its just a bike, no need to make it sound like a god ey

Looks nice, but I do like to have front shocks in town, great for bumping up and down kerbs.

For £200 your best bet would be a Rockrider 5.2

I don't think so!
The Decathlon bike is a far better bike. Put some slick rubber on it and it will destroy the Specialized in the city.

The specialized is 12kg...

Exactly the kind of bike that all those who post about £60 Tesco bikes should be buying instead.

Thanks for the heads up that their sale is on.

Hi this looks like a good deal, hope people dont mind me asking here but I wonder if anyone could offer me some advice. I am on the look out for a good bike for £200 max for something that is hopefully gonna last me a few years, I want to cycle for fitness really and lose a bit of weight, cycling approx an hour a day on roads, cycle tracks and occasionally bumpy paths and trails so what bike do I want, a road bike or a mountain bike or a hybrid? and what kind of tyres? Can anybody help me or tell me where there may be a really good bike buyers guide. I am 5' 9" and about 12.5 stone (overweight I know but hoping to do something about this).

Thanks a lot for any help anyone can give!

Each to their own, but are you really gonna get decent forks on a £200 bike?

I'm no expert, but this bike should fit the bill. If you're on the road alot you may want slimmer tyres, but 35c should be ok. What you dont want is a mountain bike with cheap suspension, and fat tyres. It'll slow you down and make the bike heavier.

Go to a bike shop and try a bike with front suspension forks and then try a similar model with fixed front forks. Also try a mountain bike against a hybrid, I know my local bike shop and halfords will both let you try bikes outside the store. Once you have done this you will almost certainly be able to make up your own mind as the differences are very noticable. My personal chioce would be a hybrid with no suspension for your needs.

Hot Deal, and I've never seen a reason to ride a mountain bike on tarmac. Hybrid would be perfect for roads and cycle paths.

Thanks for the heads up on the sale.

I wonder if anyone could point me in the direction of a decent cycle review site? The missus is looking for a hybrid bike with a step-through frame, but there's too much in that sale to choose from! If anyone knows any of these bikes, can anyone please recommend anything in the sub £250 price bracket.

Thanks

The people on the forums are fairy helpful, post a question and you usually get a sensible response (unlike some other forums.....)

You don't need shocks around town. They just make the bike heavier and slower.
Hopping up and down curbs is a straightforward and fun skill to learn.

In any segment, the highest ranking in Google might not necessarily be the best. Hence asking for a recommendation from people who know more than I do about bikes.

Where's the sarcasm?

Do you think they would do a deal to scratch it up and make it look more rough and lower the price so that it doesn't get stolen the first day i take it out?

Not sure if they do now, but Edinburgh Cycles used to do an optional plain paint job on their own brand bikes to stop them disappearing.

I agree, you dont need front suspension but you do need good tough wheels and this bike only has 700c single wall rims. A hybrid bike should also be capable of tackling bumpy tracks and tow paths etc and those rims arn't suitable. This is a not very good value commuter bike.

I have 700c rims on my hybrid, and this was fine until I put 25c tyres on to make it faster on the road. With 35c tyres on, this bike should be fine for commuting.
As for the final comment, if this isn't good value, post a link to a better deal!

And no doubt while looking for those reviews or information (as I've employed my half a brain to do many, many times), you discovered that some sites are better than others for such things? I was merely asking for a recommendation from kind folks with a bit of knowledge of the subject.

AVForums is the 10th item in a Google search for "LCD TV discussion", yet it's the first place I'd recommend to anyone looking for info on most AV equipment.

most of the basic information would be a bonus in hotukdeal listings, extra heat for extra info and lots of praise or criticism the internet has all the answers you need BUT.... oh I cant be bothered just google it you fools

I would have been interested in buying this bike but there's no indication anywhere which size would suit my height. Just a choice of 'Small' or 'Large'. Ridiculous! I thought bike people were supposed to be a bit more sophisticated than that, given the amount of jargon they spout.

Bought one of these at this price 2 weeks back - thanks for posting OP.

My comments as having bought this product from this seller:

1) It's a nice bike - good, lightweight and great for around town. Much better than the old, busted, Argos mountain bike it replaced.
2) Suspension - can see both sides of the ongoing argument here. Personally, I appreciate the lighter weight and better handling without it.
3) Evans performed admirably: next day despatch (and a nice lady called to say it was on its way). Arrived by Night Freight, took 5 minutes to put the peddles on and straighten the handlebars.
4) Sizing - there's a link on the front page (at the bottom) evanscycles.com/hel…ing
5) Don't forget QUIDCO @ 3% = £6

if you got long legs for for large

Would people prefer this to the Carrera Subway 1 if given the choice?

The carreras a good bike - so its down to personal choice really. It would mean buying from Halfords though, lots of people complain about the poor service they have had from them.
