Only for those who have posted a review after buying from one of several sites (wiggle, Halfords, tredz).

The frame itself I believe is the same as what was on the Strada 6 a few years ago and this is the review covers that bike:
road.cc/con…a-6

Difference are this will be slightly heavier, it has mechanical rather than better hydraulic and the claris is one groupset down from the sora (albeit more recent on its refresh ). The Strada 6 I gave some consideration due to its value when released (got a bargain on Croix de Fer 20).

As in the post though being a main retailor evans allow you to test drive if they have a demonstrator which is going to give you the best feedback of what you think, the geometry and how it suits you. If they do not have a demonstrator they ask for a deposit to order it in for you, make it up, fit it to you and then let you test drive it (out for a few hours at most). At that point it is either a case that you love it and continue or decline and get a full refund.

What brakes have you used in the past? The difficulty with a lot of bike parts is that it comes down to rider preference, some people don't like the quick grabby nature of the Shimanos and the new Guide brakes seem to have quite a few fans after Sram's rocky reputation with the Avids and DB's.

I have the inferior Sram DB5's that came with a bike and they're not great but on the other hand they work fine and it's a lot of hassle to replace them. I've got a set of SLX's ready to go on it and should really do it while that bike is on its winter break.
Very good brakes, can't go wrong for this price.
Great stoping power, had them on a jump bike, it was more then enough and then on trials bike for a while not the way to go duh, cost me about £140 at the time and then I laid my eyes on magura mt5 for like £160 and all I can say that i should have got magura from the get go... No way to compare them two, magura takes it all

For this price shimano is a good choise for a decent MTB

I'm no bike snob or bike brand snob but this really doesn't look very good …I'm no bike snob or bike brand snob but this really doesn't look very good especially for £200+ which if carefully chosen will get you a pretty decent bike new. Many years ago I bought a new £65 bike and rode it at 26 stone despite the warnings from many people. It was brilliant, loved the bike but in contrast to this bike it was incredibly simple, no suspension or gimmicks at all just a strong rigid steel mountain bike. Of course the weight it was carrying meant a few issues, had to replace the bearings in the front wheel and after hitting a pothole had to true the rear wheel that happened within the first 3 months. The basic Shimano tourney rear derailleur was poor at shifting after going through rain and about maybe after 6 months of ownership changed it for a Deore. As I got lighter the problems pretty much disappeared. If you are buying a cheap bike new keep it simple would be my advice. Cheap suspension is next to useless and short life. Cheap suspension can pretty much guarantee a landfill destiny in a few years at best. It is true though that many people buy mountain bike style bikes (Apollo, Argos, Toy's R Us etc) with no intention of taking them off road because they like the style and such bikes could never successfully be taken off road anyway due to weak freewheels, threaded headsets and weak suspension. I don't think its unfair to warn people that such bikes aren't suitable for such use. Many would assume a bike described as a mountain bike could be taken off road.


Well done some good advice. No commuter needs a full suss, its just going to add weight and result in less money being spent on the basics. Plenty end of season deals around. I am going to mention the second hand market, despite havin previously being stalked on HotUK deals for doing so! Plenty of good deals on gumtree.
Be careful with this supplier. They clearly give false information.

This bike claims to be 7 speed but the image shows what looks like a single speed bike with no cable going to the rear for hub or derailleur gears and no derailleur shown either.

They are also claiming normal price at close to £2000 but the bike appears something worth more like £90-110 slightly below their asking price.

A bike with a lot of overweight cheap components,you'll spend more time repairing and pushing than riding,
spending a little more on something like a Raleigh Evo-2 [Halfords]with better quality gears and brakes
and a lighter alloy frame will be less fatiguing to ride,more reliable,and last a lot longer.

Is it really that simple, can you really tell the difference between one brand or another? The durability of a break pad for example might depend on your weight, the terrain, and of course the weather, especially wet weather, and how often you brake.

Mind you, I wouldn't buy a value brand despite this. That would be a false economy, and too risky. The Clark pads I have however appear fine.

I wouldn't doubt it. Some people buy 100% into the consumerist thing that the latest version is always the best and anything older is absolute rubbish. I just expect people to exercise their judgment a bit. The latest might be best, but the difference might only be marginal, so not paying a premium for. Or, it might just be a marketing gimmick to get people to part with their hard earned money.

Yep, at £40 to upgrade it'd be a no-brainer at >£100 it is less so. Also, …Yep, at £40 to upgrade it'd be a no-brainer at >£100 it is less so. Also, one caveat to my previous comment would be that the brake (and drivetrain) question certainly becomes more relevant if you are a 16 stone male (like me) and not a 8 stone woman like my wife.......The tourney components on this are actually plenty good enough for light riding and work far better than I thought they would. Much better than the short of rubbish you'd have got at this level 10-15 years ago. A good example of the tech from the higher end stuff migrating down over time. When I say 'chocolate' I really mean some of the poor quality stamped mild steel stuff that you see on supermarket bikes and even on the Halfords Apollo range. Rusts easily and bolts bend and shear. When people cite <£100 bikes that is usually what you're getting and this is a step above that.


