Take National Express, then cycle back
Avoiding the M4, that might take some time - 150 miles
They will consider 'inter store deliveries'. Worth ringing up and asking for them to send it to one nearer to where you live (I successfully did recently)
Sadly no stores in (west) Wales yet, otherwise I would have purchased.
Think I got the last one in the Edinburgh store. Guy said there has been loads of calls about this. Cheers OP.
Just spoke to Lakeside store they have 7 XL and 1 L Coming in Monday and that will be the final batch to them, please call and reserve if you decide to buy. Reserved myself one in another store slightly further out from me, Thanks OP good bike.
Thanks to op. I got one from the Edinburgh shop about 5pm on Friday, they had a few left at that time.
thxs op managed to bag the last one in the Manchester area in large. Mine was the display model but came installed with lights and a bell dunno if that's standard tho?
thanks, pickup my L sized 500 this morning from Braehead Glasgow.

I thought I was special as I got that as well, must be standard.
Drove 50 miles to pick up a large size 500 in Oxford today. A bargain for the quality of it! Thanks O.P. Also None left in Reading

Lights and bell are standard on the bike, which I thought was a great idea. Only issue I have is I think I need a padded seat or padded shorts, my ass is killing me after my bike ride yesterday :-D

​my foresight was good, I bought some chafe-eliminating shorts in decathalon at the same time as the bike. They were only a fiver I think. definitely worth grabbing some as my gentleman region remains intact for more riding today!

​thanks have ordered one to test out
I bought one from the Oxford store (size M) and had it shipped by courier to Bristol for £35 via ParcelMonkey. The people at the store were very helpful and it made it here in two days. Highly recommended.

Seriously? £35?! You should try senditnow (ParcelForce). I use them all the time for large items - a couple of bicycles, a lawnmower, a kiteboard just to name a few things I've had them collect - and all for under £14 each time. Never had a problem with them.

If I'd realised they would've considered couriering for me, I'd would have had one. Never mind, too late now int it.
Wouldn't have been much of a deal anyway with courier, the bike was selling for £189 until the price drop.

Still a decent bike for £189 with disc brakes and the quality of the bike

No doubt. It was on my short list for a bike around £200, but ended up holding off buying a bike for the moment.
Any other recommendations for <£200?
