    The bike I'm getting is a £1,000 bike but that's the type of bike I wanted, so for me the scheme was a no-brainer. I bought extra bits on top with my own money.

    My current bike is a flat-bar hybrid which is good, but the ride position starts to get uncomfortable on long rides. So I've using the scheme to get a Cyclocross bike which is good for commuting (i.e. takes a rack and is pretty sturdy), but also suited to longer rides because it has drop bars.

    Indeed, I did that with my second bike, first a pure road, second a CX. First I got with some lights, second was the full £1000 as I had all the other bits I needed, as a bonus I did it via a trade-in at Evans and got £75 or £100 (can't remember) of free stuff as part of their offer!
