I've been looking to get a new bike but the sizes on this bike look a bit small. I'm 6'3" and the biggest frame is 54cm. Could someone more familiar with bikes advise whether this would be ok for me? The 54cm frame is listed as for people 5'10" to 6'2" so theoretically it should be more or less ok (I guess?).
Good offer, but this one might be better for anyone looking for a flat bar halfords.com/cyc…ike
Probably the cheapest 16 speed road bike available now that the Muddyfox Race 200 has sold out but the use of those Cantilever brakes for compatibility with Claris brifters is visually a bit unsightly. I guess they provide better braking than standard road bike caliper brakes which is needed for a cyclocross bike. Fantastic value for what it is. First bike I've ever seen with those tektro brakes fitted. It definitely looks like a heavy duty road bike that should make a strong commuting bike too especially with chromoly front forks. Wouldn't surprise me if Halfords replaces it with something with disc brakes though for a future model.

Hi there, I would say you need Large frame - 56 or 58cm. I'm 6' and 54cm feels small.. I have a Carrera 56cm which is spot on
Nice winter bike with decent tyre width for the icy weather. Good deal

I think that's likely to be too small for you unfortunately, I'm 5'10'' and ride a 54cm frame so for your height you'd probably be wanting a 58cm but wouldn't go any smaller than a 56cm. Different bikes have slightly different measurements as the way they measure frames doesn't take the geometry into account so I'd always recommend trying a bike before buying if possible.

Thanks for the advice. Can I ask - is your bike a cyclocross? From what I gather the sizes of frames correspond to the type of bike, so (I believe) mountain bikes have smaller frames than road bikes. It's hard to tell what size I'd need because there's not much info on cyclocross bikes online tbh.
just ordered mine
To anyone who buys one perhaps they could do a review here. I'm curious about the frame. Halfords mention's 6061 but no mention of heat treatment and the paintwork seems to be basic single colour with transfers added. It looks a less advanced frame that the earlier Crixus frame which was more like the Zelos and Virtuoso. I don't know if people know this but the EU has pushed Cambodia to manufacture at least 30% of bicycles they sell. Previously Cambodian bikes were pretty much all Chinese parts and just assembly in Cambodia to avoid EU duties but now the EU insists on 30% of the bike locally manufactured. This basically means frames and forks so lots of manufacturers even top brands for their entry level models are manufacturing frames and forks in Cambodia and they are seen as perfectly safe but cruder older technology with inferior paintwork. I suspect this might be such a frame due to its larger downtube and paintwork. Alternatively it could be Halfords not being very good with their blurb. For example many of the frames from China were hydro-formed, a slow careful bending process second only to air forming which prevents adding as much fatigue to the metal when manufactured. The frames from Cambodia are likely mechanically formed which is a cruder, faster, cheaper process and requires cheaper machinary.

Cambodia is the biggest exporter of bikes to the EU.
