just spotted these in my local asda (wirral), reduced from £70 to £40 for both ladies and gents.
i bought the ladies bike and have put it together in about 45 mins without to much trouble
the bike seems reasonably made and i am happy with my purchase
the asda website still quotes £70 for both bikes

Sorry there mate but you clearly have very little experience with bikes. These things are known as 'Bicycle Shaped Objects'. They're that price for good reason. They're not really bikes at all, personally I'd called them anchors with wheels.

Now that you've spent your money I'd stick with it. It will still go forwards alright but I doubt the parts will last very long. It won't be a particuarly nice ride either only thing is if you've never experienced a good bike you won't realise this so it doesn't really matter.

To a dergree you have a point however I think it depends what you use it for. A few miles a day along roads/paths (light use) would probably see this bike last along time. Also if things do start to play up, sort them out straight away and dont leave them to deteriorate.

One of my kids had a slightly cheaper bike and after pasiing it down to my younger one, using it daily for school and giving it a reasonably hard time, it is now falling apart. after 4 years of service.

I kind of guess this is the opposite to we saw you coming so overcharged you with a 50% markup
#4
entry level bike and nothing wrong with that-these are actually part of asdas "pedal power" event running all year and were being sold at no profit to get people interested in biking for fitness so 70 quid is actually the wholesale price.

I think at 40 quid you cant go wrong tbh-the bike purists may hate them but they serve their purpose-comparing this with some high end expensive bike is like comparing apples to oranges-pointless.
#5
They are £40 for Gods sake!! Cheap and chearful!
#6
the bikes where priced at £70 now £40 so anyone looking at this deal would realise the bikes are clearly at the budget end , and i would think people who might buy would only use the bikes for occassional use not as entry into serious cycling

Voted hot - very good find,
well done OP :thumbsup:

For gods sake - why do we have to get this response every single time someone posts a cheap bike?

Its horses for courses.

Some people will want a high quality bike, and spend some money on it - thats fine.

But some people will use a bike once in a blue moon, and therefore want a price tag to match - thats fine too.

Bike purists - please realise that not everyone wants or needs a high end bike!

Hot from me OP - ignore the naysayers!

what is it with cyclists?
bunch of arrogant snobs.
i think they just get pished that they spend thousands on a frame and 2 wheels and have to justify slagging off any budget bike.
plus they love parading about in their dayglo lycra and dopey cycling shoes.
i cycle over 15 miles a day , but nothing worse than the cycle snob.

There seems to be a repeating theme across this website that is getting tedious.

Find a bargain, people will advise that you spend a bit more. Yes I can see the logic behind it but the idea is that we find deals and post them because they might be useful to someone...but not EVERYONE!

It happens so often with Bikes, Crash helmets, Macs, Mobiles etc If you can post or advise a better deal then share it but don't slay the OP with derogatory comments about the product they post, it's hardly fair.

For the amount of use I'd get out a bike I'd go for something like this to tie me over so it's a great deal
#12
These are a danger , Seriously they are cheap for a reason, For a start the fork is on the wrong way and pcitured that way on their original attempt to sell these.

Horrendously crap bikes, good price.

If you buy one for commuting, you'll get through one every couple of months ... but hey, they come with a warranty :)

It is a Hot UK Deal !
No need for any other comment IMO

Hot ! some people:roll:

Dont say that!

Now we will get a rant about "Raleighs being real bikes for people who know nothing about bikes...."

Fantastic deal - this is just perfect for mum here who has been thinking about buying a bike but couldnt afford a lot - plus its only to go on the cycle path with my son on the odd occasion - not to go and do a Grand Prix

Thanks OP heat and rep added :)
#20
I'm suprised anyone posts any deals on here lately, all they get is why it's not a good deal in 'their opinion'
Get off your high horses!
Great deal :thumbsup:
#21
i agree its a good deal

the way i see it its like if your into football you can get a 99p ball which will obviously not be as good as a 50quid football but it still serves the same purpose

so well spotted and thanks for sharing the deal:thumbsup:
#22
Only mens (British Eagle) left at my local.
Still labelled as £70. Checked at till...still £70. :?
#23
Does anyone know if this bike will stop at red traffic lights?
#24
Only womens left at Leicester Fosse Park and still £70.

Shame, would definately pick one up at £40.

For £40 it's got to be a good deal.
Does anyone know the weight of the gents one?
#28
Trust me if you live in a major city and just use a bike to cycle a mile here and there, the only thing you worry about is having your bike stolen. At least you know that with one these puppies, nobody would want to steal it and if they did, then it wouldn't hit you hard in the pocket.

I have an expensive Kona mountain bike and hate having to take off the saddle and lock it up all over the place. It's just a feckin pain in the ****.

went out to get one at asda wigan and they still £70..will keep going back till they reduce them there too.
#31
Ive got one of these and they are fine.
also got a kids one for 45 quid, again, fine.

asda were flogging these at 70 quid with no profit margin, so to get one for less than thatmeans they are losing money, consider that before you **** these off.

i can confirm however they are no good for pulling wheelies.:whistling:
#32
Even at £70 great price. Still priced at £70 in Hamilton and Blantyre - will keep checking until they reduce them again. Only use them a couple of times a year with the kids so this would be the perfect price for me and hubby to renew are ancient heavy rust buckets they will probably be a bit lighter on the roof of the car too!

Sooo predictable!

Perhaps it's not for you then?! No doubt your 'entry point' for a bike is at least £300? Not a relevant comparison then.

Go and play in traffic and leave the rest of us mere mortals alone. And don't even think about posting a pic of your million pound, 20gm, carbon fibre toy - we don't want to see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Flicking through a bike parts catalogue the other day I saw a wheel (just one, no bike attached) for £1300! What's wrong with you people, money to burn? As if you had the skills to benefit. One skill you need to learn is when to keep your unwelcome, arogant, negative comments to yourself and move on. You cyclists need to take a lesson from the motorbike world - if it's got two wheels you're in the club and welcome.

This is a cheap and cheerful bike. Won't last forever. Won't win races. Cheap transport that will also keep you a bit fitter. No one will be fooled. Could even get someone interested in a better bike to replace it. Hot deal!

These people are daft - they have a years warranty, and after that - just buy a new one!
#36
Still £70 at Cribbs, any other stores in Bristol selling them at £40 ?

Thanks
#37
Just bought two fairly ordinary tyres for my fairly ordinary (ie cheap) bike, from a bike shop - £35 (and I had to fit them myself)! OK so these bikes aren't very well made but the value is fabulous! Use even a couple of bits off one to fix your bike and you've got your money back. Just don't expect carbon fibre or precious metal components.

that should not be covered by warranty they build it incorrectly , if i go buy a new deisel car and put petrol in would they would say "heres a new one sir" i dont think so, but this is asda so they will take em back in there hundreds!!

If they build it incorrectly, how does that reflect on the bike????? Thats issue with owner!

do you know these are in a box????
the new owner has to build it!
if built incorectly then warrenty void!!
if build correctly may give you miles of smiles,
eg: mfi wardrobe if i put a screw in thats too long and put a hole in the front would they admit its there fault NO my fault for incorect building, same with bikes if built wrong not asdas fault but they refund
