HERE is some infoon bike sizes.

Cycle Size
What size bike do I need ??

This is often the hardest choice faced by consumers buying a bike online as you can't obviously sit on it or have a facility to test ride prior to purchuse.
Bike Outlet' size guide is designed to give you a specific guide to what size bike you truly need and a basic instructions for you to be able to set your bike up to the right size when riding it.

The Basics
It is important in cycling that the saddle and handlebars are adjusted to the right height to suit the rider, Years of cycling experence and design have gone into adjusting various forms of bikes to ensure they are comfortable and offer good handling properties. The modern day bike is a mixture of the last 200 years of cycles design breakthroughs such as pneumatic tyres and deurailler gear systems - You can find more about this on our history of the bike page -here .
All this technology and yet in a recent national survey 65.2% of cyclists are riding around with their cycle incorrectly adjusted in terms of size.

The saddle and pedal arrangement however is most important as amazingly this will make it easier to ride and will prevent knee problems and even saddle sore !!.
The Highway code states that a cyclist rider must be able to touch the floor with their balls of their feet and this is often the best place to start although a cyclist rule of being close to full leg extent when at the bottom of the pedal stroke is a better guide as this will allow your upper leg muscles to fully extend and make it easier to ride your cycle.
This will however often mean the rider is struggling to touch the floor so it will depend on your riding experence as to where you personally end up adjusting your saddle .
Our size guide is a miniumum cycle size requirement and will generally need a adjusting according to your personal preferences.
The height at the front will also have a major effect on your cycling experence the majortiy of cycles have either a adjustable stem or can be raised or lowered .
For more information on size setup of your cycle follow our assembly guide -here

Adults

Most Adults cycles are manufactured worldwide to the same ISO standards and do not tend to vary greatly in terms of geometry from manufacter to manufacter . The general rule is one wheel size several frame sizes.
The wheelsize however can vary from 20" wheels such as folding cycles and BMX through to 28" wheels such as Hybrid, Sports Hybrid, Racer, and Road Bikes.
The frames can vary from 14" through to 23" and the size of the bike you need obviously depending on your size. On all cycles you will find some further adjustment is required in terms of saddle height and handlebar position. We have come up with this rough inside leg guide -

Frame Size Inside leg Guide (minimum size) Person Size Ft

22" - 23" - 32"+ 6ft +
20" - 29" 5ft 10
18" - 27" 5ft 6
16" - 25" 5ft 4
14" - 23.5" 5ft 2
Childrens Bikes

Childrens cycles are manufactured in a wide range of wheel sizes ranging from the smallest 12 1/2" and through to the largest 24" where a small adults mountain bike takes over at 26".
Childrens Bicycles can also come in a slight variation of frame size as well and this is well worth making a note of . Often the suspension versions tend to be a 1" or even 2 " larger than the standard non suspension although the growth span tends to be around the same as the seat pin offers a larger range of adjustment.
They do however tend to have a standard pattern and our size guide is a accurate guide for a average child at that age -

Wheel Size Age

12" 2-3
14" 3-5
16" 5-7
18" 5+-8
20" 7-9
24" 9-12
BMX
Full size BMX cycles are suitable from age 9 years right through to adults - Yes thats right 6ft adults ride BMX's !!!, they are designed to be low slung so its easier to do tricks and jumps on and a lot tougher too. The BMX was created in the 1970 by founders Bob Haro and Gary Turner (later GT) for more details on this follow our link on the history of the bike - here .
The mix of halfpipes ,skate ramps and street style of riding has adapted over the years and the current ranges in BMX cycles reflects various angles the cycling sport has taken over the years. Freestyle BMX seems to be the most popular as urban blend of riding has been created and they are good all round bikes but there are also Dirt BMX's,Race BMX's, and specialist trick style BMX's as well. Check out our link on the styles of cycles -here

Folding Bikes
These are based on a 20" wheel cycle and again will suit pretty much any size rider. They often have long seatpost and adjustable stems so you can adjust them to your size The folding bikes have developed over the last 20 years with the upsurge in commuting and many people trying to combat climate change. The main advantage with a folding bike is that is is light and versatile making it a really effective form of transportation.
The folding mechinisms have evolved over the years and the majority of modern type folding bikes and cutting edge technology meaning simple adjustments are all that are required, follow our link on setup on your cycle -here

