8y, 10m agoFound 8 years, 10 months ago
Just been to my local Tesco and purchased a Mens 26" Mountain Bike with 18 gears (Falcon Grip shift), alloy rims and front and rear v brakes for £40. Discontinuing them!
I know nothing at all about bikes and I all I wanted was a cheap bike to go from A-B and if any one else wants one I hope this will help

Would you consider these gents? More like kids, 26" is pretty small for a mens bike.

Good deal though.

You're forgiven, it's still near chuffing impossible to find anything with the new site layout....

I got one before Christmas too for hubby for xmas. I got it delivered to my mums house as we were out and the lazy thing hasnt ridden it the 2 miles home yet!!!!

I noticed they had them on the shelf at Tesco Mold, North Wales the other day and thats only a small store so they probably have loads knocking about!

You know nothing of bikes. 26" is the general size wheel for a gents mountain bike. I work in Halfords on BikeHut, so I think I would know mate.
#17
Great for the price....but built to a price.
Saw them in Tesco before Xmas and things like the derailieurs are made of pressed sheet steel rather than cast etc, but still a bargain, nonetheless.
#18
Word of warning, they call it a mountain bike but I wouldn't try it off road unless you want a pile of scrap metal, fine for everyday road use though and certainly not bad for £40.

There was me thinking it was a 26" frame.

Def says "Adult" in the description.

I wouldn't use it on the road either. I bought one just before christmas and its falling apart already. I'm only trundling back and for to work daily (an 8 mile round trip along a dual carriageway).

The front gear mech has completely buckled. One of the rear gears just spins freely.
Shifting gears is a nightmare. Some weird twisty thing.
There's no suspension so you really do feel the bumps.

You get what you pay for. I gave up in the end and took the wheels off and stuck them on my old bike.

You won't find many 'MTB's' with bigger wheels than 26 inch!

I'm going to save your post for all the people that say these are a good buy and perfectly adequate!

I can't believe they described these as mountain bikes. Going down a kerb hurts like hell. I wouldn't try taking on a mountain.

Once upon a time bikes didn't have suspension whatsoever. Instead, people used their LEGS to cushion any vibration or impact from the road.
Sorry that the younger generation are unfit and stuff but back in my day we could cope with a "normal" bike etc...etc. AND we listened to PROPER pop music, rather than this new fangled rubbish...

..check out http://www.sterlinghouse.co.uk/ ...they been doing under £40 ( mainly "Universal" branded - sell in UK Catalogues for +£80 ) bikes for years ( usually also advertise in the tabloid press and magazines etc )

...and...before the pedal afficiandos start their rants...THESE ARE CHEAP AND CHEERFUL and 100% fine for the casual / leisure / family cycler etc

26" inch is the wheel size... and even it was frame seize, youd need to be about 9 ft tall!

"Halfords - the McDonalds of the cycling trade" not true,
dirtypixel.... you sir are rude and a fool

Shockwave is Halfords 'cheap' bike range so I guess that probably cost you about £90.00 Basically, you are getting a £50 bike with £40 on top for the times you will take it back (and at least you can so there is some remote chance it will be usable)

Carrera is Halfords premium brand of bikes, buy one of these and you will get something as good as the big name equivalent at a better price - reckon on spending £200 plus to get a bike you could use off road rather than just for commuting.

Halfords also sell big name stuff like Kona - they have to have bikes from across all ranges - they are a bike shop!

I have a 1996 Carrera gravity, it cost me £360 when I bought it and has been used pretty hard off road, done quite a bit of amateur downhilling on it (I don't race, just ride for fun) and has been used a lot for commuting and just general keep fit riding on canal towpaths, common land etc.

All I've had done was a new rear wheel (replaced by halfords FOC - and it was my fault as I crashed into a tree) and I put some suspension forks on the front - my choice.

I also have Kona's/GT's etc and the Carrera's are as good.

You can't compare an £80 bike with a £400 one - waste of time, if you want to get to work & back on a road - a £50 bike *might* be o.k - but only if you know a bit about bike mechanicals as you will need to fix it.

As for sterling house bikes, it's quite incredible that there are not more deaths on the road from cyclists buying that kind of bike and putting it together at home with no bike knowledge at all. I've seen forks on back to front, brakes back to front, handlebars too.....and these people also let their kids out on them!

By the way, I don't work for Halfords (or any other bike shop), i just don't like seeing people waste their money on stuff that is not up to the job.

:thumbsup:

The other post is here http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=119740&page=4 but it was far easier to search on google for it than use the sites search as with most of this site the search does not work.

Just rang Tesco at Hampton Peterborough and they quoted me the £80 price. I asked her to put it into the computer and it stayed at the £80. Maybe the offer is finished now.

Erm, if you know nothing about bikes please don't recommend and make a sweeping statement about something being a bargain.

Like I've said before, you would not put your family in a cheap automobile and risk their safety, so why would you do so with a bike? Remember, the cycle helmet standard EN1078 is only designed to protect you coming off your bike at STAND STILL. It does not offer a great deal of protection at any speed, not does it offer much protection against sharp objects such as kerbs, railings, etc.

Now, no matter what I say, people are going to go out and buy this junk, so pleae please please make damned sure you get all the nuts and bolts checked over by a professional, not just to check they are tight enough, but also that they are not over tightened (yeah, tis possible, thats why all the components should have torque ratings - I very much doubt this bike has ever seen a torque wrench, let alone been assembled using one).

Alternatively, go to your local bike shop or a well know bike shop and get a bike which has been assembled correctly, using quality components that will keep you safe and last for years.

When your safety is concerned, there is such a thing as too cheap.
#39
I'm hoping the HUKD users are a shrewd crowd..... if you would consider yourself to be a careful purchaser then have a read of this article before you purchase a safety helmet for your bike.

Avoid this bike!!! It cost me broken arm last year and get pain till now! Cheap parts used. I bought it as a temporary replacement for my stolen bike (good quality), and in one week got several faults.
