This would only be stunning if you got smacked in the head with it.

A cheap mountain bike is what it is. Is this pre-assembled? Heat added.
#7
I paid 80 pounds for the bike back few months ago...
And the speed twist thing is broken from day 1... (Not working at all, so I only got 1 speed...)
But still good value for daily use:)

It is half finished, you just need to put the wheels on and you are ready to go.

I've had 3 bikes stolen in my time, each costing avg £150. Think I'll keep my insurance in check with a cheap bike that I'll keep outside, only for use during the summer.

Get a decent lock, Kryptonite is a good brand which it cost around 20 quids and give your bike free insurance ;)

I bought a Kryptonite lock due to bikes being stolen, it is not messing around! Even superman couldn't nick your bike

24" wheels - it's a kids bike.

Cheap and good value are not the same thing.

How is it good value for daily use if it broke in a day?
#15
Yep you need to spend more on the lock if you choose this bike!

I can't comment on its usefulness for mountain biking - but if you are looking for a cheap bike to toddle along to the shops I would recommend looking elsewhere. These bikes are just too much hard work and unreliable especially for newbies. I've seen too many people put off cycling by this type of bike.

Buy something simple. Three decent gears are much better than 15 cra**y ones. The dual suspension just saps your energy and won't help that much with potholes.

heap of rubbish
#17
Wonder how much this would be worth in scrap metal?

edit: a good d-lock (They are quite necessary if you don't want your bike nicked) will set you back more than this bike. Kinda speaks volumes really.

Bouncy bouncy bouncy, not good for women with big boobs. Perhaps there is a use for these bikes afterall.

As others have said, the cheap dual suspension will make this bike go up and down, faster than it will go forward. Avoid it will be so hard to use
#19
Agreed a good lock would cost atleast the same as this bike. it might be cheaper just to buy 2 bikes and keep a spare.

The insurance on those bike locks are pretty bad they have clauses like the lock needs to be left behine and that no power tools can be used. For about £20/30 its worth putting (a decent bike) on your home cover.

Seriously guys this is a deal site, this is a fantastic deal, how many times do your children break a bike and ask for a new one you cant moan for this price. People voting cold is pathetic, you try and find a bike for the same price then you caan vote cold but when nothing comes close, vote hot or not at all. Thanks for heads up poster, heat added

If you bought your children a proper bike in the first place they wouldn't break them so easily.
This is seriously cold though, although probably the cheapest piece of 'bike shapped metal' around it's still a waste of £50. If you are after a bike and only have £50 get a friend who knows about bikes to get you a second hand one on ebay. It will be faster, safer, ligher and easier to use than this POS.

Buy this bike for your kid if you DONT want them to get into cycling. They will hate it. Heavy energy sapping steel frame with heavy rubbish suspension - will take any fun out of cycling.

Make sure to get an aluminium bike - without rear suspension unless paying alot of money. Then they may enjoy cycling and use the bike more than once.

If you really cant stretch any higher, much better to buy second hand.

ok not the best bike in the world but 49 is an amazing price plus with it not being the greatest more peace of mind that it wont get nicked
#29
may be worth thinking of it's use, if like my daughter your kid just goes up and down the street it will do the trick. If they are doing a lot of hills and cycling far then as said not the best. Heat added.
#30
which Kryptonite lock poeple would recommend?
#31
Whats the size you have to go for ?
Its been so long since I bought a bike.
Is it leg length ? What does 29" get ? 32" ? 34" ?
#32
Cold.
Yes, it's cheap. Decathlon Vitamin is cheap but at least realises its limitations and doesn't bother trying with gears or suspension which are entirely useless on something like this.

Seriously well put and valid point, if you buy this you will pay twice and be running your kids round for longer. Go to ebay and buy a decent branded bike, have it serviced at a reputable bike shop or by someone that knows bikes. Alternatively accept that you need to spend a few more pounds for a half decent bike. You wouldn't drive a car that you would worry about the wheels falling off and that only did 3 miles to the gallon would you? Well this, and bikes like this, are the bike equivalent of that image. Very cheap but for good reason........

Londoners know exactly what you are talking about... and I got my motorbike stolen from front of my house.... used an Kriptonite pad;ook that we found destroyed in the garden. So a £50 pounds bike to conmute in London is really good... I will get one of this intead of a second hand.. and will spray with black paint overall!!

Seriously. This is a deals site. Fifty quid for something half decent would be a deal. Fifty quid for a heap of junk that's not worth more than twenty-five is not.

Sizing a bike is more to do with the length of your torso and arms as it's the reach of the bike that it's most important to get right. Inside leg is a pretty useless measure for sizing bikes.
If you want something you'll enjoy riding, visit a bike shop, talk to them about your needs and wants and listen to their advice. They help you find the right size and type of bike for your use. They'll probably even let you go for a test ride if they're any good. Remember that Halfords is a car accessory shop.

Why get one of these instead of 2nd hand? One of these is worse than anything you'll find second hand.

The point is that if you buy a bike like this then your kid will only ever go up and down the street - because they wont want to go any further on it.

All i would suggest you do is get off to one of those cheap factory outlet places that sells own branded hunks of steel and road test a full suspension bike and compare it to a rigid and one with front suspension only. Fair enough this is cheap and i can understand that it looks a lot of bike for the money but once you have ridden one you'll see straight away what the difference is in energy waste and comfort. And kids will always go for a well serviced branded bike over a Yamagottchi super bazooka that ultimately their mates will rip them for lol I am not a bike snob at all and ride a mid range trek, but having had a few disposables like this i would never go back. Ebay is great if you are on a restrictive budget and most bikers are friendly types that will be happy to offer advice through shops or forums if you are not sure what to go for. I struggle to see how anyone would suggest this as an economical buy. As i said, it is cheap though....
#40
It is a small point, but one to remember, they are still making a profit on this bike. The mind boggles on how and where these bike parts are put together for a final sale price of £49.
