    Currently looking for a first bike for journeys mainly on roads and occasional bridal paths. Wanting to spend around 400 and debating buying a used Boardman comp or new carera subway or sirrus

    I'd go for the Boardman or something lighter if mostly on road. The Subway is a bit of a bombproof lump

    Have a look at the Decathlon 520 given your budget, very good new buy. It is very much a roadbike though. How often will you be off Road?

    If ok with used, the Whyte R7 bikes are fantastic, Portobello or Cambridge Used or an older model new Whitechapel

    The Merida speeder models are also good value in the sale

    Don't like Sirruses myself so someone else can push that option
