My LBS has the above bike in stock @ £299, as it is the 08 model.

Took it out for 45mins, and seemed to get on well with it.

At the moment, I have a Spesh RockHopper, so am not really into road cycling, but would like to get started.

Is this bike OK for a "beginner" to road cycling?

Thanks

    Absolutely, it is a bargain at that price but make sure it is the correct size for you. :D

    +1. Size permitting, it's a great bike and at that price a bargain.
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.
  • Grab it if you can. If you don't want it can you let me know the name and location of shop? If right size I will get it!!!!

    I can tell you I've spent a lot of time comparing prices online recently, and that's an unbelievable price for that bike. 100 quid cheaper than I've seen it anywhere else.

    Well I rung the shop today, and they still had it, so I went down this afternoon.

    Took it out for a spin again, and then decided...I would have it.

    Got a wireless bike computer with it, for a very good deal. Picking it up tomorrow!
