Mens bike for road use

5
Found 30th Nov 2007
I'm looking to buy a new man's bike for use on the lovely red routes that Milton Keynes has to offer, to replace my cheap old tired bike. Also for occasional use off road.

I am looking for something decent, very reliable and good to ride. Top price would be about £250. Certainly looking for something safer than a £40 Tesco bike ;-)

I've been told this is a good time to buy a bike as shops try to get rid of this year's models. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!! :thumbsup:

If you are using the MK redways look out for the idiots that are reported to be stringing wire across them:

Yes I saw this recently on the news - thanks for the heads up. Shambles what todays youngsters see as a fun thing to do...

That bike looks good to me, but I am very much an amateur. What sort of things should I look for? One bike looks very much the same as the next to me

Looks an ideal choice. Well known and trusted make, too.

feel free to pm for bike related advice.

If you are not into the tech-fiddling side of bikes, I would reccomend you buy from a respected local bike shop.

You can negotiate some free services and build a relationship with them - theyll be happy to keep your bike running by doing the odd free adjustment that way.

If however you ARE into fiddling with bikes, I thoroughly reccomend the secondhand market.

Bikes which are £1000 new sell for £300 a year later because some spoilt 14yearold decided its not in fashion anymore.

like I said, pm me for any specific info.

I like these people because they check and assemble the bike before despatch. I've bought from their special offers a couple of times. The Trek 4500 at £250 delivered looks good value... see review.
