I ride a boardman single speed with carbon forks. This is a good deal. Would like to know the weight though, should be very light. Bargain if your looking to get into cycling.
But ain't someone with a 10-geared £80 Halfords special gonna give ya thrapping?
good deal, heat added.

How fast can you ride on single speed bike?
WOW. If only the women's one was for men and same as the mens bike price. Heat added still.
There's something wrong with the picture of the specs - there's clearly no brakes on the picture (which is normal for a track bike) although the specs do list brakes. If it is a track bike with no brakes, its use is pretty limited compared to a single speed road bike.

Hmm so why is the women's bike almost 3 times the cost of the men's bike, a trend I noticed recently at my local chippy, when I asked for a small bag of chips @ 80p the male of the premises gave me a nice weighty portion (ooh matron snigger, (yes I spelt that one right, now I have to use double parentheses, what a drag.)) whilst his wife a female occupant of the said chippy establishment would give me a most definite small portion , this led me along a path of mystery and mostly misogyny let's face it. The fact I'm alluding to is that the female of the species whilst derelicted by their financial benefiting allusions favour a more financially beneficial portion according to profit I definitely would snigger (yes, how many times I spelt it right! Christ on a bike, a cheap one mind you) about that one.

I'm not sure if you're trying to be funny but the men's bike is an aluminium track bike (not designed for road use at all) with no gears or brakes while the women's bike is a fully equipped road bike with gears and brakes plus it uses a much more expensive carbon frame.

Dear John, and don't this this the wrong way I know it's hard being a cliche but many of us we can't choose our lot in life, I sympathise with your views I really do but (here we go) the very act of braking induces an element and we could argue a strong element of choice/decision what you will make of it, therefore the very act of deliberately not braking of course can be valued as an argument for decision, now take the decision to ride a non possible braking bike to the mix and we can determine the value of freewill

Women get a fully equipped road bike whilst the man gets lets face it a death trap literally on wheels, feeling the shame here John, I know I am.
Perhaps better taking your off topic 'comedy' to the misc forum then rather than attempting to derail the thread here.

You can buy your £1000 bike with the change left over from your £1400 TV.

I'm not sure the act of pulling a shiny lever can be judged to be a conscious decision to brake or not brake as the pullee cannot know ahead of the event the possible sequence to unfurl from such a tiny action. There is further dispute as to whether the bicycle is slowing or indeed the spin speed of the earth.
not a Cervelo COLD! :P
The single speed looks like a commuter bike - low maintenance, no gears and light. Good deal. I may check out the cycle2work scheme ( you a hire a bike so get it at I think tax and ni discount with option to by at end). My only problem is the company has no showers and limited bike lockers.

I'm sorry to hear about the challenges you face with regards to your showers and lockers. It's a sticky situation and in many ways your company is locking you out from one of life's simple pleasures. No body wants to be the smelly sweaty guy at work.

Here's a little quote to inspire you... or perhaps it will make you feel worse - for that I apologise....

“Cycling is possibly the greatest and most pleasurable form of transport ever invented. Its like walking only with one-tenth of the effort. Ride through a city and you can understand its geography in a way that no motorist, contained by one-way signs and traffic jams, will ever be able to. You can whiz from one side to the other in minutes. You can overtake £250,000 sports cars that are going nowhere fast. You can park pretty much anywhere. It truly is one of the greatest feelings of freedom once can have in a metropolitan environment. It’s amazing you can feel this free in a modern city.”

The bike should come with brakes and lights - I maybe wrong but think its a legal requirement for all bike sold in the uk to be road safe.

The image doesn't show the brakes or lights as its a track bike and is a true representation of a track setup.

That's normal for track bikes. You have to install them yourself.

How fast can you ride on single speed bike?


I usually record all my bike rides on strava. It all depends on the gearing. My boardman is a 48t with a 16t freewheel and I have averaged 18 mph on a 20 mile cycle ride. I think the most you can go is about 22 mph in my gearing before you just spin out, going down hill I have got to 40 mph but not cycling at that speed. Because you don't have gears though it means less maintaince and less weight. I went up portsdown hill which is pretty steep on my single speed with a guy on a giant geared bike in front and he was shocked that I kept up behind him going up hill but I explained because I have less weight and also I'm not thinking about gears as I have none I am more focused on getting up the hill (plus my legs are stronger). On single speed you will train better and become stronger because you have no gears, it's not a bad thing. You can spend a long time adjusting a geared bike so a single speed saves time. Personally I choose single speed over a geared bike for this sort of price because you will get a better and lighter frame. If you want to spend £1000+ on a bike you will go faster than me but I only paid £300 for myou boardman with carbon forks and aluminum frame. For £300 you will get a steel piece of s**t from halfords that weighs a ton in comparison. Honestly unless you live in a very hilly area you probably don't need gears. Just ask yourself one question "do you ride around in one gear 99% of the time" if the answer is yes get a single speed like this one. I can't vouch for this bike but I wanted to give a my input as I do ride a bike like this.

Yes you could brake using the pedals and don't need the brakes.

The bike will however come will come with brakes already fitted to the bike (so it's road safe) and its up to you if you want to remove the brakes or not.

It is a track bike but will come fitted with brakes. its then up to the owner to remove the brakes
Can you cycling experts recommend a more hybrid bike I could use on road, and slightly off road on the forest paths please! Around this price range. Was going to pick this up but can see there's very little give and would not make a great bike anywhere but the roads! Thank you in advance.

At that entry price point I would look at Decathlon e.g. the Triban's. Good reviews.
