 alternative along with a brand new bike for under £100, but lets not let facts get in the way of a good story ...

At the end of the day, you appear to be dead set to try and prove me wrong - why I do not know as this isn't about right or wrong, just opinion. I have no interest in buying this scrap metal, but I thought I would help save others some cash by letting them know that there are better alternatives - as always, it is all about choice ... you can choose to listen or choose not to. Same as I now choose to stop discussing this with you as there is an old saying "never argue with an idiot, as they will beat you with experience every time"

Hope your little one enjoys the bike you have bought.
.. Let's also be clear- I won't be responding to you again. I have better things to do

Can't get decent pair of tyres for less than £45? You're kidding right?!?!?!? And you wonder why people don't take your advice seriously...
We clearly have a different view of what 'decent' means - I would suggest that it is at least a dual compound tyre for anyone doing trail riding on a MTB. You can get Racing Ralph's and Nobly Nics for just under £40, but its false economy as they both wear really quickly.
A kid's bike is mainly used for pootling round the park and back, not for competition or touring....you do know that don't you?!
Perhaps with an attitude like that that's all they'll ever aspire to too. Plenty of kids race bikes actually.
And more don't. I aspire for better things for my kids than that, personally. I certainly don't aspire for them to think if they don't spend £45 on the bicycle tyres, they may as well not bother - or to grow up to think you have to spend lots on things and look down on those who don't.
"Aspire for better things"? You're now disparaging bike racing? Delightful!
Let's be clear, I'm disparaging rude and arrogant "bikists" like you who put the rest of us off cycling.

It can help in training and whilst racing, on a long event (a 6 hour Ironman leg for example) it can be used to pace yourself and not overdo it. A cheaper way is just to use a heart rate monitor but in long events cardiac drift can effect your heart rate anyway so isn't an ideal measure.

or buy the cheaper one sell the brakes and wheels, then buy the better parts, I myself built my planet x rt57 with ultegra 6800 groupset and aksium wheels and deda elementi bars stem, fizik saddle etc for 840 pounds total but that took alot of ebay searching plus scouring of the internet for the best deals. You could save alot of time and effort by buying this deal and upgrading the parts, selling the excess bits off.
.... Having said all that I don't have the new bottom bracket tools only retro-stuff... Also not sure about the headset / fork size? Why do they have to keep changing headsets and bottom brackets? :D

every tool you will need is there other than a torque wrench and hacksaw

http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/TOJW41PCTK/jobsworth-pro-41pc-swap-shop

.. i have seen this toolset for as low as 25 pounds if you search it out. bb spanner can be bought for 8 pounds separately if you wanna go that route, you need a plastic insert which costs about 2 quid also, usually supplied if you buy the chainset separately or borrow one from the local bike shop(sometimes they give them away for nothing)

headset drops in, and you cut the steerer tube to be a few millimeters below the level of your spacers/stem and compress with the Planet X Carbon Steerer Fork Bung before tightening the stem with the torque wrench.

or buy the cheaper one sell the brakes and wheels, then buy the better parts, I myself built my planet x rt57 with ultegra 6800 groupset and aksium wheels and deda elementi bars stem, fizik saddle etc for 840 pounds total but that took alot of ebay searching plus scouring of the internet for the best deals. You could save alot of time and effort by buying this deal and upgrading the parts, selling the excess bits off.

I totally agree. Bought a load of stuff off eBay to rebuild my old Orange Dynamo, took a while and some patience but I quite enjoyed it tbh... It's amazing the sort of kit you can pick up for not much money if you do your research.

Pipecutter is better than a hacksaw for cutting steerers. Mind and measure twice. Not sure what the reference to crown ring is, but a headset can carefully be inserted with a mallet. Most crown races are split now so easy to install and remove. I'd probably advise against self-build unless you have the tools and have some idea of what you are doing.


​I'm assuming this has a carbon steerer, in which case the pressure from a pipe cutter would possibly de-laminate the the carbon and weaken it.

Assembling your own bike isn't for everyone but I for one have always enjoyed doing it and find it immensely satisfying. Apart from a crown race setting tool and hacksaw to cut the steerer to length, all the other tools you need, you'll need anyway for carrying out routine maintenance owning a cyclo-cross/gravel bike. 18 piece Shimano tool set from Planet X £21. Cable cutters £5-10. Torque wrench £25. Hacksaw £5. Ask your local bike shop to fit the headset crown race, mine do it for free (takes less than 30 seconds) and if your not confident cutting the steerer, ask your dad or consult the oracle - YouTube!

