    Here is the review for it https://www.bikeradar.com/gear/categ...rion-09-33037/

    whats it worth now...£150 -£250 I would say depending on condition

    i would say in all it's a great starter bike..shimmy 105's are solid mid range groupset....ride this bike for a year....then you'll know what you after next...good luck

    Also, ensure it's the right size for you. No point in getting a good deal if you're not going to feel comfortable riding.

    Do not stress too much over it. If you're not going to get into cycling then it does not matter much what you buy, you're not going to ride a lot anyway. If on the other hand, you really fall in love with cycling, you're going to buy a new one after a year and by that time you'll have an idea what you're after

    For now, just make sure it's comfortable.
