Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
  • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
  • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.

I'm looking to get a bike. Is this a road bike or hybrid? Sorry I'm new to bike specs

Neither it is a city bike. Should be called a fashion bike. Its going to be heavy. If you don't know what you want a hybrid is probably your best bet
It's a decent looking bike but 3x7 gears is a faff and it doesn't look like quick release wheels. If it's Schrader valves ( like a car ) then I'd recommend filling tyres with slime to minimise punctures.

So you're saying tyres with Schrader valves are more prone to punctures !!
The valve type plays a part on the frequency of how often you get punctures ??

I think he is suggesting easier to get slime into Schrader valves. Presta valves do hold high pressure better hence high pressure tubes always have presta valves but it's not a big deal/difference for sub 80psi tyres.

Another great entry level bike, instead of going for a low speed weak freewheel they have at least fitted a freehub and 7 speed cassette which is much stronger, shifts more accurately, needs less maintenance and also is faster in its high gear. Seems an ideal simple commuting bike and the 3x7 drivetrain might need adjustment more frequently but will be able to tackle any hill.

In what way is 3x7 gears a faff?! Quick release wheels just make it more likely someone will steal them.

Road bikes have handlebars that curve downwards and back, they put your body close to the bike frame which is better for going extremely fast but it's tiring to hold that position. Good for long range empty road travel.

City bikes like this one have you sitting upright with the bars curving up and back. They're good for low effort low speed riding. If you're commuting by bike in a city or over a short distance I'd recommend one.

Hybrids come in many shapes and sizes but generally have flat handlebars and have you lean forward a bit but not as much as the road bike. They're a halfway house between a road bike and a mountain bike so they're pretty good choice if you're going to commute on your bike but also go off road in the countryside. Something like a Halfords Carrera Subway is a good example.
Decent bike for the money. Heat added.

So it doesn't have quick release wheels or the gears aren't quite ideal. So what? It's a 200 quid aluminium frame and it's pretty nice looking at the price. I swear elitist cyclists are the most insufferable breed of enthusiasts out there. No wonder they're universally hated by everyone else.

A friend of mine paid £249 a week ago for the better spec version of this from Rutland. Lovely bike.

The only downside was a right pedal that came with no thread but Rutland sent a replacement pair once told.

Edit:

Oops, my friend brought the male version of this which is called the Larkspur. I almost bought one myself.

No . I'm saying the advantage of Schrader valves is that the process iof filling with slime is simple. I was getting punctures every other week until I filled my tubes, haven't had one for over a year.

The chances are that you will find rattling or slipping on a few gear combinations and even if all 21 are working the constant changing up and down the front rings is a hassle.
Correct on the theft point I suppose. But advantage is that if you have a mechanical you can get your bike small enough for a boot without any tools.
Slipping? Only if badly adjusted or you fit a new chain to worn cassette.
Besides, the point of a triple is that you don't usually use the smallest chainring, so it's a double most of the time, but it means you can still have a close range on the cassette but still have a bail out granny gear for steep hills, as opposed to having the additional cost of an 11speed higher range cassette and a double.
If adjusted properly, a triple is far superior to a double, but unfortunately manufacturers are dropping triples to promote their 2x11 or 1x12 speed ranges which offer no real difference in ratios or benefit, but make them a lot more profit. And spare parts like chains and cassettes are a multitude of timesore expensive than 7 and 8 speed versions.
