Hello all, new to this and would like to know your opinions. I'm sure there have been many posts like this and I apologise, but can anyone recommend any good bikes for under £600 for a newbie? I've been looking at the Trek 1.2 and the Giant Defy 3 which look nice. Any recommendations on where to buy? Thanks a lot

    Specialized Allez sport is a very similar price, and similar spec of course. Just another option.

    Btwin Sport 2 from Decathlon - give you change for other kit as well
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    I can get any £1000 bike on C2W scheme for £600, so what about the Boardman Team Carbon?

    That's assuming his employer does a cycle to work scheme.
