    IMO no, and total weight: 9.82Kg? That over 21 lbs with nothing on it. I bit heavy if you ask me? Sure you can do better. I don't think it looks great either? But looks can be deceiving! Just ask the wife. :wink:

    It looks pretty good to me, although I would be very wary of the alloy forks. Carrera Vanquish would get you carbon forks, so probably less vibration. And easier to test/take back from Halfords. I would not touch something like this without riding it. I found the Xenon stuff a bit odd, albeit 9 speed, on a bike priced at this level. You get only Mirage on £1,000 Wiliers. You must try it first.

    I've been looking at this model:

    Costs slightly more but carbon forks.

    The thing is, I've not been able to find anything at all about them anywhere online - which makes me a little nervous! For the price the spec looks OK, but without a single review or without being able to try one first, I'm a bit dubious about purchasing.

    If you do end up getting one, I'd be very interested to hear your impressions.
