pretty heavy bike. looks quite nice. don't know whether the rrp is realistic though

Saw one similar in asda yesterday for £99, wasn't same colour however.

Better off buying a 2nd ladies bike with Sturmey Archer 3 speed. Something made by Raleigh or similar but about 20 years ago, before Raleigh and others decided keeping cost down to compete was more important than build. Not the throw away society they want us to be. Gumtree has lots coming up.

Have been spending a lot of time recently looking at classic ladies style for daughter and other half. The one for £99 in Asda is awful. Cheap and nasty. Don't know about Argos. My view is you need to spend around £250-£300 at genuine retail on a new bike before you get a good one. Lots of these appear on eBay, used 3 or 4 times max for £150-£175 ish. That's a much better route.

Can't work out why its called a hybrid bike it look like a normal ladies bike to me nothing special about it.
Also them plastic brake levers are useless wifes old bike had them and one of them snapped when she was riding it.
Metal levers are a lot better and them gear twist are another bad thing only work for a little while then you have to get them adjusted again because the gears start slipping.
Bike may look nice but riding it is probably a nightmare.

Unlikely to be any good - don't be fooled by the usual Argos 'half price' trick.
