Road Bike, with Tektro disc set.
Okay, this question is not help by the fact I cannot find a photograph of the actual bike, but I can find its specs at the Halford's website, I am very close to shelling out money for this bike. I was in Halford's the other day, and I did ask a sales assistant in the Bikehut section my question, all I got was a blank stare and the reply 'It should be okay'
... however the supplied photograph does not show the model with front and rear disc brakes.
First off.. I have never before seen this type of bike with disc brakes before, and I wonder if the fork can handle the stress of a disc brake? The only time I have seen a front disc brake on a bike up to now is on a beefy and solid suspension fork, not a low profile fork such as is fitted on this bike.
Second, does any member know of a similar spec bke from another manufacturer? A Road bike, with straight handlbars, and full disc brakes? I have looked at road bikes similar to this before, but I like disc brakes, and up until now I have never seen any with disc.
I know Halfords does not have the best reputation in the UK, hence my second question. My budget is only £400, so the Halford seems like the best option. I don't really want to buy the bike unseen on the internet.
