Great bike

PostedSeptember 6, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, smooth gears, fast
I bought this bike about a month ago to get back into riding and also for a cheaper commute. I opted for a hybrid rather than a road equivalent because I feel more stable when riding with flat handlebars.
The ride is extremely smooth, gears are a joy to use and the brakes perform well. For a hybrid it's easy to get up to some decent speeds. I have no problem averaging 20mph and can hit 30mph downhill on my 6 mile commute.
The saddle however does take some getting used to, as it is very firm and uncomfortable at first.
Overall a great bike.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I picked this bike for commuting and a little cycling on country roads, and it performs very well, it really is a joy to ride. This is my first bike in a long time, now I'm riding 2 or 3 times a week.
For anyone looking for a first bike, this is certainly a great place to start.

Good for the price.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, Looks great
Not a bad ride considering it came in at under £300, smooth gears and nice roll with the presta valve tyres.
I use it to commute 4 miles each way and it does the job.
Plastic pedals and no quick realease on the wheels but I can live with that, if you want a basic bike to commute I would recommend it; oh and the design looks quite cool.
