Thanks to Tanks15 delivery is £25.

First post so be gentle :-)

Seems like a decent price for a starter road bike.

Decent Giant components and mainly Shimano Claris running gear.

Limited colours and sizes left.

They also have ex-hire bikes for £275.…ire

Too ugly and RRP price.

I guess the days of tiagra equipped top brand bikes for L400 are gone.
Still 350 feels a lot for a very basic road bike. For a first bike you'd probably better off looking 2nd hand.
think the Giant frame will be better, and more Shimano Claris, rather than random mix.

This is quite similar to the giant defy 4 i started with for around the same price, I believe the contend replaces the defy. It was the perfect bike to get me started and see if i enjoyed it! Turns out i did and has become a huge hobby of mine! I also lost very little when reselling the bike to buy my new one, I think its a great place to start because if you don't enjoy it for any reason you haven't lost a great deal! If you have been curious to see what road bikes offer i would go for it, This is a great deal but i warn you in advance its very addictive :P x

Triban 100 is an absolute junk bike worth no more than about £140 yet getting on double that price. It has a basic tourney derailleur and freewheel and is very limited. The Btwin road bikes get decent with the 500SE and 500 but that is pure junk.

Also bear in mind that the Btwin bikes only have a weight capacity of about 85-90kg but the Giant bikes go to 300lbs which is something like 136kg. A huge strength difference. I'm sure the Btwin weight capacity is fine for most existing riders but for someone getting back into cycling to lose weight they probably aren't ideal. I could ride the Giant bike but wouldn't dare ride the Btwin. There has been a lot of recalls for Btwin bikes due to frames breaking so for heavier riders they are probably best avoided.

I'm amazed to see a great deal at Triuk. They are my local bike shop and always found them very expensive for just about everything but with a reputation for very good service. This is definitely a great deal for this bike and I personally wouldn't be against getting an ex-hire bike for the slightly lower price if I needed a road bike.

Definitely worth sniffing around the various cycle shop sites at the moment with 2017 clearance offers. There are some good deals to be had. This Giant is a very highly rated bike even at full price so definitely should be on the short list if they have any left in your size.

Correction on the weight limit. It's 125kg for a Giant performance bike which this would be classed as. It's 300lbs/136kg for other bikes; trekking, mountain etc.…pdf

thanks op just ordered although they do charge £25 delivery on discounted bikes making it £350 but still a very good deal
Gets a great review in the cycling press and weigh's only 9.5kg. Definitely worth it from the world's top, quality bike manufacturer.
