no no no PMSL!!! i really dont know why people buy these bikes? unless your going to pay a good amount of money for a full supension bike then they are a total waste of money.
Your better off buying a hardtail bike (front suspension only) the rear suspension on these cheap version bikes are a total waste of time there is no adjustments and all your doing is wasting just about all your energy peddling on them as the suspension on the back will just be going up and down with every push of the pedal.
But not only that if your buying one for your kids its even worse as they might think because its full suspension it can do the things other full suspension bikes can do and end up seriously hurting them selfs, these bikes will fall to bits doing anything hard.

im not voting as this is just my opinion on this and as it was £249.99 its a big saving even though this is worth no way near that price or even £99.99

Claimed RRP looks nonsense to me and it'll probably keep your kids extra fit trying to make it move!

Cheap and fairly cheerful though.

I'd be totally honest, I'd rather not have a bike than that one (going off the spec - no offense intended to the manufacturer!). Full suspension bikes are only worth getting at a higher level IMHO, stick with 'hardtails'.

The suspension can turn into a false economy as they can be counterproductive in your cycling. If you need a bike at a low level its not worth going for the full suspension, and personally I'd prob not bother with any suspension until you get to a certain level.

If I went out today to get myself an A to B bike for work and a bit of 'play' I'd prob go for something like this for £127.99 (Appreciate it is more expensive than listed and has no suspension):

It has no front or rear suspension, but the rest of the components should be better than the one posted and give a far more pleasing ride.

If it is just for riding on the road to work I'd go for a 'Hybrid' / 'City' bike. Sounds gimmicky but will have more comfort.

There are a lot of bargains to be had in local bike shops if you take the time to look you will get a far better quality bike that will not only be a better ride but last longer I'd hope too. Always be wary of the level of unbranded components on bikes.

If anyone fancies shooting me down please go ahead but I hope my opinion is helpful!

Agreed.

Some pretty good everyday deals in Decathlon too, if you've got one near you.

Unfortunately the kids will all want full sus because their friends have it.
