    well, it has wheels, so that's good.

    I definitely think you could get a better spec'd bike for almost $800 though. I don't know what's available in the UK, but in the US I'd go for a rockhopper over that- the comp disc model goes for like $700.

    Claud Butler may have had a good name a few Years ago but looking at this bike- Don't bother. Nothing on this bike to recommend it- Unless it is around 250 which it isn't.

    Find a decent shop that carries Trek-Giant-Specialised and see what they can do.

    Problem is that for 500 you are not going to get much- but this one is nothing. Forks- wheels- gear train are too low spec for any rough riding- and that includes the potholed roads we have at present.

    Cycle to work scheme is operated by Leisure Lakes. Only one of the dealers that do and link below.

    But if you are mainly on road- Do you need a Mountain bike? Contact Leisure lakes and see what they can offer on bikes.
