very poor quality

good find by OP. Just be cautious - these cheap bikes can be so bad, a documentry was even made about them:thumbsup:
#5
Just bought one for my son very good for £25.

Suspension Type Rigid


Sounds good for £25.

ASDA and Lidl/Aldi are very good in after sales service, if something does break there should be no fuss at all in getting ones money back.

HOT!

This is going to be a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#11
Gonna have to agree with the quality police. Even if it does only last for 6 months, if it was to fall apart during operation, that, my good people... will be an accident!
#12
Ok that price is just a joke.

I cycle for fitness, to get to work and race XC, I've bought four bikes during the last 18 months which have costs almost 3.5k, my new X0 shifters cost many times the cost of this entire bike and I spend much more than £25 a month on bikes parts/clothes/food/tyres.

Buy it, learn how to build it, set it up, adjust it and ride to work for two weeks every day and you've got your money back.

Or buy it put it in the shed to rust before it gets skipped in two years, your choice.

Heavy bike with crap components'... forgive my bike snobbery.

But £25 :w00t:
#14
wow! guess people like to complain about everything!

Bah, you're not even trying - my stable of three (FS, HT and a hybrid for work) works out at just under nine grand :-D
I'm a fully paid up member of the Bike Snob Club. Doesn't make me a better rider though unfortunately, heh.

Agreed on the X-0 as well, the shifting is so much better and lighter than XTR it's like pressing a switch.
Just let down by the lack of dual-direction levers, really miss that.

Oh, and back on topic: yea, the bike is shít at any price, but I'm sure it's perfectly acceptable for the kind of people who think that that kind of bike is acceptable. :whistling: :-D

A cheap bike doesn't necessarily have to be poor quality.

True enough, those horrific more recent 'Universal' cycles with 'dual suspension' and '21 gears' - 2 for £50 or whatever can literally fall apart in weeks (bought one, it did).

The more basic the better in my opinion. I'd prefer a budget bike like this but with either no gears or the old 3/5 speed.

What's £25 compared to a tank of petrol and the additional health benefits of a bike ....

£25 good for spares if you have a 20" bike the tyres, tubes, wheels will fit (if you dont have gears!) the only things worth having for £25 !

I was just thinking it was Kevin Webster's Dad as I scrolled down the page, that saddle, it'll be like sitting on a razor blade!

I agree that the components won't be much cop but that is a lot of bike for the money.

HOT!


As long as it's not a limb you end up breaking :)

I agree, though - Asda were pretty good at taking mine back after it turned out to be dangerously faulty (didn't even get 6 minutes out of it, let alone 6 months).

However, I was far from impressed when they emailed me to ask me to review it on their website. My review was an entirely factual and polite account of my experience, yet mysteriously, it never appeared on their website, even after I posted it a second time. Customer services had no idea about this, so I emailed the CEO of Asda to ask if they had a policy of deleting negative comments and also got no reply.

So beware: if you're looking at the reviews on direct.asda.com when trying to decide whether something's worth buying, just be aware that they might be portraying a slightly polished version of the truth.

Where would we be without the bike snobs and chicken police :)? Fantastic price for a new bike.

OK - I'm not a bike snob. My bike is built from bits found in skips after my 20 year old Endsleigh got nicked (why? Who would want it?) but...

The bike in the pic is full suspension and the wheel size suggests a kids' bike. Avoid full-suspension bikes (unless you're spending hundreds) - they're heavy and the badly designed suspension soaks up all the energy you were hoping to use going forwards/up a hill. Rigid frame or front-suspension only!

If you want to buy yourself a cheap bike go ahead. But don't buy your kids a piece of junk that weighs a ton and then complain that they never use it, or even worse that they can't keep up when you're out on family cycle ride! I know it's cheap but go pick one up - if it's too heavy for you to carry to the tills with the rest of your shopping then it's too heavy for your kids to ride. Get them something a little better (look for a SH one!) and maybe they'll use it. I've seen too many of my friends kids put off learning to ride a bike or going anywhere on one because they were given horrendous, cheap junk bikes by well meaning parents or grandparents.

The bikes my kids ride now cost £100-£200. They both learnt on a Raleigh that cost £10 SH and 3 other kids have learnt on it since - enough money saved to buy them reasonable quality bikes and a carrier for the car so we can all get to use them occasionally!

Some posts regarding bike deals really annoy me, and it reads like I'm not alone.

£25 for a brand new bike IS a good deal.

If someone wants to pay thousands for a bike thats there perogative, if they do spend that much they are obviously very, very keen on cycling, which more often than not I would imagine would involve cycling at the very least as part of a cycling and/or racing club.

If I was really into rallying and bought a seat ibiza (or similar) rally tuned car for £80K+ would that allow me to belittle someone who pays £20K for a standard version ?
Would it be ok to compare the gear ratios, suspension, weight etc etc on the 2 cars?
Of course not.

All the folks who do spend a LOT of money on bikes should avoid these threads IMO, as the vast majority of them are blinkered and do not see the point in buying a bike at this price.

£25 to buy my boy a brand new bike for me is excellent value.

I'm willing to bet that it is much better vaule £for£ thanthe Grifter I grew up on.......

agree that its a good price, BUT you would be better off buying secondhand.

Cheap bikes are crap and thats a fact.

Heavy, cheap parts, troublesome gears and suspension.

as far as i know MOST children ride their bikes in the summer....as we don't have much of a summer in england it's not that long.....for £25 this bike will last two summers easy...after that your child will prob need a new bike anyhow as they will be growing.....i don't want to spend £100+ on a bike that my kids will only ride from july-sept every year and then after two years have to give it away!!

each to their own.....it's fine for my daughter

and...it's from asda...keep the receipt and any problems you can return it.....i bought my other daughter a bike from toys r us and spent around £80 on that...she bashes it about alot and the stabilisers sometimes get wrecked...it's been two years now and toys r us always adjust it for free for me...they even do the handlebars and seat up as i have no idea what to do with bikes! so if it does give problems then return it! and if not...you've got a great bargain!

A 'decent' Audi TT? There's no such thing as far as I am concerned, can't stand the things. New shape is supposedly much better, but the original car put me off for life - tried a 225, ride quality was shít, felt like a cave inside, wasn't particularly fast, and above all: far too camp.

I prefer the letters "TT" to stand for Twin Turbo so I'l stick with my Legacy, but cheers anyway :whistling:

Yes, absolutely.
Hope that helps :)

Although I'd say it's more like comparing a Seat Ibiza to a Tata Nano...
