    My friend wants to get a bike to commute to work and pedal around town, looking to spend ~250 pounds.

    I was looking at the Edinburgh Bike CoOp Revolution Courier Classic which I've heard is supposed to be pretty good, but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas?

    Cheers

    Have a look at the Carerra Subway range at Halfords. They have had good write ups.

    Don't forget to budget for lights/lock/accessories.

    Dawes' Discovery range might be worth a nose too.

    I'd try the top two. Dawes are ok but the other two are better IMO.

    Subway Carrera 1 is a brilliant bike. £200 Halfords. Had for 18 months now and done over 2000 miles on it. Had no problems what so ever. With the spare £50, you can also buy a good lock (or two) some lights etc
