Wanted: Beginner Road Bike
I'm looking for a good beginner road bike, 54cm frame. Just something to get me started; never had a road bike so something decent to get me out and about and enjoying my riding. No more than £200.
I'm currently in County Durham, so within the North-East/Yorkshire preferred.
The cheapest road bike Evans have.
The cheapest Pauls cycles have.
Unless you want to try Argos or Hellfrauds you're going to need to up the budget a wee bit I'm afraid.
Within your budget but TBH I wouldn't touch it with someone elses bargepole.
Sorry, I should probably have mentioned I'm looking second hand. A £400/500 bike that's 4/5 years old should come down to around £200 shouldn't it? Or am I still shooting low?
Take a look on fleabay, if you see anything you fancy give us a shout.
Brilliant, thanks guys. Ill take a look.
Do you think a second hand bike at £300 would be a lot better than that decathlon bike? I was really wanting to go second hand to get something of better quality for cheaper.
You're always better off upping your budget a wee bit and buying new.
Samuel - those btwins won't change price for a bit. Pop into singletrackworld.com (sssh gorehound) and put a wanted add up (its free to do so), specifying your price and mentioning the btwin as a reference - see what you get. For example, someone is selling one if those - albeit a small one - for £100 at the moment.
Thanks a lot guys. Really helpful information. I'll get right on it.
I would disagree , if you know what you are doing you can get some real bargains used .
