which hybrid/sport city bike for under £350?
Hope everybody is well.
There may have been a better sub-forum to publish this thread, but I wasn't sure, so sorry about that.
I would just like to ask if anyone has any advice. I want to buy a hybrid or sport city (sorry, I find they are called different names in different shops) for under £300. Any suggestions?
The Dawes Discovery 201 and 301 look good, but I don't really know what I'm talking about.
Dawes make a nice hybrid bike, esp with ridgid forks for simplicty.
You need to budget for rack, mudguards, repair kit, helmet, lights etc.
Tyres are one area for a quick and easy upgarde at the shop. If the stock tyres are kevlar banded then they are OK, otherwise switch them.
The wheel-build of any entry-level bike can be suspect so a good bike shop will check this. Are you buying from a proper bike shop?
Thanks so much for your help Michael.
Yeah, I'll keep the extras in mind.
I was planning to buy from a proper bike shop, yes.
What is the advantage of kevlar branded tyres?
I'm looking for a good bike for my money, but I'm not really sure what constitutes a good bike. I know I want a light weight one, but not sure what else. I don't need a huge amount of gears and I'm not sure about suspension.
