    Which Hybrid? (200-300ish) UK

    Hi guys, I'm from the UK and really keen to start cycling as I haven't done for a while
    I want a bike suitable for
    - road use
    - the occasional longer distance adventure
    - around 200-300

    I've been looking around and narrowed it down to these 5. (Is there much difference between them)
    Can anyone recommend anything similar?

    The first 2 are from my LBS

    Also considering Carrera Gryphon (350) or Carrera Subway (280) from halfords

    Thanks

    HI,
    I have a colleague who has just returned his third and final Carrera Subway. Apparently he pedals too hard when changing gear which causes the chain to lift into the frame and get caught. It's not a great design and i would not buy one.

    Personally i would want to test ride the Norco's and the Giant to choose between them.
