About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I posted a deal for this bike before, but now Merlin are offering 10% off making this less than £600 delivered. Personally I think that a 10 speed road bike with rim brakes is a good investment right now as parts are cheap and still readily available and maintenance is easy. The main downside is that you're limited with the width of the tyre you can fit.

Don't forget cashback if you plan to buy. TopCashBack seems the best with 4.25% for new customers and 2.55% for existing customers.

    Carbon forks and decent components. Seems like an excellent offer for a road bike. Thanks.

    Would this be a good choice for a beginner cyclist? Or would stretching a bit to a decathlon RC520 be a better option?

    I think this depends on the type of riding you're planning to do.

    The RC520 is fitted with hybrid hydro-mechanical disc brakes and can take up to 36mm tyres, so would make more sense if you plan to spend a proportion of time riding on tow paths etc.

    Also the RC520 has a wider range of gearing with the lowest gear being 34x32, compared to 34x28 on the Montegrappa, so this would help a beginner planning to tackle steeper climbs. That said, 34x28 is a plenty low enough gear for an experienced and fit rider to get up any hill in Britain and the fact that the RC520 is 1kg heavier that the Montegrappa means that climbing would be more of a challenge. On the other hand, the RC520 would be better in terms of braking on the descents.

    I would say that if you plan to stick to mainly flat road riding, the Montegrappa would be the better choice given that you're saving over £250. (edited)

    Would this be a step up from my 2017 giant contend 1 with sora?

    I would say no, there wouldn't be a great step up in terms of the actual riding experience. Shimano Sora 9 speed is fine and Giant are a decent brand, so the Contend frame should be okay.

    Nice! Nothing wrong with that at all, better with a good tiagra rim brake than cheapo mechanical discs

    What’s the sizing like? I’m 6’1” would I need a L or XL frame?