I'm no fan of tourney freewheels, I bought a cheap £60 mountain bike about 10 years ago, a 'Pagan Arrow' it was called and everything about it worked well and was super strong except the basic quality Shimano freewheel and tourney derailleur which needed constant attention. However I was 26 stone at the time and it had a trial by fire so to speak. I didn't stay long at 26 stone and pretty rapidly lost weight and was down to about 16 stone within the year. The issues I had were the front wheel bearings failing and bending the rear axle of the rear wheel when I hit a large pothole. However as you have pointed out a 8 stone woman is not really going to give a freewheel based drivetrain many issues. I'd agree about the wheel axles and nuts they are pretty awful on entry level bikes but still stronger than the low end quick release system which has hardened hollow axles. I always suggest either is replaced by solid hardened chromoly axle as sold by weldtite etc. Especially for a freewheel drivetrain bike where it considerably improves the strength and durability of those bikes although still not as good as having a cassette based drivetrain on the rear wheel.

Assuming the Parva doesn't already have a hardened chromoly rear axle that may be a good cheap upgrade in the future if your wife does somehow bend the rear axle but at 8 stone that would have to be a serious drop I would of thought to do so. Although it was mentioned on another recent hotukdeals thread that a child had destroyed the quick release axle on their diamondback bike but that was a mountain bike style bike and not hybrid. So may have taken some serious drops.

The fact that mechanical discs are very 'off and on ' and 'notchy' , plus the moving actuator arm of most mech discs are exposed so also likely to oxidise/corrode reducing reliability. I do not know of one cyclist who has ever gone back to mechanical disc from hydraulic ever. And not a argument 😃 just a friendly discussion with a fellow cyclist 🏻


We will have to agree to differ as I think all our points have been raised although there are plenty of videos and forum postings of people who have gone from hydraulic to mechanical disc brakes including 1 of the video links I posted previously who seems very over the top of his dislike of hydraulic brakes. Cables are still a thing though on most bikes as far as I know for brakes and gears and unlikely to be replaced anytime soon.
bonzobanana2 h, 22 m ago

I didn't prejudge it I just searched mechanical vs hydraulic disc brakes …I didn't prejudge it I just searched mechanical vs hydraulic disc brakes and most of the first videos that came up were more pro mechanical by default. Cable friction issues apart from the slightly greater pulling action required are not a problem in real terms in the same way they aren't an issue with V brakes or gearing. Loads of cyclists have moved from hydraulic to mechanical. Again though no one is saying hydraulic aren't superior for some applications but if your only criticism of mechanical disc brakes is cable friction then they must be doing something right. Clearly hydraulic brakes needing next to no maintenance is not the experience of many cyclists.

I prefer mechanical disc brakes myself for their sheer reliability and ease of adjustment and maintenance but understand the modulation and ease of braking is better with hydraulic brakes. Some people have actually gone from hydraulic to mechanical though so make sure its the right choice for you. If you find your hand fatigued after riding and you want sharper braking than your current brakes then hydraulic is the choice. You don't say if you have V brakes or mechanical brakes currently but assume you have mechanical. If you have V brakes then your frame, forks and wheels will need to be disc compatible so it can be a big upgrade. I'm just upgrading an old Saracen Xile jump bike to disc brakes from V brakes but the bike was designed from the outset to be disc upgradable so I just need the brake mechanisms and discs. However sadly most bikes with V brakes aren't so easily upgradable.

Quite a few bargains on there for this … Quite a few bargains on there for this brand.http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/clarks-universal-brake-cable-kit/rp-prod47548



Remember only a couple of months ago halfords were shipping Clarks bar tape for £1. Word from an halfords employee was that clarks were releasing a whole new line of products which would make sense for the reduction of their current products.

£79.99 for a wheelset that is 1510g??? superstarcomponents.com/en/…htm

Absolute bargain. I've been waiting to replace my CXP22s for ages and sometimes it pays to wait. A 700g difference in weight!

Also for MTB I can highly recommend the Nano X pedals, been using these for years, rock solid. Also the narrow wide chainrings are a good shout.

Plus it's not like I'm losing anything by having the 32 gear,it's rare to spin out the 50x11 at the other endJohn


Agreed. There is only one tt where I spin out and could have done with a 52x11 but except for 5mins twice a year, the rest of the time 34x32 is lovely. Although a 11x30 cassette would have still sufficed but im not paying 200 quid for a sram cassette.

Have you used 6800. It's worth it


Indeed. Its not just the gear but the overall shifting quality and precision. I never had 10 speed but coming from 105 9 speed the shifting required on the 6800 levers is so much lighter and more positive. Only downside that Ive yet to experience is decreased chain durability.

I'm a big fan of having more gear options particularly as it is kinder on … I'm a big fan of having more gear options particularly as it is kinder on your knees than grinding away in a harder gear. This is of course unless you live in the flatlands of East Anglia.I'm one of the few with a 32 rear and 34 chainring. Seated climbs all the way (tbh Im also not strong enough to climb out of the saddle).As a coach once said to me:Spinners are winners. Crankers are....Not.

Well, typical hotukdeal style voting

Wow, that is expensive. Is one more gear really worth paying the extra?

Evolution in action.


Darwinism in action.
As has been said brakes are all generally the same(unless there poorly made and maintained) except for smoothness and slight difference in leverage,the greatest difference will be a change of pads.My bike has a pair of 30 plus year old Ultegras that still function well.

I'm riding a fast road Bicycle, I'm going faster than any one else I see and yet I'm fine with brakes that barely work because the pads are so worn. I can look ahead, I can judge what is going to happen and react accordingly, I rode my Bicycle to work without and pads two weeks ago, I live in a hilly area and I still managed by swerving side to side to slow myself down. I think it's like the placebo effect, you buy something that tells you what it's going to do and you believe it. I've got these brakes, I've had 105's and I've had the **** stock brakes that came with my Bicycle.... all of them are the same. You're not doing 100mph to need them and you're not heavy enough to need them either.
