Additional items in the monthly trial...
Why order this bike: a great entry level hybrid bike so ideal for riding on the road and round local parks and trail paths. The frame is made from aluminium so the bike weighs in at just 13.8kg. It comes with good quality tyres that reduce the chance of punctures and a comfortable seat. There are seven gears so if you are going to be tackling longer journeys and hilly areas we would advise that you go for a slightly more expensive model with more gears but this is a great, low maintenance starter bike.
What you get for your monthly fee: the bike comes with rechargeable lights, a gold rated lock, mudguards and a helmet. You can select more accessories for an additional monthly fee.
