    Im leaning towards the last one in green, but I really dont know enough about bikes to say for sure. Im quite poor at the moment, so really 200 pounds is about my limit. My beloved road bike was stolen a few weeks ago and im going crazy sat at home without bike, so im anxious to get a new one as soon as possible and have narrowed it down to these three. If you have any other suggestions, Im all ears.

    Any advice at all would be great!

    Thanks.

    Seeing as your bike was stolen I am taking for granted you know what size bike you need. Myself I would go with the viking sprint for a few reasons.

    I like compact frame bikes
    I like the color
    The price is affordable

    I am not a fan of "Platinum Card" Cycling. The right bike for anyone is the one that fits properly that they can afford without going into debt. Once you find out your price point select the one you will be happy riding.

    Nevermind,
    I Halfords has heavily discounted its old range of virtuoso, wich has excellent reviews online, So I just bought one of them.
