    Have you looked at Giant? the Giant shop in Sheffield has a very good reputation and they do a lot of hybrids as well.
    Or look at what Evans have, you can test ride them there as well. Look under flat barred hybrid or sports hybrid.

    @night cycler Come to London by train and check out the Giant Comax @ianrauk has for sale in the classifieds. £600 I think

    Can't speak highly enough of the Triban 560 CF, dunno if it's still got the £100 off but it's excellent value at that £700 price point. The only thing you should definitely change on it (IMO) is the saddle but apart from that it's great as sold. As Racing Roadkill says the medium frame is fine at 5'10", I put a longer (better) stem on mine as I wanted to be less upright when on the hoods and I find it very comfortable.

    I got a Triban 500 SE a few years back. At the time, the best £350 I'd ever spent.

    Still riding it and still enjoying it, though it now wears a Charge Spoon saddle, Shimano R501's (replacing the original wheels as the rear rim split), Vittoria Rubino Pros replacing the Hutchinson Equinox II's (nothing wrong with them, they just wore out), and an 11-28 cassette instead of the original 12-25.

    Having said all that, I bought a Cube Peleton from Chain Reaction Cycles the year after for £389, and I love that just as much.

    Up at Ranmore Common ( via White down Lane:eek:)


    And up at the top of Box Hill, last weekend.
    So it’s a good climbing bike as well:okay:

    And that’s the Triban 520 at Richmond Park during the 2015 Ride London 100. So they are good Sportive bikes as well:okay:
