I think its decent for a road bike with disc brakes (thats 1kg alone) if you can find a similar one for that price I would be very interested

Disk brakes.. what is this evil that you speak of

Disc brakes and rotors less than 500 grams , the levers and shifters built in so no difference to a rim brake bike

Yeah it's not light, I'm riding a drop handle at 9.5kg which is perfectly fine, but these Manila on carbon will be a lot lighter

It doesn’t have eyelets for full mudguards. The description is wrong as I contacted Wiggle a few weeks ago to clarify.

To 99.9% of cyclists a kg or so makes just about no difference. And if you are riding a bike with the intention of exercise then the heavier the better. But it wouldn't be hotukdeals without a laptop warrior discussing how light a £10k bike is

Alright price I'd say. Thing is I don't see it as a hot deal, because I don't see that it should 'normally' be any more expensive. Who would spend more than £600 on a low spec'd budget aluminium bike anyway?

This to me is an odd statement

Lighter bikes are more pleasurable to ride. They take corners better; don't kill you on hills and more responsive when you put the foot down. The more fun cycling is the more you will do it. The more you do it the more you will lose weight.

You don't see joggers wearing back packs and plastic sweat suits to shed a few more grams. Why would you do the same on a bike?

I disagree this is low specd for the price. The new 10 spd Tiagra groupset is vastly improved on the old one (which wasnt bad). As always on HUKD show me anything this good & cheaper and I will eat my words.

Great find OP. I'm so pleased my size is OOS.
Great spec bike. Good brakes, decent groupset and functional wheels. If you're only going to have one bike, that would be my recommedation.

Honestly a kg or two will make little difference. I cycle single gear, tiagra geared, a Sora, and even rental nextbikes. The enjoyment is no different. If you really must get from A to b with less effort or more speed then spend on weight. Your jogging analogy is pathetic, actually some people do carry weights, but running is intrinsically hard and cycling isn't. You have to find hills to make cycling a chore.

This is your opinion. Why don't you try and respect the opinions of others.
2kg on a road bike makes a very substantial difference. Especially if a large proportion of it is shed off the rotating mass (wheels and tyres). It won't make much difference to the time you take to get from A to B assuming you're not racing. But will be noticeable once you start riding up any gradient. And will have an effect on the joy you get from riding a bike. More responsive bikes are more fun to ride. Just like cars.
The lighter the rider, the more difference the bike weight makes to them.
Imagine this bike weighed 8kg. It would make it amazing and would sell out in minutes.

So.. Has anybody been able to post a link for a better bike for the same price?

I would be interested as would others.
