It might be a good buy, but it's not really a deal, as isn't this just the standard price of the bike?

it's normally £199, have updated the title

Ok have some heat then ;-)

Seriously considering Decathlon for when I buy a new bike, was having a browse at them instore recently and the prices seem really good...

Honest entry level bike, not pretending to be anything it isn't.

In a sea of Tesco crap, this is a refreshing change. Deal isn't apparently a colossal saving, but then it's not against a nonsense RRP!

Good stuff.
