The Carrera Gryphon Road Pro bicycle is an exellent introduction towards road bikes. It cannot endure the hardship that a mountain bike can take and being a middle range priced bike then I would suggest only getting average performance from it.
This bike (based on other reviews and myself) is NOT designed for the gruellling bike run when people tend to stand on the pedals to shift weight for purpose of propulsion. Simply the rear spokes wont last if u did, as the other reviwers suggest.
An excellent upgrade from a mountain bike to use on roads. A burden if well acquainted with road bikes already. A menace if used in a city of pothole roads (Coventry).
Go on Ebay and try to find a second hand hardly used bike - there are many it seems sitting in garages waiting to get claimed
