Is this good for the price?

DCLane

Found in the Yorkshire hills ...
For what it is the bike's good value. There's been a couple of comments on here about it. The groupset is the old Tiagra 4600 10 speed rather than the newer 4700: http://calibrebicycles.com/bike/rivelin-2-0/

Looks okay, spec is good for the price. It's no better or worse than any of the makes you might know like Claude Butler, Falcon, Dawes or any other old skool names as they will all be made in the far east maybe at the same factory as this one.
It has quite a racy aggressive geometry. Is this what you wife wants?
She could also consider this for fifty quid less;

Very good warranty, another thing to look at.

I think she's after something faster than her mountain bike and she absolutely flies on that ( she's a bit of a nutter) she's just getting bored with sticking to trails. We went to decathlon yesterday and she tried the 520

I think she's just after something faster than her mountain bike and she absolutely flies on that ( she's a bit of a nutter) she's just getting bored of sticking to trails. We went to decathlon yesterday and she tried the 520 riding it in the store causing chaos ( I did say she's a nutter) she quite liked it but its £500. I think the cheaper one is a bit undergeared for her but I've got to admit I didn't notice that 500 one for £349. We're about to go out for a ride and she's going to try out my road bike to see how she gets along with it I'll be following on my mountain bike I just hope I can keep up lol.
