It's easy to adjust the seat and allows a maximum rider weight of 120kg.

Of course at £429 it's a fairly basic, "one-size-fits-most" bike, as we found in our review. It's not the best suited for hills, but the motor will give you a boost to ease the climb. Motor controls are mounted on the left handlebars, but it won't display your speed.

A current offer on the bike includes get 20% off bike racks. The Assist allows pannier rack attachments up to 25kg.

Overall, the Assist Hybrid is a good choice for straightforward, non-hilly commutes. You can have it delivered right to your home or choose to click and collect when you order the Assist from Halfords.