Most local bike shops will build it for you for 50 pounds upwards. As it takes a few hours to do it properly its well worth it rather than ballsing it up yourself.

One of the biggest problem for bikers like me is all the A***eholes on their phones whilst driving. It is plain to see they have little idea what is really going on around them - especially at junctions, roundabouts etc.

Scary how common this still is.

I'm sorry but I just don't get it, why should drivers have to keep looking out for these **** bikers who weave in and out of lanes or think they have the right to ride down the middle of the road.
You SHOULD be looking out for ANY hazards - bikers or others and as for riding down the middle of the road, I presume you're referring to bikes filtering between lanes? Well that's perfectly legal and if you are going to switch lanes, then you ought to be looking in your mirror and your blind spots
No, I'm talking about bikes going straight down the middle. In a non existent middle lane, why should i have to look out for them. We all get stuck in traffic but us drivers don't decide to drive down the middle of the road. Furthermore you don't pay anywhere near enough road tax. These stickers should be changed, Think bike, think **** driving down the middle of the road.
I think you must be trolling as I can't believe anyone really could have an opinion as dumb as this...
why? are you saying it doesn't happen?

Yeah it happens, there are good and bad bike riders just like there are good and bad car/lorry/bus drivers.
If car drivers were a little more courteous and moved over a little then there is plenty of room for a Bike to slip down the middle without causing offence to anyone...chances are you'll even get a courteous thank you wave back from a Biker if you do.
You need to get past this 'us and them' thing you have going on in your head...most Bikers are car drivers as well you know. You just come across as bitter because they can get through the traffic and you are stuck in it in your superior car.
when a Biker IS riding down the middle between lanes you can bet that his/her concentration level is 100x higher than the car driver sitting in traffic playing with the car stereo / mobile phone etc...oblivious to the world around them.

Bikers are people just like you and just like me, the sticker is just saying spare a thought for another human next time you make that right turn, just because you don't like bikes..don't overlook the fact it's someones son/daughter/husband/wife/child...

As for road tax, bikes cause no traffic jams yet still pay far mor eroad tax than most cars due to the old style taxaion classication of bikes based on engine size alone. Unlike cars CO2 figures aren't used to calculate tax on bikes meaning they invariably pay far more than they should.

im gonna grab as many of these as i can to keep in my pocket when i ride... then when some berk inevitably sooner-or-later nearly kills me (i have developed super psychic senses to pre-emptively prepare for such occasions) i can grab out a handful and slap them across the windshield.

i am also amazed at the volume of people that, after staring at me deer-in-headlights style, fully aware they would have caused a potentially fatal accident were it not for my evasive maneuver, go into a secondary panic mode and attempt to drive off as quickly as possible when i then attempt to go and explain what they've done wrong and how to avoid doing it again in future...

​probably need to fill pockets and panniers. I'm amazed at how many car drivers seem to deliberately try to kill filtering bikers

why? are you saying it doesn't happen?

The bike, or bicycle as it otherwise known, is by far the most popular and most widely produced vehicle in the world. Great for sport, recreation and fitness, bikes are also used by courier services, military, and police for work. Today, there's a whole wide world of different bikes available, at a wide range of prices. The choice can seem overwhelming, which is why we've compiled some of the best deals to be found online, here at HotUKDeals, to help our customers make an informed choice.

Two Wheels Good, Four Wheels Bad

A beautifully simple invention, the pedal-driven frame with two wheels has become iconic in itself and the bicycle's basic configuration and shape has changed very little since the first chain-driven models were created in the late 19th century. There have, however, been many improvements on the small details, even more so since the technological developments of the 20th century, such as plastics and computer-aided design, have taken hold. These developments have allowed for the improvement of specialised designs for different types and styles of cycling. The invention of the bicycle has had a huge impact on society, both in cultural terms and in terms of advancing modern technological and industrial methods.

The Different Types of Bicycle – The Pros and Cons

Road bike – Designed for travelling on paved roads at speed. Road bikes are built for endurance rather than fast bursts of speed, and as such they usually feature large numbers of derailleur gear combinations, narrow tyres and a lightweight frame.

Pros:

  • Agile and light, designed for speed.
  • The "over-the-handlebar" position allows for maximum leg power and an aerodynamic shape.
  • Tall, narrow light wheels reduce friction on the road.

Cons:

  • Not as hardy as a mountain bike.
  • Slow riding is difficult due to the high gear range.
  • The seating position can become uncomfortable for the rider's wrists and neck.

