Newbie! Advice appreciated on buying a new bike!
So long story short; i'm currently at university and i'm looking for a hybrid bike that I will mostly use on pavements during term-time but can also be used on light trails during holidays and weekends.
I'm not going to be growing any more (at least I hope not, at 5'11!)
I think i'm looking for something light, with 700c wheels, fairly slim tyres and definitely not a womens bike as I generally do not like the design or feel of them, especially 'step-through' frames!
Can any of you lovely people suggest some good bikes or brands for about £600 or below? I've been looking at Trek, Giant and Pinnacle?
Or perhaps some options I haven't thought of yet?
