it amazes me how they can make and sell these things so cheap... ok i know that this isnt a mountain bike and it would fall apart if riden offroad.. but when you consider that to get a bike to the quality to be ridden properly offroad (not foot path riding) you need to spend close on a grand these are amazing

Can't really go wrong at that price. So often I have seen people post deals here for full suspension bikes at £100 and slated them as they are so heavy they may be made from cast iron.

A cheap hard tail is ideal just for kicking around on, lets face it no one is going to buy this with the intention of taking it off road but for what it is its a great deal.

One reviewer on the Argos website said" 29 April 2009
By bart from berkshire
Overall Rating 1 Star Poor

"The worst purchase I have ever had. The quality is beneath contempt." "

Another said

"ive dealt with argos a few times and always been pleased with the service and products bought. i ordered the cycle online and looked forward to it's arrival. when it arrived i set to to assemble the cycle, what a shoddy affair it turned out to be. no build quality cheap nuts and fitments. within the hour i had contacted argos and arranged for its return. as usual with argos there was no hassle in returning the cycle, and my payment was returned to my card., full marks to argos's fine service."

Sounds like the Toys R Us one at 69.99 is better then?

Its less than £65, you aint gonna get the build quality of a brand name. Thats how they manage to get the price down this low.

Of course if you want to get a better bike then pay the extra cash, for those on a budget then it seems a pretty good deal to me. Just don't expect to be pulling something resembling a Kona out the box when you get it delivered.

Dont want to start the predictable cheap bike vs expensive bike argument but £65 (carefully spent) on a decent second hand bike will give more bang for your buck.

Last year I picked up a Specialized Hardrock for £60 - It was technically a 3 year old bike but appeared to have never been used - (Bike had no grime anywhere, the bobbles were still on its original tyres and the cassette was shiney new).

A few months later I also picked up a Specialized "Hotrock A1FS" for £40 for my daughter. Its normally 300 quids worth of kids bike (who spends that much on a kids bike!!!). It was 2 years old & was dusty, dirty and had flat tyres when I saw it in the sellers garage but because its a quality bit of kit after a few hours elbow grease it too looked like new.

It may take a bit of homework & legwork but if you buy carefully youll end up with a bike which is looks better, is safer, a better ride and will last you longer than buying new / cheap.

Sounds more a case of you getting lucky, Specialized Hardrocks in good nick still go for £200 on a well known auction site and finding a deal like you got may well be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

I was indeed lucky with the Hardrock but the point is there are good bikes being sold reasonably cheaply if you look in the small ads & notices in supermarkets.

I've also directed friends / family / colleagues in the direction of about about 6 or 7 bikes in the last year or so all under £70 which I considered good value for money.

I do look on ebay too but bikes often seem to go above the price that would qualify as a bargain.

As I said might take a little legwork but good quality bikes are out there for small bucks.
