IMHO, a good deal.

I never had any regrets purchasing by 2010 Caldera, albeit at £670.

If I were in the market for a new HT, I'll give this deal a serious look.

Heat added.

Pretty good :)

Kona full suspension under £1000 looks like a good deal

hot finds!!
Happy trails..! Think i'd go for this bargain one though- Scanduim frame, great spec, and very light (Kona's arent usually..) http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=75087

This is a pretty good deal considering the normal price but bear in mind kona's are one of the heavier brands and generally you can get a better spec with other brands such as trek / specialized.

If you fancy building your own there are a few good frames on sale, my brother just had this one delivered for 65% off.

How's the Tanuki Deluxe rate? I just love the look of that bike but I know looks aren't everything, especially when they divorce you and take all your money.

No adult sizes unfortunately.

Depends what sort of cycling your wanting it for, mate. For a lot of downhill stuff, a lot of us are going heavier

Sorry? The Kula Gold is available in all (adult) sizes.

Tempted to go for one of those myself as I've just completed a bike-to-work scheme.

Some people have money to burn, a very similar full suspension bike can be had for much less, and with 50% off at the moment. LINK

Thats amazing, exactly the same spec but for only £50. No wait thats a pile of .....

Don't feed the troll, it encourages them to stick around (bit like seagulls).

As for what bike is suitable, depends on your use. We both have 400 quid hardtails and find that they really are pushing it on the local tracks. Hence him building the new softy, proper tool for the job. My bike is mainly used for commuting nowadays so I won't be bothering, I got lazy!

LOL that's amazing. Tell you what Goose, I'm doing the Megavalanche this year, you come and race that and I'll be delighted to pay for your race entry. Suggest you spend what you've saved on body armour and a really, really good helmet.

With the crying people do about how decent they think the halfords bikes are I really wouldn't be surprised if he was being serious

I was just about to order something from halfords on the cycle2work scheme but these offer the same thing.

Very tempted by the Cinder Cone. What size do you guys recommend for a 6 foot 90kg fatso? Been ages since I was last into MTB. I bought a new GT RTS1 about 15 years ago and then stopped riding.

The biggest 'Gold' is only 19".
Your average bloke 5'10"/5'11" will need a 20".
So nothing for a full grown bloke over 6'.

Why are you tryng to confuse people with this rubbish? I am 5'10" and I ride a 17" in Kona (and most other bikes to be honest). You sound like one of those fools who always buys the largest frame size and looks foolish. I bet you convinced your mother you had size 12 shoes when really you were only a size 9 when you were a teenager too. :|

At 6 foot I would say 18" would be perfect. If you buy a bike thats too big, you'll be fine on the road, but have zero control off road.

I'm 5'11" and ride a 19" and I'm pretty sure I could get away with a 17".

Years ago when I first got into 'real' mountain biking, this guy gave the best advise ever. He said whatever size bike a shop assistant or manufacturers figures tell you is the right size for you, buy one size below that.

im 6ft 2 and a 19 is spot on but depends on frame design. Sometimes wish id got a 18 for off road/downhill

I suggest you mind your manners.
It is unfortunate that you are not able to put forward your point of view without being abusive/emotional.

I have ridden mountain bikes for many years and am 6'4" and ride a 22" Kona Fire Mountain, I have tried smaller framed bikes (20") and they are uncomfortable and cramped, not having enough reach.

If you are 5'10" you need to consider other factors such as body shape, inside leg length, arm length to get the right fit.

For a grown man of 6' rather than a boy/teenager a 20" frame (hardtail) is the minimum size bike that would fit you.
2 Likes #38
You can't say 20" minimum for someone of 6ft, that's horseradish. Frame size is an arbitrary number, that only makes sense if you are comparing bikes of the same brand, it entirely depends on the geometry of the frame how this applies to you. The only way to know what size you need, is to sit on the bike in question.
1 Like #39
mmkay it's top tube length that's important, unfortunately bikes are still nominally sized by seattube which is a hangover from decades ago. even though many modern frame designs don't even have a seat tube in the old sense. so check those geometry charts geeks.
high end bikes tend to have longer top tubes, proportionally, than lower end ones.
i'm talking about mtbs. The Tanuki looks nice.

quick points:
Fit is determined by the TT length
Ride feel is determined by the chainstay length and head angle.
there's more to it than that but it's a good start.
