No. Its far worse than that.
#5
as long as the wheels go round for £60 BARGAIN
#6
Beware.......I purchased one of these bikes few months ago from SportsDirect, it lasted 3 weeks. They replaced the faulty parts and they lasted 5 days!!! Did manage return and get a full refund but not without hastle.
#7
was it this exact model please?
#8
Ive got one of these. But stupidly paid the £75 for it!

They're not as bad as people make out they are. The only thing I've had wrong on mine in the 6 months I've had it is that the outside of the pedal has broken, but doesn't affect your ability to actually pedal.

Bike gets used often too - so it's not as though it's sat doing nowt. Ride it from my flat in salford to Manchester Met Uni, which is a good 30 minute bike ride away.
#9
What a piece of c r a p.

Buy a second hand hardtail made by a proper manufacturer, or spend £200 on a new one.
#10
The cycling equivalent of plastic slip on shoes.

Cheap, does a job, but you will regret it and wish you had spent more.
#11
replaciong break apds cost £20 so this bike with disc breaks for 60 sems a bargain

SERIOUSLY. ANY BIKE WITH REAR SUSPENSION for less than £500rrp (happy to agree to much higher price) is CRAP and added to this it has disc brakes then this bike is SERIOUSLY CRAP! This is in terms of going off road - the reason for suspension.

You REALLY need to check out the returns procedure and costs involved if you are purchasing this. Do NOT ride on trails with it and if ignoring the advice then please make sure you have a helmet (should be first purchase) at the very least!
#13
I've been scammed by this seemingly 'great deal' before.

Within four months the bike was goosed beyond belief. Taking it to a bike repair shop I was told that it would cost me more than I paid for it to get it fixed.

It certainly isn't 'robust'.

On the road I presume, so why do you need rear suspension or in fact these disc brakes?

I couldn't agree more.

'Robust alloy rims and off-road tyres give excellent road holding'

Bear in mind that the description actually contradicts itself.

How can off-road tyres give excellent road holding?

Surely the term off-road means off of the road?
#17
DO NOT BUY!!!! I have had so many problems with my ladies Dunlop bike from Sports Direct - they won't answer any of my emails, so I'm stuck with a bike I can't use at all!

BEWARE!
#18
You would bounce down the road like a learner driver with rear suspension like that, too much wasted energy

Not voting cold as its not a "bad" deal, but spending £60 on a new bike just isnt going to cut it.

Almost correct, amongst the many bikes I am fortunate to own is a FS Decathlon Rockrider 6.3 on which I have completed a number of events. Tough as old boots, cheap at £350, 2yr parts and 5yr frame warranty. It is currently being prepared as a winter commuter. Decathlon don't do much wrong in my opinion, check out the reviews on BikeRadar.

Just sold a Lithium Ion electric bike which I have been having a laugh on for the past year whilst recovering from injury, currently racing XC on a Boardman HT Pro and pondering a new custom build from Ribble.

What do you retards expect for £60.. You get what you pay for..


About the same as I would expect from a £60 car, a complete lemon that might get you 100 yards down the road before falling apart. Buying bikes at this price point is just going to discourage people from cycling as they are going to be heave inefficient and generally rubbish. It's getting to the time of year when all the manufacturers are bringing out their 2010 models so expect there to be quite a few bargains on this years bikes.

There are a few bikes already on sale at evans and this Focus from Wiggle looks good value although it is 4 times more I know which of the 2 I would spend my money on.

Having lived in Stockport I know the shop well and I agree re the parts - did look at XC before managing to get Evans to do a price match on my Specialized Rockhopper 09 for £399.99 :)

Sorry guys, just got the email, and passed it on, I know double suspension is not the best !, but just posted the deal, off my email !
#23
Thanks OP. To all the bike fanatics, yes we know it's poor, but you get what you pay for. Thanks for the fair warning, but we don't really need every other post telling us the same thing surely?

Nope, off road too.

It's been down rocky paths and steep rocky inclines. I've found that it's suited me and as such haven't had any bother with it. Yes it does get used for mainly on the road, but it's not just used for that as I've just said.

Being a not-so-light fella, I find the suspension helps for pot holes and the like (which around Manchester there is quite a few). But yes, to be fair the brakes aren't anything special. The only reason I got this bike was because my old one was 8 years old and busted. It worked out cheaper for me to buy this bike - and so far hasn't cost me a penny more than I spent.

Yes you do get what you pay for, I'm not arguing that - but obviously if you're serious about riding a bike (as in taking them for proper off-roading and jumps) then you wouldnt buy a bike this cheap from a discount store would you...:whistling:

but the problem is in this case you don't get what you paid for. You paid for:

>Robust alloy rims and off-road tyres give excellent road holding

You're not getting what you paid for. If they were honest they'd tell you, you're paying for a heap of ****. I'm sorry but that's the truth. The wheels may go round but it will put you off cycling for life.

You'd be better off buying a second hand bike for under £100.
#27
not bad bikes, thanks for the offer
#28
Is this bike any good for basic cycling, mainly falt surfaces, nature trail & pathways??
#29
Are bikes under £100 even safe?! They sound like accidents waiting to happen.
#30
End of the day , were here to help other people find good deals, this im afraid is not worth it, countless problems and its still in the shed. Better of going to Halfords spending around £100 and taking it home with you, saves you the hassle of putting it together as well.
#31
NO NO NO - don't buy this bike..

I bought my son one for £75.00..
The front brake handle fell off, the rear brakes locked on and the gears broke...

Took weeks of emailing and hassle to get a refund !
#32
This bike ain't as bad some make it out to be.

I have one similar and it does the job and gets me from point A to B.
#33
Thanks for all your comments on this bike, was thinking of buying
#34
How many times do we have to have this debate.

It's like this, if you buy a bike for less than £100 you deserve everything you get.

Which in essence will be an untrustworthy bike which will probably fall to bits within six months. The brake cable will probably snap, the pedals will probably lock and the chain will probably lock on you at some point as well. If you're on the road when this happens with a bus or lorry behind you then you're pretty much goosed, unless God has other plans for you.

But is it really worth your life for saving a little bit of cash. This is one purchase that you CANNOT afford to skimp on.

I agree this is wasting money :x:x better off spening a bit more at your local halfords !!
#36
Agree with previous posters, better pay a bit more and get a decent one!
#37
crap bike but would do for a run around
#38
the kona posted the other day is a much better offer, even at twice the price.

Rear suspension I agree with you on; disc brakes (proper ones mind) are a good idea because rim brakes are greatly compromised in the wet. My next bike will have disc brakes.

There's enough info on the post header that you don't need to open it then - unless you're looking for a, shall we say, 'bike nerd debate'.

Cheap bike, cheap price, it deserves a place on here.
