I am new to cycling and me and a friend are going to attempt a cycle from london to Rome for charity. We both are students and need to buy good but cheap road bikes as we are both students and therefore limited funds. Could someone advise me if one of these two bikes would successfully get us to our destination, despite them being so cheap. We understand they won't be the best bikes in the world, but we just need something which will do the job. any help or advice would be appreciated!
