cheapo bikes like these seem like a good deal but within 1-3 yrs everything gets tends to go wrong with them,better off spending a few hundred on an oright bike that will last a lot longer,also ride awfull

If this lasts somebody 6 months and somebody gets reasonably regular (and reliable) cycling out of it then whats the harm (unless it falls apart on you whilst cycling). Perhaps somebody who buys this will then take up cycling seriously and get a (for want of another word) "proper" bike (as on this they would essentially be a POB on a BSO).

Before it gets out of hand can we keep the posts just about this bike and not "it'll break, bad ride, poor quality , you should spend £300 etc" it's £35, it's a bargain for a simple bike wish my store had one

If your going to buy a cheap bike this is the one to get! Better to spend £35 on a cheap bike and watch it fall apart than 100+ on a Halfords bike, its less of a disappointment at £35 then £135.
#14
This was on MoneySavingExpert a couple of days ago. There were two replies, both saying they'd bought one and had to take it back. One of the posts claimed that one of the staff said it wasn't the first of those bikes that they'd seen returned.
#15
Whereabouts are these "British" bikes made? China, I bet.
#16
wondered how long it would take for the spend £100's is the only way to cycle
#17
Bikes: buy cheap, buy twice
Asda claims its new bike is the country's cheapest. It may also be the nastiest and most poorly built

all the crap bikes are all as bad as each other,a guy came up upto me the other day when i was out cycling and he said that the brakes arent working and that he just got it from halfords,they were hardly bolted on and could of been very dangerous and this was one of halfords ''safety'' built bikes

Halfords are laughed upon by the cycling community.

do you actually cycle a LOT? clearly by your comment no, and If not then buy this, if you do then you want to invest in a better bike and take peoples advice, I did not and I have had bad experiences with cheap bikes, I too now try to advise others, you can still obviously buy the bike just take the comments as Warning stickers.
#21
i wouldnt pi$h on a £35 bike LOL. youll spend that on repairs through wear and tear within 6mths
i spend that money on a seatpost!
#22
I own a couple of bikes, a £650 mtb and a £1400 carbon fibre racing bike. Whilst this post will attract some negative posts from avid cyclists such as myself I am going to break the mould.

This bike is not going to last an age or cost a fortune. Given the price it's a bargain fit for purpose!


HOT!!
#23
If you buy this then spend what you save on life insurance.

The previous asda cheap bike was sold with THE FORKS FITTED BACKWARDS!!!! They even had to pull the tv advert as they were wrong in that also.

Really people , would you get the butcher to fix the ABS on your car? Then why would you buy something from the supermarket , that if it fails could put you in a wheelchair or 6 feet under?

Cheap doesn't always mean bargain. This would be a waste of money and will probably end up collecting dust in the shed/garage in no time.
Save another £35 and "steer" clear of this tat.

Wow, thats dangerous :w00t: And most folk that buy this wouldn't even realise, and if they did wouldn't have the wherewithal to rectify it.

Just got back from Minworth ASDA and picked two ladies bikes up, only one left on the pallet and the box is damaged, no gents bikes though.

I did pop into my local ASDA but they had none left, so I couldn't tell you if it was national, although I doubt it.

The bikes are self assembly, so fitting the forks backwards is up to you :thinking:

The bike are not made in China BodZorg, you are a sceptic ...they're made in Tunisia :-D

I did get funny looks from two lads who were looking at the boxes in my trolley and having a discussion about them, then walked out .

Thanks for posting Matabele :thumbsup:

Thanks for all your comments, and most of you are right. You do get what you pay for with these bikes, and yes if this was to be a significant mode of transport it would warrant a bigger investment.

However for my limited use around the park on the occasional weekend that I am not playing or coaching sport it is perfect, a bargain in fact!. :thumbsup:

Halfords are laughed upon by the cycling community.

Yeah but they laugh at anything which isn't ridiculously expensive. Strange lot judging from the posts on here anytime there is a cheap bike and comments usually irrelevant to the item posted.

*** I feel very sorry for Mr Asda.
The chief exec is an avid cyclist, and really wants to help the British people get on their bikes.
A common barrier to this is price, so he sources and sells these bikes at cost with no profit.
(Anyone who is a real cyclist would have pointed this out as it was in Cycling Magazine last month)

Yet even when there is a deal on selling them for 35 quid, all the bikes snobs are out in force with their "knowledge" about how bad the bikes are compared to their Campagnolo. No sh*t Sherlock.

I'm sure the bikes are not up to the quality of my Specialized, but thats not really their purpose.
These are entry level bikes giving people a taste of cycling and to get them active.

Can you really moan about getting a whole bike for 35 quid when this week there was a hot uk deal on for 59 quid just for a chainset?

Good luck to those that get them at this price, you're very lucky and hope you get into cycling as it can bring you as it does me lots of happy memories and some great thighs and calf muscles :)

Well said again hwangeruk! Have some rep for being a 'balanced' cyclist!
#36
Well, just put together one of the bikes, about half an hour :thumbsup: to get it out the box :?

and about 20 minutes to put together, then 10 minutes fine adjustment .

And I didn't even get the instructions out of the box because it's quite idiot proof, err well apart from trying to fit the front reflector to the seat post :oops:

All in all I'm happy so far, we'll have to see what the girls think when they get home from school.

Got to agree these bikes are dangerous though, I'm 6'5" and the bike is a 17" frame, the sight to me riding up and down the street on this purple ladies mountain bike caused two accidents :whistling:


just a little off topic for a mo, what does 'gov' mean about "orange circles" :?

Just bought the very last one at Tamworth - thanks for posting this! Now just need to get it together! :)

Looked for these today at my local shame they didn't have any :x

Look under your username,

Members with high rep (that would be me BTW) give out more than others. The rep I gave the OP increased his orange circle from 1 to 4.

Just harmless fun really - but it does show appreciation for the post (which is what its all about!)


Thanks for clearing that one up guv :thumbsup:

Right, daughter has used her bike and loves it, a few things I've noticed are, both wheels had very slight buckles in them,easy fix if you have a spoke spanner which I suspect most people don't, and the one brake adjuster was cross threaded, again an easy fix.

I've noticed on the reviews of these bikes, that people are taking them back just because they don't know how to set them up :thinking: I would love to know what asda do with the returns.

Have noticed I keep managing to catch my foot on the front wheel when turning.


I found that today! Thought it was me at first as haven't been on a bike for rather a long time :oops:, will put the seat up a bit tomorrow & see if that helps at all! Still pretty pleased with it for £35 ...:)
