Great deal. Been looking for a men's bike for a while ..... will try and convince my partner to let me have the amazing bike I got her for her birthday (mens mountain bike with dual suspension, disc brakes, the lot- which is rusting away in the garage grrrr) and she can have this one...lol

Heated as you seem to have found a mega deal. Unsure if it will be same price everywhere though
#5
£25 for ***** like this is still too much :)
#6
my dad tells me back in the 60s he had to take out a loan to buy a bike as they were so expensive compared to peoples wages. (comparable to thousand nowadays) how times have changed. And no he wasn't on hippy drugs.
#7
seems a great bargain to me, but I still expect to see lots of people saying that any bike costing less than £300 will implode upon first use or melt when it rains

your Dad is right ..In 1970 the raleigh chopper was £40-£55 (depending on model) the average wage was £25 pw the bike cost equal to about £1100 today!!
#9
I reserved and paid for one of these when they were on offer at £50. When I went to pick it up I was slightly disappointed and I decided to get a refund. £25 is more like it.

Heat added in any case. May reconsider a pruchase now.

Cue people who know nothing about bikes to think this is a good deal and ignore people that know about bikes telling them they are sh!t and not worth a £1.

Plastic cranks, usually plastic brakes, very heavy steel frames (great for your girlfriend to try and pedal uphill) and people assembling them at home with no cycle knowledge is a recipe for disaster.

It's your money, spend it on cr4p if you like.

Right on! Cheap bikes are at best rubbish, at worse completely dangerous. If you are considering buying one of these I ask you this:

Do you value your life at more than £1.50?

Why £1.50? I would be surprised if the brakes on this cost more than £1.50.
Somethings you can skimp on some you cant, a cheap pen probably isn't going to get you run over by a 78ton truck. A £25 bike easily could.

Cold! Even if this was free it would be cold from me.
#12
On the topic of bikes, anyone know what happened to the Rockhopper deal that was posted a few days ago?
It remained on topic with no bitching but the thread vanished. The offer is still on too. strange!
#13
Not worth the money at all, makes me laugh all these people on UBO's saying they're saving the environment when these pieces of s**t will be landfill in 6 months time.

A decent bike still does cost about the same. It's only these supemarket / woolies / pricedrop horrors which cost so little. Personally I'd keep my eye out for a nice second hand bike, they drop about 40 - 60% of their value pretty quickly so you can pick up a REAL bargain
#15
So you're condeming a bike you haven't even seen? You might want to bear in mind that some people do not have an unlimited budget, some people aren't bike enthusiasts and some people are just looking for a bike for occassional use.

Let people make up their own minds.

Good price.

Of course if you buy an expensive bike the 78ton trucks just bounce off ...:whistling:
#17
I am amazed that some people even dare to get out of bed in the morning based on their paranoia about other people's cheap bikes. At the end of the day some people ride bikes occasionally, and for relaxation/pleasure - rather than down steep scree hills at 40+ mph or weaving imbetween 78+ tonne trucks in central london.... Not everybody wants to ride 20+ miles per day or compete in extreme sports.

If you ride sensibly, and realise its limitations and don't have money to burn, then I am sure this would be a great purchase. I am voting this hot.

Good job you don't live in Oldham, the local council sell bikes taken from the Household Waste and Recycling Centre (cleaned and repaired of course)

I didnt see this one but on Friday I saw a post for the Giant Bowery '72 2009 model bike from CYCLEWORLD.CO.UK for 90% off. Upon seeing said deal, I sent the link of the page with the deal to my partner, and the bikes were indeed priced at 90% off. We did some research then decided to purchase two of these bikes for approx £55 each. An invoice for approx £110 was emailed to my partner and then the site then locked my partner out of his account. He emailed them to find out what had happened and they replied saying that it was a pricing glitch and they could not sell the bikes at the invoiced price (and that the best they could do was 10% off). Very annoyed my partner replied questioning whether this was some mean marketing ploy. The fact that the post was on hotukdeals for a VERY short amount of time (less than and hour and then vanished) and the prices on the website also lasted a very short amount of time - its very strange.

I wrote to hotukdeals to ask about the thread and whether they could suggest who I could take this up with but no helpful advise was given. Granted I LOVE hotukdeals, but its annoying when companies seem to abuse this site to take advantage of users.

Sorry to all who are interested in the Woolies bike...

