Hi guys,

I'm currently after a nice bike.

I think I need a Hybrid ... I will mainly be using it on roads, parks and light trails.

I keep hearing about Decathlon. But are they really good?

I want something nice - But my budget is £300 - £400ish


Thanks

I've not owned one personally but from my research they seem to have very good components on them for the money often better than the big brands in the same price range

Yah! ....but is it good? or very good?

I've only ever looked at their higher models, but I know they're very sought after from speaking to some of the guys on trails etc. My boss has one, and loves it.

My second bike is a Carrera Subway and I'm quite surprised how sturdy and fast it is for only £279.

I don't know what they're like now but I've had a couple of Subways in the past (because they were cheap) and the wheels weren't very good, breaking spokes and wearing out really quickly.

I bought a Scott sub 30 on cycle scheme 3 years ago and that's been absolutely brilliant.
