I had a good look around and, for the money, this is hard to beat if you want something to start you off. It arrived three working days after I ordered it and was well packaged. It's mostly already built and it only took me 40 minutes to finish it. It's well made and well finished and, for the price, I could find no better. Somehow all the others I saw looked cheap. This didn't. The only other point I'd make is that although it's sold as being a good all-rounder, which it is, there is a compromise in that the tyres are dual-purpose and are quite knobbly and you can feel that on the road a little more than I expected, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Oh, and the delivery driver looked at me (I'm 56) and said "Decided to get fit then?". He must have got used to seeing lots of middle-aged blokes buying a bike and trying to get back in shape! It was funny though.
