I've noticed that CRC has further reduced the price of the Matt Silver coloured versions of these bikes.

I doubt for this money, you would find a better bike for casual cycling and light trail use.

Previously this deal was heated over 600 degrees and that was when the price was £180!! so if you're looking for a bike, I wouldnt wait too long to order!

Ok so would you say if i had £150 to spend on a hardtail mountain bike for general use and a bit of off roading then this is as good as it gets?
#3
spooky as I just found this also as I was looking at an auction one - this is a much better deal, the black paint scheme looks awful anyway imho, heat and rep due
#4
this is an amazing price heat & rep:thumbsup:

a friend of mine wanted a first mountain bike so i ordered one for him and it came a few days ago, dot get me wrong calling this a mountain bike is wrong.. and really shouldnt be aloud as it would fall to pieces if you went over a mountain.. but as a bike for pottering round on its not to bad and has a lovely (if a little heavy) frame which is a good building block to replace things on as they break (which they will)

so id reccomend these to anyone who wants to ride with their kids or just wants to ride on roads canal tow paths etc.. but if you want a 'real' mountain bike you need to put a few hundred quid more on top of this ones price.. maybe more.. depends what you want the bikes for, personally i wouldnt buy a bike to take of road for under a thousand pounds as id kill it straight away

good exercise good price

super price, ultra hot. Much better value than supermarket bikes.
#10
look all you hardcore guys and girls ,give this one a little heat and stop slagging the post ,we all know you wont get a top of the range mountain bike for £150,but this is a decent bike for the money so get over yr £1000s and get in the real life!!
#11
Good price for a basic bike. Keep away from those Apollo's from Halfords people!
#12
good price for a cheap hardtail which will handle a bit of off roading
#13
Advice for those doubting that this is a great deal:

If you're wanting to ride rock gardens, do 6ft drop-offs or beat Steve Peat down the Alps, then don't look at bikes under £150. :-D

If, on the other hand, you're looking for something cheap to do some light trail riding and general cycling, I'd be suprised if there's a better deal than this out there.

As said earlier, stay away from the supermarket specials - they're just junk made to 'look' like a mountain bike, without any of the basic attributes needed for even the lightest off-road use. :thumbsup:
#14
Gt is a decent brand, this looks like excellent value for money.
#15
Very tempted
#16
I'm 5'11" - should I get the large frame?

Thanks

A large should be ok, I'm an inch taller and ride a large.
Great bike for the price.:thumbsup:
#18
Only small large and XL available for this price :/

Im 5'9, will large be too big?

Im the same height and have ridden my Mrs Large (which is acutally a mens bike), and would say that you could get away with it, but a medium would probably be more suitable.
#20
same question as above really,

5' 9" tall
29.5" inside leg

What size do I need? Medium isn't discounted :(
#21
The medium still isn't a bad price for 30 pounds extra.
#22
£35 sorry
#23
i'm 5'9 and i ride a small GT avalanche expert hope that doesn't cause too many problems. best thing go to halfords and try one for size.

great price for this
#24
what sizes are the frames? i usually get a 17 or 18 inch frame what size is that
#25
Great price for a bike that isn't meant to serious off roading. It's made for some gentle cross country and around town. Hot!
#26
pww
good price for a cheap hardtail which will handle a bit of off roading


oooo get you - might struggle down the side of Mount Blanc but for what the majority on here will do to it off road it'll be absolutely fine....great deal...don't listen to the bike bike snobs.

Thanks Kiffy - That answers the question most people would be asking.

A 17" frame is a medium. I'm 5ft 11 and ride a medium. I found a large (19") was a little too close to the crown jewels for comfort when standing over the frame. I have short legs though. There should be a good 2 inches of clearance. But then I intended to go off-road with mine. I could have got away with a L if I was just using it on the roads of canal paths (or similar). If your inside leg is 32" or more I would say a large would be ok.

GT are a good brand. Their bottom of the range bikes are likely to better than anything similarly priced at Halfords (although their Carrera brand is good for the money). I think people spending £150 don't intend going over mountains on their bike so it will be fine for what you want to use it for.

I entirely disagree - this bike will take plenty of off-road hammer for the majority on here.

Bike snobbery strikes again. :roll:

Might want to keep an eye on the wheels though. Wouldn't expect no name rims to stay too straight with all the off road hammering. And the tires probably aren't up to much.

Still good for the money.
#31
great bike, amazing price!:thumbsup:
#32
How do the sizes work? Im 6ft 1/2 an Inch about 13 stone? Would Large be Ok?
Heat and rep added

Cheers
#33
i am a bike snob, but this is a good price for this bike, if your expectations are set properly.

you wont see a better bike for the money.

of course everyone knows you need to spend more to get a "proper" mountainbike, but for general fitness cycling, or to see if you will enjoy cycling, this is a great buy.

Well done. There are a lot of people on here that just can't utter those words.

Thats the first step though.....you've got a long way to go
#36
the whole thing about riding over mountains is crap anyway*, the reason people spend lots of money on bikes is because they ride as a sport. its the same reason people spend lots of money on cars - both will get you from a to b, but the sports car might be a lot more fun to drive, which might be worthwhile if you do it often.

this is a great price, even tempted as a spare so i dont have to leave my nice bike in town - except that i'd be better off with a cheap road bike or hybrid, as probably many of you would too.

*they should be called trail bikes or something, most people ride off ride bikes on trails. look at a mountain.. generally, they cannot be cycled over on any kind of bike :D
#37
Think of it like this: this bike costs about 3 times as much as an ultra-cheap supermarket bike, but is probably more than 3 times better quality. The reviews suggest that the components are not all that durable, but I would think that if you're riding mostly in town or on towpaths/other light offroading then they'll last just fine (With a little looking after - bikes love a good greasing now and again!)

don't we all, and this is the most durable wet lube i've found
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=7215
(and i have tried a lot of lubes)
a bike like this is going to have a lot of steel on it, so get happy with the lube.

I once bought one - and you're right, it was rubbish. Couldn't select half the gears, chain kept coming off. I went back several times and it always came back the same or worse. I should have demanded a refund, but I just gave it away.

Brilliant! :thumbsup:

Why can't these people spell either - fall on their heads too often?

Looks like a terrific deal. 56% off - just shows how big the margins must be.
