Score 6.0/10
Good points:
PRICE PRICE PRICE!! This is a pre entry level bike designed for cheapness, and to have a taste of what a road bike is going to feel like if you want to fork out a bit more for something with a better overall quality. Assembly is easy enough, need to put the handlebars, saddle, front wheel and peddles on which took me about 30 mins on my own. Did I mention the price?

Bad points:
Although it says it has a 58cm frame from crank to seat post the frame is a bit short to the handle bars and not ideal if you have a long body. As mentioned in so many other reviews the brakes and gears on this bike are not the best. After the initial build of the bike I tweaked all the cable tensions to suit my big clumsy hands but found the rear break to be a real pain as they kept sticking closed. I moved the blocks higher on the rim and loosened the tension, this did not work so I took the break callipers off my old very crashed racer as I knew this worked fine on the last bike but they were sticking too. have now removed the break leaver had a look inside and their is something catching when squeezing the break line which can be self managed by pulling down on the exposed cable that runs along the tube when I can be bothered to unwrap the handle bar tape (which has been put on really poorly and will need replacing if I do this) I will cannibalise the old bike leavers and put that one on. This i snot a top of the range bike and is reflected in the price. Any serious rider will spend £600 and get a Chris Boardman instead but if you can’t afford that and are not sure if you are going to like road/racing bikes this is great to test the water.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is an exellent bike for the money, it has a quick release front wheel but all the other stuff is with an allen key (provided) it has the old fationed gears on the frame but for the money good. Very easy to build up and very satisfied overall
Bad points:
Done quite a bit of milage and no problems whatsoever

Bad points:
It might be cheap, and look good but that is all it has going for it. The first one I bought the front wheel wouldn't go on as the fork was bent and the second one I got the gears didn't work. Don't bother.
