at £560 it would be a truly awful buy - tourney isn't even considered by shimano to be a road group set

I know it is £100/50% more but the rivelin 2 is a world apart in what it offers gooutdoors.co.uk/cal…864 taking you up to Tiagra on the groupset

Couldn't agree more. This bike is easily 10 times better than the Orbea. Deffo worth paying the extra £100, it's a no brainer.
I have two reserved if anyone wants them, they were for someone who changed there mind, North West Area, frame 53cm and 55cm. Theres a lot of noise here about how its not a great bike blah blah, tbh its a perfectly good bike for someone to get into cycling. I see the point that used bikes with higher spec can be bought for a little more but then this is still new and owning a new bike is something cool. I cycled to france few years ago and trained on a top of the range bike and my fellow cycling partner used to ride an old Raleigh he picked up for a tenner, in a car boot and I could never keep up with him. Of course he modified it but the point is that cycling isnt about driving a Ferrari its about getting out on the bike regularly, as long as you have a decent bike, it will be fine. Just ride regularly safely and enjoy it. Once you have have covered at least 2000 miles then start considering upgrading and by that time you will fully understand what your needs are in terms of all the different specifications.

Ah you want one of those e-bikes. You shouldn't be so lazy.
People are going to knock the components but for 200 quid this is a no brainer if you're on the lookout for something functional.

Funnily enough was going to post this one. Wouldn't have posted the £199 as spec so poor it would just not be a pleasure. At £299 you can just about buy a tiagra groupset. The wheels are decent. I'll be surprised if its 9.6kg though. Wheels alone are 1875g.
Seems an OK price as is, but £560 for Tourney? Got to be kidding
This is Sports Direct pricing 199 is the real price, 560 is pure fantasy. I am guessing that people looking at this price cant extend the extra 100 for tiagra, as others have said its worth it of you can.
Thanks, purchased - brilliant spot!

Carbon forks says possible. Unlikely to be more than 11kg. If 9.6 this is/was an amazing bargain.
Great price, good bike for the money. I'd get one but already have a garage full

Looks to be the previous generation of Tiagra based on the pictures (and them saying it's a clearance) but still a good deal.

yep for sure it is - would be clearly saying if it was 4700

If £299 is too much of a stretch then in between is the Carrera Virtuoso at £260 - £325 minus the 20% trade in (get a cheap helmet) would get you to the Claris groupset.

That's what I've got. It's the latest generation Claris too.

Better off to spend a bit more as others have said or go second hand. This bike is heavy with poor components and the RRP is nonsense. You will get fed up riding it.
Brilliant deal! A few in stock less than 30 miles away. TEMPTED

Looks reasonably light. And for hilly areas, the triple really does help beginners. However, this is a £300 bike, not a £500 one.

Only Inverness has stock now
Just popped into local store and picked up the £299 calibre 2.0 a lot of bike for the money.
Quick question for you cycling experts.

What would you recommend for a novice cyclist who is looking for a weekend bicycle to ride around parks and designated cycling lanes (pavement)?

Budget would be <£200 if possible please.

Thanks guys !

Robbed within 5 minutes flat
Worth pointing out this does have a cassette at the rear rather than the much weaker and more problematic freewheel. However the choice of 7 speed cassettes is quite limited but with the 3 chainring crankset not really an issue as you will have a very decent gear range. Seems an absolute bargain but I would want to replace the rear derailleur with something better possibly a Claris model for improved shifting and reliability in all weathers. Such a weirdly configured bike though, I would of expected a full Claris groupset at the claimed RRP but still should not be confused with a low end road bike like the Carrera Zelos or Triban 100 which are freewheel based. The overall package still looks a very good budget road bike. Tourney groupset combined with a cassette rather than freewheel should still deliver good shifting performance. The spacing of a 7 speed cogset means the engineering tolerance required for the shifters is reduced and the freehub of the rear wheel won't wobble like a freewheel. No idea about frame quality though, I know they buy them from the far east even if the final bike is assembled in Europe but the information about which factories they use doesn't seem to be out there. They could be basic quality frames from Bangladesh or something more decent but if its triple butted I would think more likely to be mainland China or Cambodia.

look on gumtree, ebay local free ads and spend your £200 there - you will find a lot more value for money, make sure the bicycle you buy has been serviced or that the chain, cassette and chainset are not overly worn. Look for shimano tiagra, sora, ultegra groupsets. make sure the frame fits you(guides can be found online) check online at the bike registry website the code at the bottom bracket of the bicycle if the bicycle may of been stolen before purchase. Try taking someone who is knowledgeable when purchasing the bike for a second opinion on the bike and it may help with the price. finally clarify if you want a racing bicycle or hybrid before you begin your search - happy hunting!
honestly this bike looks worth the £200 barely .. but to anyone with the slightest bit of knowledge they'd be saving their cash and buying something superior, but for the laymen pedalling to the pub who can't be bothered to research or find a better bike maybe this will suit them.
