I found this when looking at another post about a cheaper Halfords hybrid. I like the Pendleton Brooke and it's really a step above a lot of the rest of the stuff at the bottom end of the market. £150, reduced from £200 - but unlike a lot of other bikes at the bottom end, the RRP itself is actually a good price, making the discounted price an excellent deal in my view. 'Hybrid' is rarely a good term with bikes (handy for marketing maybe), but this is a comfortable town/road bike certainly capable of light towpath kind of use, though not significant off-road use unless you change the components.

The Pendleton has a decent aluminium frame that takes a threadless headset (none of the 1980s steel quill stems as found on most of the bikes in the £100-200 range), has quick release front and rear wheels (not bolt-on rear axles, again like the cheap ones), alloy hubs and rims but also seatpost, bars and stem which overall save a significant amount of weight over steel. The saddle and bar grips are actually very comfortable too. The gearing is sensible, and in the lowest gear (28-28) there won't be too many hills that would make you get off and push. Overall the bike is so much better thought out than most models that you'll see near this price at Argos/Tesco/Sports Direct. Full specs are in the link so I won't post them again here.

I actually bought one of these second hand for a family member a few years back and found the aluminium frame pretty good (choice is limited for decent cheap aluminium step-through women's frames), so I swapped more or less all the main parts for decent LX/XT MTB kit. It came out at 10.6kgs (23lbs 4oz) even with the steel forks left on.
