Was £199, lol.

Luke warm. You would be better off buying a decent second hand bike off eBay.
#2
Oh goody; another £60 full-sus bike which is close to useless!

Just because people have heard of Dunlop I suppose (their car tyres are rubbish, so what makes us think their brand stuck onto a cheap Chinese bike will be any good).
#3
I take it this would be useless for commuting as its so heavy?
#4
Was £199???

Call in trading standards.

I don't know who is the biggest scoundrel, the owner of this company or the owner of Newcastle United Football Club!!!

Went to link, still £99

Years ago I bought a 4 headed rechargeable shaver from Makro for £11.99 which was branded as Dunlop, it ripped the hairs off my face right down to the roots. I would have had a more gentler shave if I used a flymo............
#7
I'm sure it was!

You will find these in JD sports methinks,
If you know what you are doing it is worth £60 especially if you lock or remove the dodgy suspension.

Well it weighs 2.5 stones, which is quite high for a Woman's bike (considering it's likely to be 25-33% the weight of the rider).
Dual suspension bikes are heavy; steel framed bikes are even heavier; dual suspension & steel frame.....Well; you get the point.

If it's for commuting, why do you even need dual (or any) suspension?
Unless your commute includes off-road (for which this bike will be next to useless anyway) all the suspension will do is absorb a large proportion of the energy you put into the pedals (especially when going uphill).

good find - voted hot. The hotukdeals bike snobes rubbish any bike that is either less than £200 or is not one of the 2 to 3 makes that they know. Not everybody wantsa bike for tour de France .

Ian, you do make a valid point but being a 'bike snob' myself I warn people away from these because I used to be exactly like you - thinking a cheap bike would be 'okay'.... I actually still have two full suspension cheap bikes in the garage ...next to my Kona and Trek (£700 bikes). The reason I tell people to avoid these bikes is because they are so difficult to build when you buy them (yes you have to assemble all those cheap parts they give you), secondly they are very heavy and you put in so much effort to even cycle at a walking speed.... thirdly as I can testify from the ones I have in the garage, they rust and the parts break very quickly (ie: the parts that cost as much as the bike - the bottom bracket and chainwheels etc) Sooner of later you will regret buying these bikes.

I became a bike snob after seeing a massive difference in better bikes .... I am not rich, I had to grin and bear spending a few hundred on a bike but I am glad I did.

If you want a bike you will ride round a park once a month then spend £60 on one of these, for anything else... spend at least £200 on ebay on a used £600 bike and you will not be dissapointed...and you will also get your money bike when you decide to sell.

I dont need suspension, just a bike.

have had many of these dunlop bikes in my work, that have been so poor, the cost of putting them right was more than the purchase cost of the bike. a week old bike, barely used, needing both wheels trued, cones tightened, left hand crank needing replaced, gears and brakes needing fully set up, i just gave the owner a quote to take back to where he bought it, told him to threaten trading standards. what a bucket of bolts it was.

Trust me; if you want a bike for the Tour de France, £200 won't get you far!

Again trust me; if a full suspension bike costs £60 new it will be rubbish.

If you walked into Tesco and saw a 40" LCD telly for £50 but it wasn't switched on (so you can't see it's rubbish) would you still think it's a bargain and that people who prefer a proper branded TV (say Panasonic, Samsung, etc.) for £500+ are just snobs?

Also; Dunlop make tyres not bikes.
Anything (which isn't a tyre) that's branded "Dunlop" is because some cheap Chinese manufacturer has paid Dunlop to use their brand name.
It's a bit like JCB power tools; do you really thing a digger manufacturer makes the cheap £50 JCB pressure washers, or do you think they're cheap Chinese junk?

Whilst I take on all your observations, I'm sure my son will destroy it as he has all his other expensive! bikes.So disposable is good in my book.

In other words....land fill is good in your opinion and you don't care about the environment or your grandchildren's quality of life?

the leather elbow brigade are out in force. Give us your address and we can send you our old bikes so you can melt them down. I guess you guys cannot pedal a normal bike,lol.

Sports Direct own the Dunlop brand amongst others, They source cheap rubbish from China, inflate the RRP 'cos it's a "known brand", then offer it at a massive "discount". Mug punters snap it up and Mike Ashley gets to be a billionaire.:whistling:

Or at least he used to be 'cos he got to know the answer to the question:

Q: What's the quickest way to become a multi-millionaire?

A: Start with a billion and buy a football club!

Hi guys here is my experience of a cheap bike, this Bike for its price is probably okay as a first bike to learn how to put one together and have to fix, but if you end up wanting to cycle a lot get on the forums or something do not just go out and get an expensive cheap bike:

Please do not buy an Apollo bike and in my view any bike from halfords. I own an Apollo XC 26S. Their disc brakes fundamentally do not work. When they were first fitted they were hugging the disc (The front wheel did not spin free) I took it back to halfords two weeks later and complained, he stuck an allen key in and wobbled it, changed nothing and told me it should wear in, in a few weeks. It eventually lost its ability to brake in a moth (just did nothing). The back brakes were knackered in 2 months. I got my local shop to fit new ones for £40. within a year developed a back wheel wobble, had the wheel replaced. £30. Then my freewheel went, £30. I still do not have working front brakes, I went to Halfords to get some Brake Bosses to fit normal brakes on they gave me ones that don't fit. My front gear shifting has gone, so now I ride on the third level permanently.

