About this deal
Silver is available in Medium and Large
The HYB 8.6 is a fast and comfortable all-rounder which takes the speed of a road bike and adds comfort and stability with a more upright position. A lightweight triple-butted aluminium frame transfers power efficiently and won’t hold you back when climbing.
2x9 speed Shimano Alivio drivetrain combines a 48/32t chainset with an 11-36t 9-speed cassette to give a wide range and low climbing gears, and Tektro HD-M275 hydraulic disc brakes provide easily controlled stopping power. 35mm Schwalbe Citizen tyres grip well and roll fast while offering good puncture resistance through their K-Guard Kevlar protection.
Soft-touch, ergonomically shaped grips, ensure a comfortable hand position. With fixtures for mudguards and a pannier rack too, the HYB 8.6 is a very versatile package.
Triple butted 6061 X7 Aluminium frame and Alloy fork blades
Mudguard and pannier rack mounts make year round riding and commuting practical
Wide range Shimano Alivio gears give a ratio for any gradient

One possible limitation is the gearing - I can max out on the flat with a helping wind. However it actually suits me as I do a lot of hills, and the gearing works well for me on that terrain.
One other caveat...components are generally decent versions of decent brands, but the "consumables" seem to be a problem. I had to replace my chain after 2 months, the large chainring (not really a consumable!) after 6 months, and a gear cable after 12 months. This is probably reflective of the hilly terrain and regularly standing on the pedals, but I expected better. The chainring was also an unusual configuration, my LBS couldn't source one, and Halfords had to wait to get one from the manufactures. They did replace it free of charge as a "goodwill gesture"...probably realising I would have created a lot of illwill if they didn't.
I would buy again, especially at this price. Just be aware that you may have some minor issues. When replacing chain, cassette etc, make sure you use decent components and you will be ok.
Need to go get a road bike this year and this will be reservered for pootling round the park with the kids.
