    What Bicycle is this?

    Hey,

    I would really appreciate your help. A few years ago I lived in Greece, I bought a bike, that I really loved. Unfortunately I didn't bring it home to the UK. I was wondering if I could buy the same one, but cannot remember the name, the only photo I have is below. I was wondering if any of you could help identify it for me, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Photo

    Thanks alot,

    Errgon

    The name on the downtube and forks looks something like Seeco.

    Hey, thanks for the fast reply. Unfortunately the photo is too low res to make out the writing. I was hoping someone would recognise the logo. As far as I can see the last tree letters are TOR.

    That's possibly the worst possible angle to try to identify the bike...Looks like standard bits; Rocksox forks, older Shimano brifters....

    Looks like Sector to me.

    No matter the brand, it's a generic, department store bike. You can find a similar bike at most big box stores.

    Too difficult to make out what the bike is - or the quality. If you are in the UK- Go to a local bike shop to see what is available. Stay away from the Supermarkets and Halfords. One Nationwide store to look at is Evans.

    Still depends on the salesman- but they are normally helpful

    In terms of configuration, it looks very similar to a bike I had here not so long ago called a Barracuda Response. It was full-suspension and 24 gears. I sold it for 75. You can still get them new and heavily-discounted, I think, although they're no longer a current model. It wasn't my cup of tea, but would have suited a younger person.

    There's a Greek web site here with some Sector bikes. That Royal looks somewhat similar, and yours for a very reasonable 243.
