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.

I needed a low cost commuter that can do the miles (160 a week on London's shoddy roads). I've had the Gryphon 4 months now and it is perfect. Really good brakes, nice gearing, light and quick. At under £400 it is a very well specced machine. I was somewhat wary about buying from Halfords and true enough the first one I went into was staffed by Fraggle Rock. But the staff at Kingston Upon Thames were interested, knowledgeable and helpful - like a real bike shop. The 6 week service was handled… Read Full Review
