What ever you are looking at, does your £400 include locks, lights, helmet, gloves etc, as these can all add substantially to the price.

Thanks Jim, nah £400 is just for the bike. I've budgeted £100-150 for all the accessories.
This any good?

Looks good, decent spec, and if you live close enough to a branch, you can use their free service offer.
Don't know your size, but last years model is here http://www.realcycles.com/m49b160s307p3022/2012_SARACEN_Urban_Cross_1_M_2012/RS_GB/7100 for Evans, if you can wait till next week, would be interesting to see if they have any sale offers, especially as the 2013 model doesn't have any discount. The 2013 model can also be found here a bit cheaper http://www.freeborn.co.uk/saracen-urban-cross-1-bike-2013