I'm not skint, just lack the compulsion to buy glorified kettle cars
£1000 for a bike is not a very good deal. especially if it makes you look 'special' :prop:
maybe you should try to find a website where you can go on about how much you spunked away just so you could boast about it to your 'friends' on HUKD.
I plan to ride this little f***er everywhere fyi. I average over 100miles a week and have every confidence this will handle it as it conforms to British safety standards :thumbsup:
Besides, after borrowing first my dads cycle then my brother's i have come to the conclusion that suspension has a detrimental effect upon a bicycle, dampening acceleration and causing the most annoying rocking at every crack in the pavement.

No offence taken. :) They're not for the disabled in fact they can be a little difficult to learn. Recumbents are quite simply some of the most comfortable HPVs (Human Powered Vehicles) around.[/COLOR]

You would be amazed at the number of bikes around (road & mountain) costing four, five or even, six grand!!!
I have no car. My bike is my sole method of transport. I cover well over 3.500 miles on it each year so, in my case, it is important to have decent quality kit. After the original outlay this costs me virtually nothing apart from normal spares & repairs which is peanuts compared to a car. However, not everyone needs this quality e.g. the casual, occasional user or, those with limited funds. This is why I voted the deal as HOT because it is excellent value if it will suit your needs but, you usually get what you pay for with bikes and this one will probably be in a skip after a year or two. However, as long as you buy the bike with this in mind, I don't see any problem.[/COLOR]

Just to add that these bikes a complete junk.

I bought one for my GF last year and it literally fell apart within a week. Bought her a proper bike since but to be honest, the ToysRus deal looks better than this.

Search for Dunlop bike review on google. I personally hate cheap bikes like this but this one is especially bad and unsafe and if you have any problems with it like I did. Sports Direct dont want to hear it and you get refered to manufacturer even though your dealings is supposed to be with the retailer.

It's worth noting that Dunlop and Sports Direct are one and the same. The are companies both owned by Mike Ashley...as are Slazenger, Umbro and others...

The bike is cheap, may last a year, may not, if not take it back.

You get what you pay for in most things in life. The question is whether it is worthwhile to you based on usage and interest levels. When I was about 16 I worked all summer so I could spend about £500 on a nice GT bike to upgrade my Raleigh I was bought when I was 14 (about £100).

At the time I was off roading and going on lots of long rides with mates so was really bothered about weight, quality of components and strength. Now that I only cycle once a week as a hobby it really doesn't bother me the same. Despite all the claims that cheap bikes won't last, the Raleigh is still running just as well after passing it too my dad. There is no reason this bike won't last well if it is only used for normal riding and is looked after.

It does seem like a few of us ganged up on user 'Junk Mail' but hey, if someone comes on a thread just to boast about how much more they can afford to throw away on a silly little contraption that couldn't serve most cyclists uses then he/she deserves an acid response.

Oh dear. I never, ever suggested that HDUK users shouldn't be happy with a £50 bike which is why I voted it HOT. All I tried to do was to make people aware that a £50 bike was unlikely to be of very good quality but, that if it suited their purposes that was fine. Please do not try to make out that I am saying something which I did not say. I am all in favour of a £50 bike as long as you realise what you are buying.

DO NOT BUY THIS BIKE
I received the above bike as a Christmas Present and this came flat packed. I have experience in putting flat bikes before with no problems and followed the instructions picture by picture, unfortunately after putting this bike together and making sure everything worked. I found this bike difficult to ride in regards to using the gears.

When riding on a flat surface and when I was going fast enough to change gear, I found when moving up a gear the bike became alot harder to ride then you would expect when changing to a higher gear, my experience with other bikes is when you do this the bike goes faster but you only put in a little bit more effort in as when you did, when in the previous gear.

Having spoken to Universal Cycles customer services and explained the above they wouldn't class this as a fault and therefore not returnable, they even admitted that this is an actual design fault???

I'm just rather annoyed and frusted that someone bought me this bike Dunlop Sport King 26" Wheel Mens Mountain Bike for christmas that will just sit in shed never to be used.


