    The Merida.

    Easy choice.

    Very impressed with what you get for your money here.

    You can get hold of a Boardman for a fraction more (even less on Bike to work schemes etc?

    The Carrera is probably the best-specced bike out of the three - that would be my choice..

    Merida for me, it came out high in the C+ boty I recall.

    Might be worth checking out your local Halfords for the 07 Vanquish - they are not online anymore but I went into my local store today looking at roofboxes and they had the 07 with full Tiagra for £260, with a £20 accessory voucher

    walked away with a very decent winter trainer with Crud Road Racer gaurds for £267, brand new in the box for me to put together later/tomorrow

    well worth a trip down or phone call
