    I know this gets said every time, but there are some great 2nd hand bikes at this price or less.
    I just put 'carbon road bike' into an ebay search, the results include a planetx full carbon bike with 105 groupset and Mavic wheels at £295 in good condition. OK, I know most 2nd bikes will be collection only, but they'll be a much much better bike than this near to you, especially as a lot of riders are upgrading to disc brake bikes and are offloading older bikes

    It looks to be all it’s worth in my opinion.I can almost forgive the levers with that old fashioned cable run but those forks are something else. (edited)

    I prefer this cable orientation on cheaper levers, less bends means the gear changes will be slightly smoother. Agree with the forks, you can get carbon for less money.

    Bit of heat as a entry level road bike, only downside is the steel fork.

    At this price point steel fork is welcome. I had a bike with aluminium fork and it was horrible as you could feel every smallest vibration. Steel has some flex/absorbtion properites if I'm not wrong.

    I just don't understand this sort of spec on a road bike. Disc brakes with a steel fork (hang on a minute - steel fork on a road bike?!)alongside its cheap wheels etc will make the bike hopelessly heavy for a road bike. There'll also be no discernible benefit of the disc braking either, as they're just unbranded cable-operated brakes and not hydraulic. On a sub-entry-level road bike, I'm with the Rim Brake Conservation Officer.

    This is 11.58kg for the 54cm frame. Disc brakes and a steel fork, heavy on the road, but all you need is a set of budget knobbly tyres and you have the makings of a cheap gravel bike.

    This or a triban is the question

    This one always seems like a slightly weird bike in how its been configured but as an everyday abuse-able road bike seems a good option. As previously stated the lack of tyre clearance is probably the worst issue. If you want an everyday commuting road bike that can get knocked and abused locked in a bike stand you would probably want thicker tyres to mean more grip, less punctures, longer tyre life, more comfort.

    It's great to see budget bikes with a minimal but usable spec... Bit why did they go out of their way to use awful branding, colour way and design 😣

    Just make it a block colour and some subtle branding.

    And consider rim brakes to shave weight, and spend a bit more else where.

    Still it's going to be a decent enough bike.
