    They all look like good value and good quality entry level bikes. You are probably aware of this already but the b'twin has a triple crankset which should get you up any hill, it also has a carbon fork which is always a plus. The other two both have a bottom gear of 39/25 which may or may not be low enough for you.

    Shouldn't this be in the Beginners section?

    with this budget I would advise you to buy secondhand - see what is in the back of Cycling Weekly etc - you will get a much better bike for your dosh than these, which whilst new, you will quickly want to upgrade if you find cycling is for you

    I'd go b'twin out of those 3.
    Saracen Tenet 3 - 2015 - Dead - Replaced with a Hack Frame
    Voodoo Bizango - 2014 - Dead - Hit by a car
    Vitus Sentier VRS - 2017
  • TRIBAN 3 it is then :) i only hear positive things about the bike apart from it being a bit weighty
