Cool, gonna have another browse myself and see if its worth updating my order.
Just got this one for £30 as it is DOT https://www.jejamescycles.com/the-thirty3-tracer-composite-full-face-helmet.html Reduces the risk of dying in a motorcycle crash by 37%
All, Sorry about the messed up grammar, posted from my phone. I hope you can decrypt my writing :D
After you click on the amazon checkout button
not listed on web site for under £1000
Is this deal still on. Cant seem to access it
I’m 6ft 85kg and got one in size L in december for the same price and it’s the perfect size for me. I use it with panniers on the back rack. It works great on hills (steady 15 mph)
Oh that’s great ... I’m 6ft 1 was genuinely looking at getting this
It was 5.99 I bought some then the price changed
Says out of stock and £35.99 for me :/
Not that great a deal really. The carbon frame used here is just a gimmick. Will be a selling point no doubt. But affect the quality of other components fitted. And at this price point frame material is irrelevant.
Good spec at this price point. Plus you can drop 'carbon' into frame conversations with your mates lol
Not just weight it's about the stiffness of the ride too.
I'm not saying it's heavy for a mountain bike, however the whole point of a carbon bike, is weight. So surely their must be better spec'd bikes in this price range, around the same weight.
My £1k trail bike comes in at just under 12kg and if it was a mountain bike it would naturally have a little extra weight at this price bracket. I don’t personally see an issue with the weight, for what you are paying for this bike. I accept that for some people are little extra weight is a big issue, as per the other correspondent and that is fair enough. But for your average Joe, the weight should not put you off his bike.
Definitely suitable as a rear tyre in summer, I run the maxxis minion semi slick all year round and it’s virtually identical
It should be ok unless you ride sharp stones that said my mate managed to rip a prototype black diamond encased spec last month in an hours use (excited)
good price. but how puncture proof is it?
It's collect only,no deliveries.
i don't need it but why do i want it so much at this price?! :/
I'm ~5'8", have a longer torso than most women, and am usually a 54cm in the (mostly women's) road bikes I've tried. Given that this bike is only available in 56cm and 58cm unisex frames, I would imagine that this would almost certainly be too big for your daughter.
Another option a bit cheaper but still good value http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/road-bikes/carrera-virtuoso-road-bike-51-54cm-frames
Then, I'm afraid life dealt you a bad hand, but it's still no excuse not to care for your bicycle... You just need to get out and ride it a bit more now, Mr Spongefactory ;-)
What if you hate your brother and beat him up?
It's a shame that this is your experience. My kids (and the others we ride with) understand that they are lucky to have these bikes and take care of them. That said, ours get raced and there's a big difference between dumping the thing on the ground ("go and pick it up and park it correctly") and breaking them in a race ("At least you overtook him first!"). Care for it like it's your brother, but ride it like you stole it :-)
You must have very good kids who've been taught to look after things - most I see just throw their £500 bikes on the ground and wreck them in a short while! Parents with money (or at least credit) and no parenting skills. (annoyed)
This makes very good sense. I nearly pulled the trigger on a second hand very good condition isla beinn 20" for £200 but had to go for a 20" carrera from halfords. The family were paying and didn't want a second hand bike. Very pleased with he carrera though for £180. Very light and looks the biz.
I've got the Haibike Sduro cross which is pretty much the commuter-ish version of the Hard Seven (bigger, thinner wheels) which I do about 40 miles a day getting to work and back. It's not a fantastic bike, but it's very good for the money. Some of the components are a bit low-rent - the rear sprockets a particular bug bear of mine as I wear out the top gear every 4-5 months (the chain starts slipping when you pedal hard). It's still under warranty, but will put something decent on when it runs out. One other thing to consider if buying a leccy bike online is the warranty. Haibike aren't keen on you just popping round to your local Haibike dealer if there's a warranty issue - they insist you deal with whoever supplied you the bike in the first place. So you may have to post the bike back to them if there's any issues. That said - I'd still recommend one. Mine 'somehow' seems to go well over the 15.5 mph assistance restriction so is great for ripping past rude road-riders that deem riders with flat bars too lowly to acknowledge.
It uses the Yamaha PW system, so you should be OK. Look on ebiketuning website for options.
Can you remove the speed limiter on this one? I was skeptical about electric bikes until I hired one in Marrakech, it brought the fun back to cycling without having to do the boring bit, and whizzing up hill at 45 mph past the lycra warriors was great fun.
Just think, if you bought one you could get around so much faster, and would then have spare time to work on your grammar and spelling (cheeky) (isn't sarcasm fun?). I bought an equivalent Haibike model for around the same price in a sale just over 18 months ago. Haven't regretted it for a moment. The build quality is excellent and, so far, it's been 100% reliable. I have a problem at the base of my spine which makes pushing hard a real pain, and this is where the electric assistance shines. Be aware, though, that the bike is pretty heavy and you'll notice the extra weight when riding with the motor off and when travelling downhill.
I have the hardnine with the Bosch system. Would highly recommend Haibike. Heat.
Looking for a smaller frame - 50cm (5ft sister)... Anyone have any ideas?
