I was wondering if anyone could offer any opinions on the Corratect X-Vert Halcon on CRC? (I have never heard of them) - http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=75509
It's for my dad, who unfortunately had his Cube stolen from his bike rack in Calais just before bording the channel tunnel home, they cut through the lock wire.
He doesn't want to spend a lot, as it will mostly be used for gravel paths walking the Dog in the New Forest, and the occasional blat around Ashton Court and Leigh Woods with me.
Any other opinions on cheap bikes? Budget wise it is about £300, I might be able to push him a smidge over..
