Found 24th Aug 2012
Been looking for a town bike and came across this from Sports Direct.
The rear seat and mug guards come in as extras just what I needed.
Please be kind as I am just looking for one myself. Would appreciate helpful comment and recommendation for alternatives. Thanks!

Seems ok for a basic bike, steel frames can be pretty heavy though, so you may want to go check it out first, if you can find a half -ecent alloy frame one it will make a big difference and may not cost much more.

Haven't voted either way, but if you are looking for a bike for yourself, the best tip is not to buy it from Sports Direct.

Head to Decathlon and see what you can get for your money in there, or look for a deal on the Carrera Subway at Halfords.

For an extra £50, try Edinburgh Bike Co-Ops own Revolution Trailfinder, on sale at £199 or the Streetfinder at £229.

If £150 is all you can afford for a bike, you'd be better of looking to buy one second hand.

Another vote for second hand.

For £100 - £150 you can get a cracking used bike which will last you years beyond what this one would.

Stick with the big brands (Giant, Specialized and the like) and bag yourself a bargain.

I just bought myself a Trek 7.3FX 2011 for £170 (RRP 499)with extra accessories!

Now I need to take it to a bike shop to tighten the rear break and also the get a Pannier rack to fetch my girl friend wherever I go =D

Any recommendation as to where to get repair done and some general check at lowest cost? As for Pannier rack, would it be better to order one on the Internet says from flee bay? Thanks
