If as you say you just want something simple and won't be going on anything rougher than a gravel track then don't bother with sus fork. As I said if you can stretch to the Marin Fairfax, you won't regret it, it'll feel light and nippy, the frame is much better than bog standard. The 700c wheels are probably the best size for what you need with lots of tyre size choices.

Makes up for having to trawl though pages of people arguing about the best type of fork ;)

Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it.

Simple, that would do the job.. http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/hybrid-bikes/carrera-parva-mens-hybrid-bike https://www.evanscycles.com/jamis-coda-sport-2016-hybrid-bike-EV245102 http://www.wiggle.co.uk/avanti-giro-f-1-2016/ Best bet is this for £300, because it has internal hub gears, yes bit more but very nice. That extra £50 would soon be forgotten.. Its at quite a discount and the rear hub on its own is the best part of £100 on its own. http://www.rutlandcycling.com/369669/products/marin-fairfax-sc2-ig-2016-hybrid-bike-black.aspx http://www.marinbikes.com/gb/bikes/description/2016-fairfax-sc2-ig Info about the internal hub gears. http://www.edinburghbicycle.com/blog/why-nexus-8-hub-gears-bicycle/

Personally I'd look at the bikes at decathlon - such as this: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-340-mountain-bike-grey-blue-id_8321326.html I've found them good value for money. The type of riding you're talking about would be fine with a basic bike like that - no need to spend a lot.

I ordered small and it fits me like a medium/large would. Which is fine because I can wear a warmer jacket/sweater underneath.

What's the sizing like on these? true to size or should I go a size up? thanks

Received my jacket today. Very fast deliver. Very pleased, check out the pics below. Normal photo without flash. With flash to show reflectivity

Got this for my brother at Christmas, he is currently cycling from John O'Groats to lands end. He says this is the only jacket that keeps him dry and its going to keep you safe as you are lit up like a Christmas tree. Worth every penny for keeping yourself safe.

i got a marin palisades trail for £500 from formby cyles, When i noticed no disk brakes they asked for another £150. Even though it should of came with them. Just watch out for these scams when buying a bike.

winchman

The series 1frame on the Marin can certainly take a disc brake as its the same frame used on much more expensive Marin's.

This GT Aggressor Comp might be worth considering against the Marin: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/gt-aggressor-comp-275-650b-2015/ At £238 it has £100 off and, like Marin, GT is a well-known, respected brand. The main differences are that the GT uses disk brakes, and 27.5" wheels instead of 26". The GT has a shorter travel fork than the Marin. Very loosely speaking, I'd say the GT might be better for speed on road & light trails, whereas the Marin might cope better with rough stuff. A slight problem with the Marin is that if you ever want to add disk brakes you'll need to change the wheels as they're not disk-ready. EDIT: In fact it might be impossible to add disk brakes to the Marin, if the frame and forks don't have suitable mounts. Disk brakes are not essential, but they cope far better than V-brakes against wet+mud.

'Hybrid' covers many different specs and can be exactly what someone needs, eg my Specialized 'hybrid' is a good road bike but without the drop bars as I dislike them. Equally many 'hybrids' are more like mountain bikes but usable on the road too. Most people here in the real world, who probably have only one or, maybe, two bikes will find a 'hybrid' in some form which is the best fit for their mix of riding. It's just a name, read it as 'not dedicated to a single, specialist purpose'.

ICTHUS

I would advise avoid hybrids. They do nothing well. Either get a road bike or a mountain bike. I agree at this price avoid suspension, it lowers the spec of other components and adds weight. And cheap suspension will not be effective and likely fail. This is a good bike for the price.

Madam98 it's horses for courses. It's an all rounder ( or jack of all trades, maste rof none if you prefer). A hybrid will handle a far more varied range of terrain than a road bike but will be faster than an out and out mountain bike. As an all rounder for someone who wants to commute, do light trails and some longer rides in comfort it is a single bike which covers all those possibilities and therefore will make perfect sense to someone who wants to cycle but doesn't want to start their own specialist bike collection(or can't afford to) to cover every possible type of ride. I'm guessing this will be significantly lighter than a much cheaper hybrid with the ride benefits that brings. You could always add end posts to the bars if you needed different hand positions. I have both a hybrid and a road bike. The first is great for around town, on country bike trails and rides up to abut 25 miles.If that's mixed terrain with any off road sections my road bike wouldn't handle it and would become a liability. If it's just a road ride I take the road bike but for all sorts of other purposes the hybrid is a handy piece of kit.

davidmatthewbrown7

Comment I ride a £500+ hybrid, better than a road bike because of the up right position and better than a MTB as its still light and fast. Saying that this bike doesn't look that good compared to what other hybrids are in this price range.

My wife had an old Triumph Traffic Master in the 1980's that looked like this. It had a 3 speed Sturmey Archer hub gear changer. It was a bit dated in the 80's. I'd agree with johnstalvern - you should look for a second hand bike. I suspect there are plenty of good secondhand bike shops in Manchester! Failing that if you are limited to less than £300 a 2 minute search of the web reveals something like this - http://www.evanscycles.com/products/raleigh/pioneer-1-2015-hybrid-bike-ec108619 Not saying its great but looks better than the Noodle!

dean_brfc

Thanks, I appreciate that a lot. I'm in Manchester. You could ring and ask how much they would charge to fit some for you? I would be in the same situation if I decide to order.

No mudguards and rear carrier. Need it to cycle to work.

Look for something with Reynolds 531 frame tubes. It's a bit reductionist to say this, but without going into spectacular detail on the subject (and I haven't got time unfortunately) suffice it to say that bikes using this frame tubing are usually good quality and were mid to high end bikes in their day. First tip: Raleigh made A LOT of **** bikes. I mean, a lot. Lets say pretty much 90% of what you'll find on eBay/gumtree will be just total ****. Essentially if you see shiny chrome rims on a vintage Raleigh, avoid (unless it's from earlier than the 50's, if that floats your boat). Second: just tell me your location roughly and I'll browse gumtree to give you a few examples (if possible).

dean_brfc

I did try that once before with an old Raleigh. It was a bit of a pain to be honest. Any recommendations about what to look for in that market?
