Cyclescheme - Help With Bikes!

Postby emmatronic » Fri Jun 15, 2012 18:28 pm

Hello All!

I am completely new to MTB (haven't hit a trail yet but hope to soon) and after losing a fair bit of weight I've managed to muster the confidence to get on a push-iron again...probably for the first time in about 12 years haha! Anyhoo, the company I work for are currently offering the Cyclescheme and I was looking at getting a decent Womens Specific Design for around £500. I'm vertically challenged (5ft) so ideally I'm going for a WSD however any other recommendations for a good starter bike at this price are muchly welcomed!

Thanks

Emma

Does the scheme allow bikes from Halfords?

Also research what your paying,

You are no liable to VAT on these so the saving with final value payment often works out to as little as 10%

You can often get a bigger discount than this buy buying last years or just asking for it at a bike shop, even with interest free loans.

Thanks for the replies guys, much appreciated!

I have been pointed in the direction of Winstanley's Bikes as it's not too far from where I work and also on the scheme (BONUS) - if anyone could give me any assistance on the following bikes I'd be grateful

I'm swayed towards the Felt QW6.

Thanks Again

The Felt is the best specced bike there courtesy of the hydraulic fork and decent wheels. But if you can stretch to this:

You get an even better fork, higher spec drivetrain and lighter wheels.
