Well spec'd bike with Claris groupset except chainset. Double wall rims, double pivot caliper brakes, cassette based rear wheel, mostly lightweight aluminium alloy components. Should be fast on the flats and easy up hills with its 24 gears. Also cartridge based bottom bracket.

On clearance and old stock. Dates back to 2014 but then the £ had more buying power then and this price is almost half the suggested selling price. Best bike I've seen for a while to go under £200.

At this price point you often see basic tourney gearing with a freewheel and generally inferior and unbranded components.

There are 2 factors regarding the value of this, firstly its discounted because its clearance but also bikes tended to have better component's fitted for their price a couple of years ago.

Choice of 3 frame sizes but low stock.

Features include a lightweight alloy frame, Triple chain-set for added gear ratios, deep section wheels increasing aero dynamics and Shimano Claris gear systems for fast efficient gear shifting.

Does anyone know the weight of this bike? Thanks

Boxed weight is claimed to be 15kg on amazon and a different bike with a 15kg boxed weight is 8kg but I would of thought normally a box is around 5kg with packaging so suspect about 8-10kg. Bigger the frame the heavier they get though as longer tubing and extra reinforcing but its only a minimal difference.

Actually further in the review of that viking bike it says its 10.9kg not 8kg so I guess the Cetus would be similar.

Argos states fully assembled weight of 14kg.

​Thank you everyone. That's great.

One of the figures will have to be wrong either amazon or argos as there is no way a box and its packaging is only 1kg and looking at the bike and its components I can't see it being 14kg but if weight is a critical figure for you I guess assume the heaviest figure.

I can fully believe this could be 14kg