Blimey, bike snob alert!
I wouldn't buy this as my primary bike, but we are thinking about getting oen for the shed for guests to use pottering around the streets when they visit on a sunny day. Lots of nice local places to cycle round 'ere.
For 25 quid, its disposable!
#23
Will have to find a Woolworthes big enough for bikes!
#24
£25 seems a very good deal to be... how many teenagers use the brakes to stop anyhow!! Thats why you have trainers!!! :p

I can see the lodgic, if you did 1000's of miles on a bike then a £25 bike will prob last you a week but for the most of us a bike is summit we use when the guilt of getting in the car to pop round the courner to get a pint of milk gets too much and we can't be othered to walk cos thats too slow!!!


HOT HOT HOT!!!

I bought this exact bike in the woolies in Glasgow a few weeks ago, I assumed that it was just a clearance item and not available nationally.

Its as good as any of the 'cheap' bikes out there. I was going to Centre parcs and decided that at £25 it was only £4 more expensive than hiring a bike for the four days. I quite happily cycled around, the brakes were fine (ie the bike stopped when I pulled them) - fair enough given that I was cycling beside my four year old son, I wasn't going very fast.

The bike was lighter than my partners £150 bike (from a bike shop) (as judged by lifting it onto the roof of a people carrier).

All in all I'm pretty pleased with my new bike. I probably won't use it that much, just when we go on holiday, maybe the occasional family day out (though the thought of getting all the bikes attached to the car puts me off slightly) and if I'm feeling sporty a cycle round the block if I'm on a health kick.

i used to import and sell 50/125cc chinese motorbikes and scooters. i used to get the same snooty attitude from hardcore bikers. however, over 90% my ACTUAL PAYING CUSTOMERS were chuffed with the bikes because they used them as intended, (ride 5 miles or so to work and back, at a sensible speed getting 100mpg in the process). the bikes came out at about 30% of the price of equivalent honda/yamaha/suzuki on the road price.
JUST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE BIKE PROPERLY CHECKED OVER BY A MECHANICALLY COMPETENT PERSON BEFORE RIDING IT,REALISE ITS LIMITATIONS AND USE ACCORDINGLY.

ps.this used to be called common sense when i were a lad. :whistling:

That deal was more than likely removed because it was an obvious pricing error.
I don't see why your partner is annoyed at them cancelling the order, do you really think someone would be selling a 2009 model in 2008 for 10%? By all means try and buy one, but to get annoyed when they cancel it is stupid - he should have expected it to happen!
As for HUKD, what have they got to do with it? A user submitted a deal that was clearly a misprice and HUKD removed it. There's no conspiracy between the company and HUKD to try and abuse anyone so I wouldn't worry.
If however they charged you the full amount then I could see your problem.

But anyway, there was no misprice with the Specialized deal so I'm still wondering where and why its gone.

Agree 100% - I've got 3 bikes gathering dust in my shed that are brought out occasionally. For a lot of people who just want to potter about occasionally & aren't using it every day to travel to work etc or go off roading in the Lakes etc this is a good price for this type/level of bike. :thumbsup:
#31
I'd buy that for a dollar ;-)

Not one in my local

Voted hot - if I can find one.

For all the bike snobs, try leaving your new £500 bike chained up at the train station/town centre and see how long it lasts.

£25 - perfect. Then no major worry about it being nicked.
#34
You guys that want to buy it go ahead.....I'll just wave as I cycle past you at the side of the road with your plastic cranks in pieces.

They couldn't sell the things for £50 ffs!!

By the way, I am still using the £300 aluminium framed Carrera Gravity I bought in Halfords in 1996. It's been used for 10 mile rides every day for about 4 years and plenty of downhilling at the weekends. All it has needed is a new rear wheel when I had a crash...nothing else and it is still as good as new.

An equivalent bike could probably now be bought for under £200 - not £25 but it will last far longer and be a much better ride.

My thoughts exactly. Can't leave my Kona anywhere. My Orange cost 1k and was stolen from work. Had some nice CCTV of it. Guy comes in, grabs bike and out the fire door with it.

Cant see the scally's round my way stealing a pink girls bike.

Like at least 2 threads mentioned, it's your money, spend it how you like BUT if you see a deal where you know that cheap does not equal good value wouldn't you post a warning?

Isn't this how the sites supposed to work or is it just on price now?
#37
Even looking at using the bike for spares its got to be worth £25. Like many others have said there are many snobs in all walks of life. If you want to pay more go ahead. If you want to get a cheap bike that might not get much use this is as good as any. And at a cracking price.
