Budget road bike - Origin Road bike

Postby scott.niblock » Sun Nov 24, 2013 00:24 am

I know everyone says budget road bikes are rubbish but as long as it does not fall apart I am ok. Has anyone seen or tested the Origin road bike for sale.on ebay? Components look good.

Thanks
Acott

Had a quick look, suppose it looks OK but it will be heavy, you could do better for the money.
I would suggest a second hand Specialized Allez / Giant Defy / or similar would be much better value.

I would ideally get a second hand bike but I finding it hard to find one in my area. Also I need a large and most I am coming across are medium.

Its says on the advert for the Origin that the wheels may need trueing. I don't like the sound of that. If I have to spend any money when setting it up when I get it I think I would probably be better going for a Carrera that are on offer at Halfords £250 just now.