That review is assuming it's a £650 bike. If the review was run again assuming a £350 price tag it would be a lot better.
Agreed. You normally can't get Trek bikes via mail order. I used to own a Tiagra specced version of this. Very nice entry level bike. Got me hooked on road cycling. £350 seems a reasonable value for this sort of bike these days. You're getting a very nice frameset. Wheels and finishing kit are very basic though. As you would expect in this price range. But once you put some nicer wheels and decent tyres and brake pads it will serve as well as any alloy road bike. Also buying Trek gives you good resale value.
Also Trek don't allow mail order. They insist all their bikes are built professionally and handed over in person.
je James are very good
+ Standard delivery at £1.99.
Did any of you guys get this? Any good?
You can make adjustments to saddle height and position (fore/aft) if necessary you can add a longer or shorter stem and adjust bar angle to give optimum position. Each bike frame is different so difficult to be categorical about which frame size fits which body but 1cm should be negotiable. General rule is that it's easier to make a small bike bigger than a big bike smaller.
if ideally my size is 54, does it still make sense I buy the size 53? I mean, can I adjust the saddle heights etc to suit my proportions? I thought to ask before proceeding with the purchase
Call them and they apply it
Neither MARCH25 or flash10 codes won't work
thanks fairylights33. That's great
A (thorough, took ages) Google search brought up a spreadsheet listing the S as 13.7kg. I don't know if that's accurate, but reviews did seem to suggest not super light but OK. It's never going to be as light as a high end road bike I guess.
I did click the link. I even went on the official giant website. Stating lightweight does not even come close to defining a weight because i might define lightweight as 15kg but someone else might define it as 10kg.
My 8yr old has the 2017 model in an XS frame - its not the lightest and doesn't have disc brakes but she gets around on it fine
Why cold as always??
[url=tps://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-520-road-bike-sora-black-red-id_8322663.html]Your text here[/url] I'd go for this one - absolute bargain at the price £399. Sizes are limited but stores might have other options. Was awarded budget bike of the year and commuter bike of the year 2015-2016. Takes mudguards, panniers, wider tyres. A good first bike that will get you started and keep you going until you decide if you want/need to upgrade at some point in the future. [url=tps://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-520-road-bike-sora-black-red-id_8322663.html]Triban 520 - £399[/url] Sorry can't get link to stick - select and google for details. If you could stretch your budget to £650 it's big brother the T540 comes with full shimano 105 which is a steal at that price point.
I know several people who've had difficulties with them and found themselves suddenly with non-stopping brakes in wet, nasty conditions. I was on a ride when this happened to a friend. Took a mechanic who was with us a good while to adjust them so they worked. He said he'd seen the same thing on a lot of mechanical discs which easily go out of adjustment and he wouldn't ride a bike with them fitted. Another experienced chap on the same ride said he'd rejected his bike with mechanical discs as, after a week of riding, he considered it unsafe. Both said they'd be happy with hydraulic discs or rim brakes but not mechanical. I've heard the same from several other riders subsequently. My bikes have rim brakes and they always work fine. Just trying to warn folks as , to me, safety is the number one concern in cycling and I wouldn't want to find my brakes (or anyone else's!) failing at the wrong time.
Can anyone recommend a bike within 500 pounds with a size small frame (51-53cm), road/cx for commuting.

Overpriced when you can get the 6800 for £21.99
if only they were presta but that's why they are cheap. good find tho
Might be worth mentioning it JE JAMES selling them who are an established cycle shop. 50p a tube is cheap but I bought 10 a couple of years back and still have 9 in stock.
great price for each u pay £0.50 only one thing is Schrader valve Voted hot
Shame not 18-23 or 25
Judging on their size guide I'd say they're on the baggy side - https://endura.co.uk/products/?ProductID=116 I'd guess a medium which is 33"-35" according to the website.
Are these on the skinny fit side? What size would be ok for 34" waist? Thanks.
If it's above 5°C, it's shorts weather.
I've just filed a report with the police regarding 2 cyclists being abducted by aliens ...
I rode out yesterday for 4 hours in shorts, it was quite mild to be honest 6-7 degrees. I was quite embarrassed to see 4 of my mates out mtb'ing in trousers. Set of fannies
I've just received my rack and since the deal is still live I thought I should give my first impressions... It seems very solid with thick welds which hopefully will stand the test of time. Although the alloy looks thick it feels lightweight (though I don't have any other rack to compare it to). The colour is a lot lighter than it shows in the picture and is more what I'd call a matt silver. It came with a black plastic covering which fits over the adjustable brackets near the front. HOWEVER, and even though the website says it comes with bolts to attach to most frames, there were none with mine. Other than the missing bolts, I'm very happy with it.
I thought it was an ironing board.
Have some heat! Ordered, with this to get free delivery http://www.jejamescycles.com/jagwire-brake-cable-end-tidy-alloy-jbw2544.html
Think I saw Topeak Super Tourist DX Disc Pannier Rack get mentioned in a thread for my bike, so many choices, which one to go for[/quote] I had the Topeak on my last bike, never had a problem with it and I have a tendency to take to much stuff when I'm cycle camping.