Mountain bike – Also known as All Terrain Bicycles, these are designed for cycling off-road. The features include strong, wide gauge treaded tyres, highly durable wheels and frames, and a cross-wise handlebar, which helping when riding over bumpy terrain.

Pros:

  • The sturdy frame and small components are made to withstand a lot of wear and tear.
  • The suspension allows far more control as the tyres remain in contact with the ground.
  • The geometry of the frame gives good traction to steep climbs and loose dirt or mud.

Cons:

  • Heavier than road bikes, and it is tougher cycling uphill as a result.
  • The suspension takes some efficiency away from the pedal stroke.
  • The smaller wheels mean more rolling resistance.

What You Need to Know About Mountain Bikes

Commuter bike – These are designed specifically for the daily commute over short or long distances in cities and towns. The typical commuter bike features 700c wheels with light tyres, derailleur gears and a carrier rack. A properly equipped commuter bike also features front and rear lights for use commuting in the early morning or evening. Some commuter bikes are also foldable, which is great for those who lack space at work.

Pros:

  • Good all-rounders, combining speed with durability and comfort.
  • A great way to exercise and lower your carbon footprint.
  • Perfect for everyday use in towns, cities and even between villages in more rural areas.

Cons:

  • Not as tough as a mountain bike.
  • Slower than racing bikes.
  • Can sometimes be on the heavy side.

Single speed bike – These bikes have just one gear and are designed for cycling relatively short distances, over relatively flat terrain. With some single speed bikes, the pedals can, or sometimes must, be pedalled backwards to slow down, in lieu of a brake attached by cable to the handlebar.

Pros:

  • They require less maintenance than more complex, multi-geared bikes.
  • Having fewer components makes them more a more affordable option.
  • The low number of components also makes them fairly lightweight.

Cons:

  • The lack of gears means riding uphill will be more difficult.
  • Not as versatile in terms of the terrain they can be ridden on.
  • Low power output and pedalling efficiency.

commuter bike

BMX bike – Standing for “bicycle motocross“, the BMX was originally designed for BMX-racing and is now used in park, street, dirt and flatland racing, as well as the famous, BMX Freestyle, where racers push the stylistic limits of the sport. The BMX has had something of a cult status in popular culture since the 1970s.

Pros:

  • They are an affordable choice, at around half the price of a mountain bike.
  • Lightweight, transportable and fun to ride.
  • Not too much servicing or maintenance is required.

Cons:

  • Not great for long commutes to and from work.
  • Less comfortable than commuter bikes as they weren't designed for "in-saddle" riding.
  • Going uphill can be arduous.

Cyclocross bike – Specifically designed for cyclocross racing, these bikes are designed to endure the rigours that the race demands. Cyclocross bikes look very similar to racing bikes, with the major difference being the geometry of the frame and the wider tyre clearances that a cyclocross bike has.

Pros:

  • Highly versatile. You can ride it on dirt or pavement.
  • Relatively inexpensive when compared with mountain bikes.
  • Great in all weathers.

Cons:

  • Heavier than a mountain bike.
  • Not as aerodynamic as racing bikes.
  • The brake power is somewhat diminished (unless you have disc brakes).

Electric bike – With an integrated electric motor used for propulsion, which is powered by a rechargeable battery, the electric bicycle, or e-bike, ranges from those with small motors which merely assist the pedal-power of the rider to those with more powerful motors which lean towards a more moped-like functionality. The key factor is that electric bicycles all have the ability to be solely pedal-powered, and therefore, they are defined as electric motorcycles.

Pros:

  • Cheap to run, costing just a few pence to charge the battery fully.
  • Quicker, safer and more controlled than pedal bikes and with faster acceleration capabilities.
  • Fun to ride and no need for a license or MOT.

Cons:

  • They're a more pricey option starting at around £500.
  • Heavy to pedal or push when the battery runs out.
  • The higher cost can make them a potential target for thieves.

Kid's bike – A bike fuels a child's imagination in many ways, allowing them to explore their environment. Designed especially with the needs of small children in mind, children's bikes come in various sorts, ranging from balance bikes, which don't have brakes or pedals, all the way up to replica racing and mountain bikes on a scaled-down size.

What You Need to Know About Road Bikes

Getting Your Head Round the Parts of a Bike

When you start looking for a new bike, you'll soon begin to encounter a whole world of jargon and terminology and it can become a little daunting. Here's some information about some of the main specifications of a bicycle's component parts.

