    Hi everyone.. I'm back!!! :dance:Its time to rehome my trusty Carrera Vulcan MTB and replace it with something which will re-ignite my cycling spark.
    Ive decided on a Hybrid as most of my riding is roads, cycle paths, canal towpaths and often pot-holey lanes.
    I don't want a Boardman as I know someone with that surname who annoys me so id not want it printed all over my ride..
    I have pretty much decided on a Specialized Sirrus, the one I saw online and fell in love with (pro carbon??) was a bit expensive :blink: but it gives you an idea of what I'm looking at.
    Thoughts? Suggestions? Or even anyone selling something?? I need a white one, possibly red accents, I'm in no real hurry but it would be a nice time of year to find one with summer being around the corner.
    All help appreciated and free cake to the most helpful :tongue:

    I would go for a cross bike, more fun easy to put road tyres on and get some real miles in.

    Drop bars acceptable or has to have flats?

    Needs to be white with red? Unlike the Ribble?
    What’s the max budget?

    If white, I’d try to find a Whyte Cambridge from a few years back. Top bikes!

    @vickster thank you, those are a great help. I do like the Ribble but I'm not sure I want dropped handlebars.

    THIS got posted recently in another thread and really pricked my interest. I bet it's ruffty-tuffty enough for anything you have in mind and a decent price at £429
