I've been looking for a new bike to replace my Carrera Fury (Which needs fixing) for commuting 12 miles to work. I recently found out about the Ride2Work scheme and thought it was a great idea instead of splashing out all the money at once like usual on a new bike. The Ride2Work scheme associated with my work is with Evans Cycles, I've been looking for a smooth but fast Hybrid for around the £500-600 mark which would also be capable of doing the London to Brighton in July. Two bikes caught my eye and I was wondering which one would be more suitable?
