Re: Need a new bike.. again.

What do you guys think about it? It's the wrong bike for the job. Why do you think so? This Ribble 631 is a solid performing bike, with full Campagnolo Mirage triple group and good quality wheels for £230 - with offers. They would probably take 200 for it, and they say they will ship it any where i...

Re: Need a new bike.. again.

I saw the frame said triban 5, but why isn't there like a page on decathlon showing the full specifications of this bike?

I've been offered this bike for £150, should I go for it? I saw some online sites saying that it's worth around £499, has the sora groupset etc

Re: Need a new bike.. again.

In-fact, will need to forget about the parva one, they ran out of stock on the 18 inch frame.... The options are now https://www.decathlon.co.uk/riverside-120-hybrid-bike-id_8405304.html? or https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/hybrid-bikes/carrera-axle-mens-hybrid-bike-black-16-18-20-frames? what...

Re: Need a new bike.. again.

Alright guys I came to a somewhat conclusion between these two bikes, I am just going to get a new bike instead of worrying about any consequences with used bikes (tried looking on gumtree/fb marketplace and ebay but couldn't see anything good, contacted a few people on fb marketplace for bikes that...

Re: Need a new bike.. again.

I've been doing some Deliveroo/Stuart for the last four months.... I see. Yeah, the reason I'm only looking to spend max £250~ is in-case someone does attempt to steal it or whatever, then it will be more forgiving to know that I didn't spend £800 or so. I took a look at the bike you linked and wil...

Re: Need a new bike.. again.

Seriously though; you're not looking after your bikes; are you? Third chain since October? What's going on there? Why not ask Deliveryoo to supply a bike for you (after all, you're working on their behalf)? But seriously though, what are you doing to your chains? My second chain break was today, I ...

Re: Need a new bike.. again.

Chains and brake pads (if looked after and maintained) should last more than a couple of months. Please bear that in mind if you're going to do a much cycling as your post suggests. If you've spent £100 or so already it should be ok to ride? Have you thought of buying a pre-owned one with better co...

Re: Best of 3

Thanks for your responses guys. I will quickly point out that I am not spamming, I brought a bike from the links given on my previous post but didn't respond since it felt people were taking fun of me with their answers. This thread seems to have better responses as I am now looking for a new bike a...
