    Default What bike to buy

    I normally cycle to work, but my bike is now next to useless and needs so many parts with various bits not working, its 6 years old, so I've been promised a new one from Santa!!

    The budget I've been given is circa £175 and I've found the one below at Halfords -
    Halfords Bike

    It fits the bill but i wonder what else is out there that would also do the same thing.

    I'm looking for a hybrid type thing, like i say its only for the 3 miles each way to work commute, so has anyone else have any ideas? I really dont know a great deal about these things.

    I killed the thread with the donkey comment (sorry Ian) I was in a good mood yesterday
    Answering Neil`s question is not the price on the dam things...is the cost of keeping them alive...they eat to much, they poop all over the place, and you have to pet them once in a while to keep them happy
    BTW this is a joke we use bikes too......along with the donkeys ofcourse

    As has been said, that looks just the job. I quite like the Carrera bikes, good value and good quality.
    If it's just a commuter then you dont really need anything else.
    14 gears will do you for a 3 mile commute, an aluminium frame, is nice and strong and light weight, and you'll be glad of the suspension seatpost which is less hassle than suspension forks, which unless you pay reasonable money are not worth a to$$!
    Oh, saying that get some mudguards fitted....well worth it when your plugging miles on the road!
