couldnt really say I am not a bike expert from the looks of things they have a similar spec

There is other bikes in the sale this one is a nice price with a big saving.

I'm surprised they've got any stock of this bike left. I was interested in this model but non of my local shops could get their hands on any so I ended up going with the 2013 model (with less gears but 29 wheels), woulda picked up one of these at this price but buying through cycle to work scheme so needs to be a local shop.

I bought mine in-store i had to buy the display model they said it was like that in most stores.

Same price elsewhere, not a hot deal but not a cold one.

I just got the bike today and the brakes are something special.

Could someone advise me which of the sizes I should order for someone 5 foot 8 inch tall? Thanks

Well I'm 6 foot and for the 2013 model of this bike I've ordered the 19 inch frame. Now the 2013 model has the 29 inch wheels which makes the 19 just small enough for me, so I'd imagine the 19 in the 2012 model would be fine for you.

I am 5ft 10 and i bought the 19" i think you would be better off going a size lower here is sizing chart edinburghbicycle.com/com…htm

Thanks for the response about the size. I am pretty much only going to use this bike to ride to the gym. Its a 6 mile round trip on a long flat straight road (some times busy) with a dedicated strip of the road for a bicycle lane. Would a bike like this be over kill for this purpose. If so any recommendations for a general road bike please. Thanks
