Road Cycling Buying Guides

Beginners: Six entry-level women’s bicycles under £400

Looking for an entry level women's road bike, mountain bike or hybrid? Then check in here for buying advice tips and the things you need to look for.

3. GT, Laguna (RRP £299.99)

This is the price range where mountain bikes could feature on your wish list and you’ll actually get a bike that you could ride off-road in comfort. Below this price range they tend to be a bit too heavy and clumsy.

Expect aluminium frames and Shimano EZ-Fire shifters and something like the SR Suntour M3010 fork with 63mm suspension. Female specific mountain bike frames in this price range tend to be step-through style design.

The GT Laguna is a super cheap ride, with high quality Shimano features and a feminine design.

The GT Laguna Women’s bike ticks all the entry-level women’s bicycle boxes and has Shimano Tourney derailleurs and a Suntour XCC T102 chainset, and all for just £299.99 too.
