WHICH BIKE

Postby Dexter9 » 29 Jul 2019, 1:49pm

Can anyone offer me advice on which hybrid cycle to buy?
At the moment I'm looking at a Giant Roam 2 which are on offer at £430 (over £100 off).
Can anyone suggest anything different /better for around the same price?
I've even looked at a Carrera Subway 2 from Halfords which I can get at the cheap price if £315 which looks real good value cor money. But unfortunately Halfords staff didnt in still me with any confidence. They don't seem to know anything about the products they sell.

Take a look around Decathlon for value for money bikes.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I just don't see the point of suspension forks on a hybrid so check out the Giant Escape range. I've had a Giant Escape 3 (non-disc) for a few years now and really rate it. It's still in the Giant line-up for 2019 and is currently reduced to £296.65.

I had a Subway, excellent bike. Dont rely on Halfords people and check everything over yourself. As R2 says Decathlon make great bikes too. Ortler from Bikester online seem to be great Gernan quality at very competitive prices too. They currently have a summer sale on.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. CTC gone but not forgotten!

Worth keeping an eye on here:

Discounts are often very good.
