Very good bike for the money. I got one a year ago for £800 and its a real steal at this price.

Apex is a very good groupset.

The only downside to this bike is the wheelset is bloody heavy.

Hot deal, I picked up the CX Comp a couple of months ago and am very happy with it, would have had this like a shot had it been this price.

Front Mech is an odd choice.

Wheelset isn't designed for climbing the Alp's, like any 32 spoke, its durability that counts on a CX of this type (and price).

Regardless, as that price its a bargain for commuting or light CX.

Irrelevant.

You don't need hydraulic on this bike with those tyres. Rotor size is much more important any way.

What has tyres got to do with hydraulic/mechanical disc brakes?

Enjoy!

The disc brakes are fine when set up properly and can stop my 16.5st carcass on near 50mph decents.
I have just bought a spare wheel set ( 0.55kg lighter) to use this bike in road mode for the summer and its great at climbing now.
Also did swap the front mech to a Sram Force as the microshi7 one is well, shi7.

Maybe, however hydraulic and nigh on maintenance free apart from the annual bleed. Also in my experience mechanical disk brakes always tend to play up whether it is the caliper or the cabes I have no idea. But BB5s are meant to be decent.

It's a heavy lump of a bike though isn't it

I remember the days when you just needed Shimano gears to be cool. Looked better in Lycra then too.

In my experience they judder more. But that could be the crappy ones I had.

great bike. ideal for commuting. stick continental four seasons on it 700x28 and it will keep up with many road bikes

Real Steal - that would be a heavy frame wouldn't it?

Could have made the thing a lot lighter by specing some decent wheels, lighter bars, seat and post.
Once you have put mudguards and peddles on it will add up

They could have saved a few grams here and there, possibly made it more expensive too.
Then you sit on it and it's all a waste of time.

A few grams is everything;-)
And you might as well ride a £99 BSO if weights not an issue

Perhaps they were implying they add weight rather than meaning mechanical are not as good as hydraulic, since the comment they replied to was all about the weight?

Your comment was presumably intimating about the stopping power of mech/hydaulic, there's no point in having crazy stopping power on rubber that doesn't have sufficient contact patch to deal with it... unless you like skidding of course?

Unlike high-end road bikes that have hydraulic (modulated) brakes on tiny rotors, these are larger meaning the caliper is doing less work.

Actually having larger rotors on a bike like this is a terrible idea. You want ideally small rotor with good calipers.

Excellent bike at this price, great for those of us who still like to hop up the odd kerb and ride all year round. Pretty sure I read Chris Boardman uses one of his own cyclocross bikes as his daily commuter too although not sure which model

Max frame 57.5cm. Is it too small for 193cm (6' 4") height?

There's more than just weight that make BSO crap.

Im 6'3" and I have no problems with the size.

Bummer.. I missed this. I'll just have to wait till the next c2w scheme at work.

These are still on sale but the sale reduction is currently £100 of not the £200. 10% off all roadbikes still valid so £719 before Britishcycling, Quidco, or Voucher discounts

There is another £60 off this now plus the 10% above.

Taking it to £569.99 (with afurther 10% off available with the british cycling)

Ive just ordered it...... Thanks

Hope u don't mind but how do you get extra 10% with British cycling membership with halfords? This is great deal anyway
