This is a general comment for the benefit of all.

It amazes me how many people go about this scheme the wrong way round. Surely the logical way is to source the bike first so you know the price and then arrange for a voucher to that value. After all, the bike isn't yours, it belongs to the employer until such time as the lease finishes and you buy it, and you are not allowed by law to add to the voucher value if you decide on a more expensive bike.
Secondly, although the voucher (in this case) has Evans Cycles on it, if it is issued by Cyclescheme you have the right to use it in any participating cycle shop.
The criteria for getting a bike is not "which is the best value" but "which suits me best"; and you cannot tell that ubtil you have sat on each one and talked to the sales staff. Only the rider can judge whether one bike is more comfortable than another, and they do vary in frame size, top tube length and handlebar stem angle considerably. The components are usually Shimano and, as has been said on here before, will only vary marginally as the bikes are all aimed at similar price points.
