What do you think to this bike for the price?

I can actually get it for £550.

Seems like good value and something well worth upgrading in the future with better components. But a descent frame and I like it's all internal cables.

Any thoughts?

    It’s had some very positive reviews on several cycling sites. It’s only a 9 speed Sora Groupset, but that’s fine for a beginner.

    Well, you have educated me tonite, I never knew gooutdoors sold bike related stuff. How does the member card work? do you just sign up for it and get a "member price / discount each time you shop?

    You pay £5 a year for it, or like me get given one of the spare key fob cards from a member who pays the annual fee.

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

    If you only have that much to spend the go for it. If you're buying because of the Full Carbon tag then consider the weight of 9.8 kgs.

    Sora groupset is fine and reliable, especially for those just getting in to cycling.

    What would concern me about this bike is the frame. The cheaper carbon frames often flex and aren't great to ride.

    Personally at this price point I would go for a decent alumimum road bike.

    Well I bought it and its great ..for me at least anyway. Did 15 miles on it this morning and really had a great time. Really impressed for sub £600.

    Also to the guy who didn't realize go outdoors did bikes....they do alit of bikes and accessories and a few if there bikes are award winning. Honestly there value and quality literally can't be beat. Alit if reviews especially with the mountain bike stuff say they don't even know how it's possible.

    In terms of the member card....you just buy it at the till when you pay for £5 with your goods. And then you never need to buy one again. I lost mine so just give my postcode now at the till. But literally is as. Simple as that.
