Was just editing after seeing that - I was too eager

Good deal.

Don't forget British cycling discount and vouchers for an even better price.

£200 for branded road bike? Heat added! Very tempting for 1st road bike.

a great bike! not a BSO at all! has deep drop brake callipers and will easily fit proper mudguards, so ideal for a winter bike or commuting duty as well. the reviews online are really good too.

Not available in Northern Ireland for some reason


Whats these bikes like anyway ? The reviews seems good on halfords, website, but they usually always do on there

I just ordered one, hope to collect tomorrow. I just hope they don't cancel now due to lack of stock, like Decathlon have done with the Alur 700. Fingers Crossed

Saw this earlier. If only it had the claris brake/gear levers which it has on the later models.

I think this is the 2012 model isn't it? which has thumb shifters and budget Shimano group set?

Can't fault it for the price, butted frame and mavic rims, carbon forks would have been nice but asking a bit much for this price.

It is a good price if you can manage with thumbshifters. Nice frame.

I have thumb shifters on a 10 year old sora and can't see why anybody has a problem with the them. Easy to use when in the brake hoods.

Got my Boardman Road Sport limited 2014 with exactly what you want (carbon fork and triple butted and STI) for similar price

Buy this for this price, remove the group set and stick the 105 Mersin offer on for £285 and then show me a better bike for £500?!

Which £285 105 groupset?

I have thumbshifters on my 2010 Cannondale Caad 8. I can use them from the drops no problem. never understood why the magazines always say you couldn't.

Spanking deal at this price. No frills but a great intro to road cycling and you would get £150 for it at least next summer if you wanted to buy a decent bike.

Gutted, saying it's not available for collection or delivery for me. Looks lovely for the price too!

What about the drops?

never tried ! only use drops when either full out at high speed or climbing at low. do have a high saddle tho so brake hoods low enough for me

I bought one last time it was on offer for £200ish. Cracking bike for the money. It's a proper capable road bike and while it's not as good as my carbon GIANT TCR, it's not £1800 worse

thank you OP. reserved one.

Great deal at this price....................HOT!

internal cabling for rear brake rarely found in entry level bike. A very nice to have especially if you use a bike rack on your car as this cable can get caught/stretched easily.

Doesn't it make the rear brake more "muddy"?

Is there any way to check if it's in stock in any other stores? It just keeps saying 'not available for collection'.

Give them a ring (when they're open of course).

I don't use the drops much either just wondered.

Wow Wow tell us about your other possessions, we all need to know, it's not materialism ;-)

I guess it gives more room for adjustment

Found the nearest to me is Aintree... not sure a 130 mile round trip is worth it. hmm

Weirdly, this is the closest to me but is coming up as unavailable to collect.

EDIT: I'm guessing you were looking at a different size to 53.
