    Bike Recommendations

    This is a bit random - but looking out to people on here that use Bikes (not the motor variety!)

    I am after a hybrid bike I think as although I would predominately use the bike on the road I would like to have the ability to take it through the woods every now and then.

    Probably looking max of £750/800

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah I know roughly what frame size I need (i have an old bike already) but i am going to double check that first when i do go into a shop.

    Do some digging around for the Bike to Work scheme. I am waiting to get official info on it but I understand you can buy a bike for up to £1K and the money is taken from your wage pre-tax in 12 payments.

    Your employer has to be part of the scheme in order to take part ...

    If you can cope with drop bars I'd suggest a cyclocross bike. Faster than mountain bikes (on road), tougher than hybrids. Quite fancy one meself.

    I have one of these for the same reasons and love it, not rich enough for two sets of wheels but do have some cross tires and road tires. Also Fitted a rack
