Sorry Emma for a negative post, but this bike really is rubbish. The suspension will be pants and the bike will be far too heavy for any enjoyable riding. The breaks will also be a death trap.

I've seen bikes from both sides - I've bought cheap ones like this, but more recently I've paid more and got two half decent bikes (Specialised Allez (£350) for the road and a Carrera Vengeance (£225) as a mountain bike) - I'm extremely happy with both these bikes, but when I've bought cheap ones, they've ended up stuck in the garage after one ride. It may seem like a bargain for £60, but these bikes are basically unrideable and they have the potential to put you off cycling forever.

Also, mountain bikes are for riding off road - This bike wouldn't handle anything remotely off road and the first sign of a hill would leave you wishing you'd never set off - the bike's too heavy. If you want a full suspension bike - spend over £1000 to get something that works!

All in all, I'd say stay well clear. Either spend more money on something that's half decent (Either with no suspension or a hard tail) or don't buy a bike at all. £60 may seem like it's cheap, but you would be throwing £60 away in my honest opinion.

What a nice negative comment, good information and not done in a way that makes the op feel bad for posting!

It's a bike for a 9 year old.

Thanks for the comment. I have ordered one for my 8 year old daughter just for playing on for a couple of years. She wont be doing any serious mountain biking. Weve seen them in Tescos and they look good and the size is perfect. Not too much out lay and if she does enjoy biking then we will look at spending much more money next time around when shes older.

To be honest with you, that makes it even worse - The brakes on these things are a death trap, you simply don't stop with them. Raleigh do some nice bikes for kids - They do cost a little more though (don't get one from Halfords - christ they're expensive in there!), but you won't have to break the bank to get one.

One final bit of advice though - If you ever buy a bike (especially for a child) which you have to build youself, take it to a professional bike shop for a once over after you've built it. Many of them say they're 'ready to ride' out of the box once you've put the handlebars and peddles on - my experience has been that they are far from it. They will almost certainly need the gears and brakes adjusting. It my cost £30 to get them to give it a once over, but it would be well worth it.

Fair point Emma - I've said it in my last post above, but make sure you check the brakes/gears before you let her out on it. If you don't want to spend any more money taking it to a bike shop, there's some videos on youtube which show you how to set gears/brakes on bikes and it's not too difficult to do.

How can you even compare a £45 bike to a £225-£1000 bike?

Good find OP

thanks for posting.

most people use cheap bikes to get to work and back 99% dont even see offroad use... for the moeny you cant complain and i highly doubt the brakes will fail (maybe off road going 60 down a mountain but not average day to day use) what nonsense.

Dear Emma
Living at London I lost the account on my stolen bikes, so I tried all possible bikes approachs from the cheaper ones as the Tescos you posted. I agree with Ryan.. at the end it will cost more money or you simple will not enjoy the riding at all. And again on my personal experience Raleigh are very decent bikes you can buy without mayor worries. For a 20 inches the Raleigh Dream Girls Bike - Purple, at Amazon. £72 delivered.

IMO better off buying secondhand and getting something decent that will have a resale value. I bought a 4 yr old Specialized Hardrock from eBay for £100. I guess it will be worth that for quite a while to come. A £60 Tesco bike is virtually worthless secondhand.
