    Hi I am new to cycling and have narrowed down my choice of bike to three models in my price range and was wondering if anyone could offer any advice please.
    option 1- Schwinn super sport 2007
    option 2- Giant crs 3.0
    option 3- Carrera subway
    the bike is to be used to commute to work so it must be able to take panniers and mud guards and also I may go down the odd canal tow path but I am told the Schwinn wouldn't be suitable for this however if its head and shoulders above the rest I'd take it and stick to the roads.
    Thanks in advance for any help:smile:

    I have had a Carrera Subway for near 2 years now, has full mudguards and a rear pannier, done near 2000 miles on it, not one problem. The bike will tackle a canal tow path no problem.
