    For any of you worried about buying a Focus from Wiggle in case it doesn't fit or you just don't like the feel of it you can now try the bike out for a week and if you don't like it Wiggle will pay to have it collected from you. They ran this last year but it finished at the end of the year though they continued to offer it unofficially for anyone requesting it they are now making it official again.

    I wonder what happens to the bikes that are returned? Is someone selling them on or are they just destroyed.

    Certainly beats the 15 mins I got and when you change from a hybrid to a road bike the handling is so different that I really hadn't a clue what was or wasn't important so largely got nothing out of it other than to realise that it was obviously faster but then I could have told you that before I took it so not convinced that this thing of always test riding bikes is that essential to the novice. Too many other things going on for us to make a decision based a short ride.
