If they had put Deore gear changers on this rather than Altus I would have bitten at this price.

Probably, Halfords have so many "sales" that I bet even they don't remember past prices

Actually been waiting for ages for this price, they had same price in Nov but every time I ordered there web site caused probs. Reviews are good spec is good but little heavy! Don't care when I cycle I rag em to pieces and frame review is good although heavy! I don't care if it's a little harder cause of weight to climb the hill for me its exercise :-)
Go onto gumtree and the £300 you pay for this will get you a top spec £600 bike that someone bought 12 months ago , used a handful of times and sitting in a spare room . I have bought my last 2 bikes from gumtree . I have a Boardman comp pro now that was used twice and was £699 in Halfords. Bought off a guy who got it in ride to work scheme, £280 . Bargain.
Tons like that on gumtree , just need to haggle !

And the difference really I've looked at a lot of brand names and you pay well over the top also this cones with free service and its new not s/h.
Good to see this has hydraulic disc brakes for the price. I realise not for everyone, but I love mine & they're only mechanical ones.

I got a Specialized rock hopper in show room condition,It looked like it had never been used 20 years old and got it for £100 from gumtree,probably nobody else was interested as it had v brakes,but a stunning as new bike for very little money,I try not to look at gumtree too often as I could easily end up with a garage full of bikes

Inc hydraulic disc brakes for £196 new?! Beats my ex-demo Wiggle deal I thought was good.
