The photo shown here is of the £4,000 Scultura Evo. You're not going to get something quite as swanky as that for your £549.99, but you'll still get fantastic value for money. It has a slightly high centre of gravity - which takes a couple of rides to get used to - but, after that, you'll find yourself hurling this eye-catching machine around with confidence. I've just taken it over a category 1 climb and a thrilling descent down the other side round hairpin bends without it missing a beat. It takes tremendous punishment from potholes and cracked tarmac without even a rattle. The only downsides are the Sunrace gear mechanism and cassette - which are a bit downmarket but perfectly serviceable - and pug-ugly welds on the frame. But that hardly detracts from a great point-and-shoot bit of machinery. You would do well to find anything better at this price.
