    New Hybrid Bike £250/300: advice needed!!

    Hello everybody!!

    I am a brand new rider who, after having a bad experience with a second-hand bike, has decided to give it another try and get a new bike.

    My budget is the following: £ 250/300

    Use: I basically need the bike to commute, so I'll be using it on roads. However, there are quite a few hills in and around Brighton, for this reason I ended up by considering an Hybrid bike.

    Basically I am pondering pros and cons of the following bikes:

    - Specialized Sirrus 09
    - Specialized Centrum Elite 08

    Any piece of advice is more than welcome!!
    So, please feel free to let me know which one you would get and why or suggest other options, if you have any.

    Thanks a lot! Cheers!

    Riccardo

    Riccardo, if you try the cycle to work scheme, you may find that your budget will go further than you ever think possible. I was also looking at a similar sum for my new bike, & ended up with a Scott SUB 20 on a low monthly sum - far better than I ever thought I could afford. Well happy!!
