Possibly it needs proper regulation (cable may be too loose). Take it back to the shop fro adjustment.

sounds like a faulty shifter to me....mine works perfectly although i did have to change the brake levers so that they fit properly with the shifters...the problem was that the triggers were catching on the brake lever housing which was preventing me from pressing the trigger all the way...is the rear derailleur moving at all? id just take it back to the shop and theyll sort it

No - you need the next model up. Extra £50 but you do also get hydraulic brakes so a pretty good deal if lock out an important factor for you.

No the Centos has spring forks with adjustable preload. You would need to go up a few models for Lockout

Unfortunately it is a limited edition bike that has a new colour model coming out twice a year. Once at Christmas, and once in the Summer. This red model is the summer 2012 and so will not be available for order at any time in the future. It is only available for Reserve and Collect at the stores that still have them left over from the summer. There is a 2012 Christmas model which is the same bike in blue item code: 325255. That is still available for order and reservations.
