I know it's not a top of the range £500 bike but I'm just looking for a basic bike to take my son to school and back mostly. Can anyone tell me if this bike spec looks okay please?:

halfords have some decent offers on the carrera range with brake discs, light weight Al frame. I bought one from them a few years ago and its half the price of the bike you want.

see Link

In a few years time, it'll be on ebay for 99p

Is Carrera Crossfire better than the Claud Butler above then?

Carrera
24 speed
light weight al
front suspension
reviews show good comfortable seat
halford store - no delivery etc + cashback deals too on quidco/TCB

Claud Butler
light weight al
ridgid front forks
18 speed

also the CB looks like a girls bike

Oh I see! No, my son is only 5 and I used to walk briskly beside him but now can't keep up since he got his new bike.

lol, sorry i thought you were a bloke. secondly, i thougth the bike was for your son.

The carrera bike is unisex, its just boys cant ride girls bike.... its the law.

Also, i think Carrera is better spec'd then the CB. If i had a choice it would be the Carrera.

p.s gender noted for future ref X)
