Agreed, built in anti theft system too. Just leave the receipt attached to the handle bars and the crack heads won't nick it either. :whistling:

Good find OP, Where was the store?

Will try ASDA to see if they have any, but I'm suspecting it is a local deal.

26in wheels means it will be full adult size. So if its a 17in frame would think 5'4" upward.

Brilliant deal - HOT from me :thumbsup:
#10
Deathtraps, especially with the current conditions of the road surfaces. Will probably last a week or two if you are lucky.
#11
They were priced up at £50 yesterday in Tamworth store however this morning the signage was up for £35 but no sign of the bikes even the display ones had gone - this was 11am if it helps.

If you get one of these, you will be put off cycling for life. If you are not sure whether it will suit you, purchase a decent second-hand bike from the local paper. You can then upgrade to a better one once you are sure that you will not be wasting your money.

These will weigh a tonne, fall apart on a bumpy road but will probably result in thighs like popeye due to the effort requird to propel this heap of junk forwards.

am sat here waiting for the biking fraternety to come on and flame this as usual because it doesnt weigh 3 kg and hasnt got a titanium crank and rearset.

Saw them last night - but only ladies version available.

Utter carp but worth it if you live in a pants neighbourhood and your bike is likely to get nicked.

Surely this is a good idea to buy to see if you like the idea of biking.. if something goes wrong you can take it back.. a second hand bike you dont know what might have happend to it and cant be returned..

Spot on. Second hand bound to need work too. Ignore the bike snobs.
This will be a pretty poor bike but at that price it's worth a punt for a while. A couple of new tyres and tubes for a second hand one would cost you this much. Then you'd discover the bearings are knackered, and the brakes poor, and it has lose spokes, etc..........................

I've recently spent quite a lot on a pair of new bikes but I can see that these cheap ones have a place in the market too. Just be realistic in your expectations.

Oh please! Go and play with some traffic and leave normal people to their own pursuits. These simply aren't aimed at the same market. I have no doubt you'd spend this much on a water bottle!

Fab price especially if you only want it for occasional use like my daughter.

These posts always attract the bicycle snobs I bought one of these last year for £70 and have used it every other day since and it works fine. It has required one repair which cost £15 and if it had cost more than £30 I would have just bought another one and no it won't put you off cycling getting a bike that costs hundred pounds stolen will, and there is nowhere that bikes don't get stolen from and if it gets stolen you buy another one. I wish they would paint them in Asda colours just to stop the herberts from thinking about stealing them, because they actually look nice bikes.

I am not a 'bicycle snob' (whatever that is), I am just an Engineer by profession who cannot understand how anyone can purchase rubbish like this and expect to be pleased with it. A bicycle is capable of 10-12 mph when being ridden by even the least athletic person.

You don't want to fall off a bike even at this low speed, as it is very uncomfortable, and you are more likely to on a bike made of poor grade materials, especially with regards to brakes, tyres & tubes.

These bikes are poorly manufactured with huge tolerances on the components, the materials used are low-grade, the build quality and assembly is very suspect and they are an accident waiting to happen.

By the way, this so-called bike snob has just refurbished a bike purchased in 1991; a good quality bike assembled from quality materials and which still rides as good as new. A pleasure to ride.

Much like the quality to be expected from these 'bargain' bikes then! Hit a pothole with one of these wheels and see how many spokes are left afterwards.

But can you not accept that others are not Engineers. Just ordinary people for whom a cheap bike does the job? I myself, am an engineer but being a software engineer does not qualify me to rebuild a bike from 1991 either.

I say let them buy this crap, waste their money, have a load of hassle then 'learn from their mistakes'. This £35 could be money towards a decent bike, if you really want one. My mate's a cheapskate and has to buy a new bike every year as he only buys £80 worth of rubbish and it falls to bits on him. I bought a Saracen at JJB for £200 and only use it for cycling to work now and then. Good bike, well made and have had it 6 years. Off course, if you're wellbeing is not an issue go to ASDA and buy a 'bike'. Ye can't say you weren't warned.

I have a decent bike myself and after having 2 Halfords specials stolen have bought 2 of the Asda specials for the girls. Even being a bit picky the bikes are decent enough for the girls. Anyone buying a 'cheap' bike do not need it to go rallying or racing down hills, they need it to travel up and down the road to work or school. All too often having a decent bike puts you at a loss, as on many occasions the more expensive bike is the one that is stolen and will suffer just the same damage due to the elements if parked up in a works / school bike store. Plus, kids, and dare I say women, all too often ram up curbs and just sling a bike down on the ground which again brings more damage and cost. I would much prefer to lose or damage a £35 - £60 bike than one of several £100.

I'll give it heat, just to P off the lycra clad bike snobs

As an engineer I would be perfectly happy to purchase one of these. It may need the odd bit of work but then so will most bikes. If its that bad then take it back in the first year and get a refund.
If it weighs twice as much as a £3000 bike then at least you've saved yourself a fortune on gym membership! Get one of these and get fit quicker.
There isn't much to go wrong on a bike anyway and for most people it will get used a few times and then dumped in the back of the garage.

i'll go along with that last sentence.........we all have different incomes,hobbies and expectations so.... live and let live
#35
At least the leisure/commuting riders who purchase these won't pull the same stunts like riding through red lights and zebra crossings with pedestrians on like the lycra clad muppets who think society owes them the right of way on any piece of available tarmac.
#36
For £35 though, it's most likely utter *****, but you honestly cannot complain.
#37
An easy ride for £35, can't complain! So what if it fall's apart, you simply take it back! Would probably recommend this for short trips, probably wouldn't be too good for a 10 mile commute, but I suppose you can't tell until you try it!

When I started cycling again years ago, I bought these el cheapo. It got me cycling again, then I bought a more decent bike after a while. So, if it gets you cycling, why not? And yes, I am a bike snob now, but everyone has to start somewhere. I actually took one of these to a proper mountain bike course (as I was really a beginner) and we both survived.
#39
I helped a neighbour set up one of these bikes after she bought it.

At this price the components ARE sub-standard. As a lot of people have pointed out this generally means a heavy bike that will rust quickly - however the brakes on these are particularly shoddy I wouldn't risk commuting on one. Suitable for light leisure use only.

I cant see how this is wasting your money. I spend 60 a week on petrol just getting to work. People can cycle to train stations and jump on the train. It pays for itself in a few days for me. I honestly dont think JJB are that reputable / expert when it comes to bikes either though!