Do not buy
This is a very badly manufactured bike. The gears make some clattering noises, don't change smoothly and skip. The handlebars keep coming loose and the left peddle falls off every time I use it, therefore I have to take a set of tools on every bike ride! I have tried tightening it and using locktight but there is nothing I can do. The only option is to use it for spares and repair. This is basically a clown bike that falls apart as soon as you sit on it!

I originally ordered one of these for my wife about 7 months ago, but I'm glad I cancelled after reading a few reviews.

I think that if you are going to ride twice, then you may as well only pay £25 per ride and get this bike. If you are thinking you might ride everyday, get a slightly better bike to test it out (or you'll just get frustrated). I did - I bought a £100 Cambridge Universal bike (it's £95 on Amazon) which has been great for me; but I did have to debuckle the rear wheel once, I constantly have to re-tighten the headset, the wheels are warped, the mudguard fixings gave way after about 6 months so I had to remove them, it's started to rust a bit... If you get a cheap bike and use it a fair bit, expect a lot of maintenance. Still, it's been very cheap travel for the last 18 months (saving me about £50 a month) and it's got me into cycling - which are the best things about decent cheap bikes. Now I am looking at spending £600 on a touring bike that will last me for 10 years - that's £60 per year.

I think £60 a year is excellent value for an enjoyable, good quality bike that will pay itself off over a year's worth of work days. The chances are you will get less than a year out of this £50 bike if you intend on riding it everyday. Even then, your everyday ride won't be "enjoyable". My advice is to try a £150 bike and use it for 3 years. It's still £50 a year, but it might just be enjoyable enough to convince you to ride a lot more.

Gives a chance for people to show off, I guess some people are obsessed with telling others how much they have spent on things. They will search all day for threads mentioning a cheap watch so they can tell us they have a Rolex, search for cheap biikes so they can tell us about their fancy thousand pound bike which looks like the special bicycles that handicap people use in place like India.

The main problem with people who buy these bikes is that they generally don't know anything else. They've never owned a half decent bike.

If they had they wouldn't waste their money on these anchors with wheels.

Actually bikes like this can stand many years of daily on road service, the frame will very crude and heavy, basic shimano TY derailers are quite durable, bearings will have to be greased and adjusted a couple of times a year as they are not sealed.

Or maybe their half decent bikes have been stolen in the past? I wouldn't be too bothered about getting a £50 bike pinched.

However, I would consider buying a second hand better built bike before buying this one, mine cost £50 three years ago & has done several hundred miles without problem.
#34
If I might stick my oar in?

With cheaper mountain bikes, you tend to get what you pay for - odds are good this one will be heavy, have components that are at the lower end of the quality spectrum and will require careful looking after if you want it to last. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, of course. If you want a bike for very occasional short trips or just to see whether cycling is for you, then this would be a sensible buy.

The main thing to consider with this bike (And cheaper mountain bikes in general) is what purpose you intend to use it for - with knobbly tyres but no real suspension, this would probably be at its best if you regularly ride on slightly bumpy ground/gravel/towpaths etc where the drag from the tyres will be offset by the extra grip they afford. Think carefully though - if you ride mostly on roads/tarmac then the extra friction from the tyre knobs, along with the upright riding position and low gearing will slow you down a significant amount! I speak from experience here and I'm sure any cyclist that has ridden both mountain and road bikes even a little will tell you the same. If you see yourself riding mostly on road and/or for anything longer than a five minute ride then I urge you to consider a second hand road bike (If speed is important) or a 'hybrid' (if comfort matters more) making sure your bike is fit for purpose will improve your cycling experience tenfold, and you'll be much more likely to get the most use out of it!

For those considering the second hand route, I recommend [url]www.gumtree.com[/url] or ebay and searching for something in your local area that you can pick up, as delivery charges can amount to a significant fraction of the bike's total cost.

Happy riding!

People who buy bikes at this end of the market don't bother attending to things like lubricating bearings. I'd be surprised if they even get air in the tyres from time to time, let alone oil on the chain.

I wonder how many people would count cycling as a passion if their first (and perhaps only) introduction to cycling was on a reasonably well put together bicycle instead of this pile of junk?