For the sake of your safety, money, do not buy a Bike from Halfords, or at least not an Apollo, there is many cycling experts who know of quality cycles you can purchase, if you make a request surely someone will reply. I purchased my Apollo as a plain novice on Bicycles for £140, spent its value in repairs, there are things I cannot even remember. I put the blame on Halfords as a whole for even selling such a poor brand even if they do have decent models. Their service is appalling.

#23
I upgraded from a £40 tesco bike to a used 10kg steel racing bike from ebay last year for £110.
Not a huge leap in price for an immeasurable leap in quality. I did have to bide my time for a few weeks though.
#24
Sad thing is, buy a bike like this and it will probably put you off bikes for life, snob or not wait until you can afford a half way decent bike and enjoy it, you'd be better off either walking or getting the bus than buying this:thumbsup:
#25
I was about to buy one but have now been talked out of it. I only want to go to the shops occasionally.

Yes. real dual suspension bikes start at around £700. They're supposed to be a specialist kind of bike, not something you buy from asda.
#28
There is a place and a market for cheap bikes but buying one with suspension, twin discs, 18 gears, etc. has to be asking for extra trouble. Look for a basic bike at this price and it might turn out OK
#29
So, just one last question for the bikeys.

This is covered by a warranty or some kind "fit for purpose" legislation right? So what if it breaks? Dont you just get a new one or your money back?
#30

what a stupid post its a bike fgs, theres a recession on ,and theres kids who can get through these like wild fire .


Ever thought they go through them like wildfire because they are rubbish? Check out http://www.islabikes.co.uk/ and their buy back scheme. Trust me, you'll be glad you did.

+1.

At this time of year I would guess the majority of bikes bought around this price range are going to see very little use and will gather dust (and rust!) in a shed or garage, and eventually see a scrapyard.
Mens and womens anyway, kids bikes of this type / price would probably see more use.
(that is why the RRP stated by manufacturers is massively inflated to capture all the sales from people buying in this range)
So with that in mind, it probably is a good price, whether its a 'deal' or not is debateable IMHO as the £60 is probably around the 'real' price for it anyway.

IF you ARE looking for a new bike around this price, you would be far better getting a basic model with no 'frills', and I would suggest getting it personally from a shop that builds it for you, a previous poster stated problems with Halfords, but buying from there or similar is slightly better if you know nothing about bikes (which you won't if you are looking at this price range) than buying online, as you can always take it back to get the brakes, gears etc 'tweaked' at a later date.

As others have said, save your money, buy a decent 2nd hand bike with decent parts on it, you will see the benefit. and may actually use it !

Not voting cold but IMHO its not a good deal, as its priced about right.

Horrid bike. Yes it will get you from A to B but if you eat Dog Food you won't wither away and die...I like steak & Specialized :-)

I don't know where you live but most larger towns will have a good bike shop where you may be able to pick up a decent new or secondhand deal.

They will maintain it too.:thumbsup:
#35
I'm naturally suspicious of people who scorn "cheap supermarket stuff" and insist on some strange expensive brand nobody has ever heard of. But the bike people in this thread have definitely convinced me, mainly because I did once buy a £70 bike and indeed it really was rubbish.

What I want to know - a bike is a fairly simple machine, as machines go. Why is it so difficult and expensive to manufacture one that works properly?
#36
A couple of hundred quid will get you an entry level bike. Just need to shop around for decent offers but try not to spend any less than £200 unless it's a really good deal.

And try to avoid halfords or obscure brands at that price.

Not sure about the quality, but if after a cheap bike without suspension: http://www.fellia.com/description.php?ref=BK226LA-1244807130. Not used the company before but maybe others on here more in the know can comment.

'Cos people want something that looks like a Ferrari but only want to pay the price of a second-hand Mondeo. Thus the manufacturers build to form rather than function. That's true of so many things, which is why the knowledgeable buyer usually gets the best deal:thumbsup:

Yeah a bike is a simple machine, but it's the component parts that are all important. As usual it's the bits you can't see that'll affect the longevity of the bike. Parts like the bottom bracket, headset and wheel hubs and bearings. The wheels themselves will be a big problem if made on the cheap.

Also the cheaper bikes will have heavier components and frame. In an expensive bike you'll be paying for quality/light components and frame. Just as an example you can spend £1500 on wheels alone if you so wish! You get what you pay for is particullarly important here.

Ignore the Dunlop brand, it's got nothing to do with the tyre company, the name was sold to Mike Ashley who owns SportsDirect as well, and he's been milking it by slapping their name on poor quality unbranded products. This also includes Slazenger and Karrimore.
