This is a really good deal for a road bike it should be hotter

Alright bike. Hate the wheels though.

Will do 99% of people as a cheap commute or fitness aid. The chattering class 1% will whinge about a kg extra weight or higher spec components

The frame looks nice

Thanks for input, the 300 is out of stock but the 500 doesn't look to have especially different specs, or at least not 60 quid mores worth.

Can you advise any further, probably buying this weekend. ta

Okay I found 3x bikes for around £200, I think they sit in this order:

1) £230 (£207 with voucher trick) Boardman Sport - http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/road-bikes/boardman-road-sport-bike-medium-53cm
2) £280 Triban 500 - http://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-500-road-bike-black-id_8331913.html
3) £215 Calibre Progress - http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/calibre-progress-road-bike-p296249

The boardman is first as it has a double chainset, claimed weight is less, mavic wheels, I like the tyres it comes with, internal rear brake cabling, aluminium fork and if you can be bothered to get vouchers it can be had for £207.

There's not that much to distinguish between the other two, other than colour and the btwin comes with a lifetime frame/fork warranty.

Thanks mate. The boardman is too small sadly.
The decathlon, are the components really £65 better?

not in stock anywhere near me and not available for delivery. I thought it was odd that I'd have missed that price. Thanks all the same bud.
