road bikes for Â£750 or less
that road cycling is an expensive hobby is a popular one, but we also think it's
kinda undeserved. Like any activity, you can sink as little or as much cash as
you want into it - and still have an amazing time. In that spirit we decided to
pick out a selection of our favourite bikes currently available from the Bike
Factory for under Â£750.
Allez Sport Satin
Sport Satin is a lovely bike that delivers high-end performance, without an
eye-watering price tag. It's seen as an entry-level bike because of where it
sits in Specialized's range, but really this is a brilliantly specced roadie
that'll take you wherever you need to go.
Sora drivetrain will keep the wheels spinning nicely with efficient power
transfer and minimal fuss when switching between gears, while the wheelset is

performance and excellent value. They summed it up like this, "the Trek 1.2 is
a very able road bike that'll reward your efforts with decent speed, and it's
comfortable enough to ride all day long. The fact that it comes with mudguard
and rack eyelets increases its versatility, so you can use it as a year-round
workhorse if that's what you're after."
And the best
part? At Â£649, you'll still have a hundred quid
to spend on accessories too!
Trek Lexa S
at Â£649 is the Trek Lexa S, a women's road bike that is more
than capable of tackling anything you can throw at it. In fact we've been told
it can even handle a little bit of off-road action when it has to - adding
hugely to its versatility and value.
The bike is
built with Shimano Sora drivetrain, for quick switching, and the shifters
themselves are placed within easy reach, thanks to the female-specific geometry
of the bike.
Cycling said of it: "Overall this is a really smashing bike. For Â£650 it really does offer incredible
value for money. The women's specific
geometry, light aluminium frame, carbon forks and streamlined appearance make
this bike feel special to ride. I honestly do not think you can go wrong with
British brand Raleigh have been around long enough to know how to make a great
bike that is both sporty and good value. In fact, we reckon most British
cyclists' first ever bike was a Raleigh, so popular have they been for such a

very low price point. Shimano Tiagra groupset is a step up from what you'll
find on most bikes in this category, while the carbon fork adds a bit of
lightweight, high-tech appeal.
