Not gonna buy this -

but it was slightly confusing. Any bike that somewhere like Tesco sells ain't gonna be great - but this thing...It's like a Cinell-lite bike, and surprisingly, has a Campagnolo Xenon (1 up on Mirage??) groupset. And is 400 quid

BUT on the one hand it weighs 14 kg, then 17.5, and has a steel fork..!

What do you all make of it?

    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