Frames – The skeleton of a bicycle and a part that's largely remained unchanged since the bike was first invented. The frame can be made from a variety of materials, including hi-tensile steel, aluminium, carbon fibre, titanium, or even more unusual materials such as bamboo or wood.
Forks – The part that connects a bicycle's front wheel with its frame and handlebar, therefore allowing for steering.
Gears – The mechanism that moves the bike's chain, mostly using a cable, between the sprockets on a chain ring or sprocket assembly.
Brakes – Essential for slowing down, there are various types including rim brakes and disc brakes, which are operated by levers, and coaster brakes, whereby the rider must pedal backwards to operate them.
Wheels – The metal spoked parts that give a bike movement. Some bicycle wheels are “quick release“, which allows for removal and attachment without using a spanner.
Tyres – In most cases, bicycles use inner tubes which are glued to the rim of the wheels and then inflated. Tubeless tyres are, however, becoming increasingly common.
Handlebars – Attached via the fork to a steering tube, to let riders steer and to provide space for accessories and controls.

What to Think About When Buying a Bike

If you walk into a cycle shop or search online and it's very easy to quickly find yourself lost in the sheer number of choices. There are some factors to bear in mind, and questions to ask yourself when buying a bike to ascertain whether or not this is the right bike for you.

What sort of rider are you? – Be realistic, but don't underestimate yourself either. Are you a recreational cyclist or an enthusiast? Will you be going cross country or travelling in urban areas? The more you know when you go to make a purchase, the better equipped you'll be to make an informed choice.
What's your budget? – The price of bikes can range from under £100 to way up above £10,000 for very professional models. If money is no object, then that's great, but for most people getting a good bike at an affordable price is an important factor. When you know what you'll be using your bike for, it's easier to shop around for a good deal.
Get the right saddle – This is another important factor, not just for general comfort when riding but also for the health of your back and neck. Cycling, especially over longer distances, can be uncomfortable with a saddle that's ill-fitted to your shape. Women and men have differently shaped pelvises, so saddles are ideally different for the sexes. It's also important to adjust the saddle to your height.

Pimp Your Bike – Accessories for Your Two-Wheeled Friend

You can really make the most out of your bike by choosing the right accessories for your tastes and requirements. There's a whole world of accessories available for your bike, ranging from safety features to maintenance and repair, to storage to the purely aesthetic. The appropriate accessories also depend on the type of bike you have. Some of the main ones are listed below:

Baskets – Great for commuter bikes or single speed bikes, especially if you don't want to carry a bag while you’re cycling.
Bells – Good for alerting pedestrians who aren't paying attention to your presence.
Helmets – A very important accessory and, in the case of an accident, a potentially life-saving one.
Lights and reflectors – It's illegal in the UK to cycle without lights on a public road in the hours of darkness. While this law is not always policed, they remain a very important and common sense safety feature to have for your own protection.
Hi-visibility jackets and strips – They may not be the most stylish accessories, but you'll definitely be seen in the headlights of any passing cars after dark.
Locks – It's important to have a good lock as, unfortunately, bikes are common targets for opportunistic thieves. Many cyclists, in fact, have one for each wheel.
Child seats – For carrying the little one safely and securely on your bike.
Kick stands – Helping to keep your bike upright when parked.
Toe clips and straps – Designed to keep your feet in place on the pedals, preventing slippage.
Cycling power meters and cyclocomputers – For measuring the rider's power output and calculating trip information, respectively.
Tool kits – Specialised, portable tool kits for basic repairs and maintenance, often including a thin wrench and a puncture repair kit.

Where to Buy Bikes Online

From specialist bike retailers to major supermarket chains to online retail giants, there's a wide range of sellers online who stock a variety of different bicycles. One of the UK's best-known bike and bike accessory shops is Halfords, and they're always worth checking out when it comes to anything bicycle related. In the last fifteen years Wiggle has also become a major force in UK bike retailing. Supermarket turned retail giant Tesco stock a range of bicycles, as do the UK division of Walmart, Asda. High street favourite Argos also provides bikes at good prices, and of course, you can also find a wide selection at online retail behemoth Amazon.

The Best Time to Buy a Bike

While there's no official "best time" to purchase a bicycle, there are certain times of year when you can save money and get a good deal. Every year in September (or around that time) most of the major bike manufacturers release their newest models. Many bike shops will be looking to clear out the old to make room for the new, meaning lower prices. It’s a good option if you don’t mind having last year’s model.

You can also get a good deal on a new bike during the traditional (and also the more recent) annual sales. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas and the January sales are all good times to look because not only are the retailers competing for your custom, the winter is the "off-peak" season for cycling and many bike shops are simply looking for business.
