Huge huge waste of money. Awful brakes. And I mean awful. They never work and glaze easily and so prone to overheating. Also the rotors are very bent usually and you can't adjust the brakes very well.
Claris isn't expected. I would expect tiagra or sora

Not a fan of this bike then...

the pinnacle is a much better buy, with much better components. avoid this and buy that.

No arguing with you but if the brakes are than bad do you think you just got a bad set ? How many have u ridden on to make this judgement?

Pinnacle Arkose 1 has disc brakes similar to this. I found them inferior to rim brakes

On a cross bike? In a few muddy rides powerful rim brakes can eat a rim, cable discs just need setting up correctly to be effective I found

So many bikes to choose from, anyone recommend one for maybe odd pavement use until I get use to road and through forest and woods etc... not going to do jumps or anything lol but over odd bumps etc.

this is a quality bike. it is really made by Ridley. I have the non-disc version and it really takes a pounding. can still do 19mph+ average to work over 10 miles so sweat. decent brakes too! merlincycles.com/mer…wcB

By the time you have the monies op methinks offer will have gone.

These cyclocross bikes, what terrain can they handle, the only pictures I ever see are in wet muddy school fields on circuits, can they handle real off-road.

I ride bridleway, footpaths rocky downhills, moorland tracks, reservoirs around the Peak District etc just got 100mm suspension on a mtb and it uses 60-85mm all the time , rarely bottoming out

I have a Giant TCX CX and ride it around Cannock Chase and the Peaks on occasion. They are very capable but not a mtb replacement for me. You can ride stony roads and bridleways and the like but on technical terrain it can get a bit lairy. I have rode the odd lap of the FTD and Monkey trail on mine but had to hop off for rock drops. I also have been known to go over the bars on occasion too. Great bikes for training on as you can just blast up the roads and see a gravel road or track and go check it out though. If you are a skilled rider you could probably ride anything on them without too much fuss.

Thanks for reply very useful info, I have a hardtail mtb which I love riding off-road and also a secondhand hybrid (slim 700c wheels) that seems to puncture very easily on rubble tracks, I keep on thinking of buying a road bike, but I get so little motivation to go out on my hybrid on the road as I find it pretty boring, love going out on my MTB with mates or on my own 2-3 times a week 20-40km a ride , a cyclocross maybe the solution for a quick hour out and replace the hybrid
