I'd love to see this bike take on any kind of off road surface, let alone a mountain :0

Is it really not worth £40? I'm not into bikes, but as it has 2 wheels, a seat and some brakes, I figured it couldn't be too bad :)
#3
Probably more like a mountain bike 'clone' or 'lookalike'. But for £40, who's complaining? At the very least, it's a cheap and cheerful mode of transport, or a christmas present. It must cost nearly that much to manufacture it LOL
Hot.

Well I think it is a great bargain! What do you get for £40 nowadays?

Yes I suspect it wont take much of a hammering once you got going down a serious track, but for popping down to the shops this is hot!

Quidco on this?

You're right - there's probably not many places that will flog you a full-on deathtrap for £40! ;-)

As others have said - for popping around on some nice smooth tarmac, it will probably be fine. Don't expect much longevity for anything else though.

oh no, I only went and bought one, just need to find someone to give it to now lol
#11
just curious, i added one to my basket for the sake of it lol but it came up £4.99 delivery? thought it was free as person that posted this thread said it was?

#13
Nice find, save the Ozone and all, voted hot!

I would never bother buying a bike from Tesco again. The last 3 I have bought from there, have had serious faults within a month of using them.

The 1st one they changed, only to find it was exactly the same prob. Pull brakes to stop, then wouldn't let go of the wheel. Had to get of the bike & physically force it of.

2nd one the frame cracked at the handle bar joint.

3rd bike, the gear cog broke away from the wheel.

NOPE, think I would defo spend my £'s on a brand name next time & get something thats going to last.
#15
It's not giving you the option to collect in store for free delivery? £4.85 delivery charge,unless you spend £50,it's free delivery at the moment.

But adding the £2.99 sim gives you reduced delivery.

Can't collect instore as it's stating Delivery 2- Large item courier
#16
They have them for sale instore as well :)

Very interested in this, I am 6' 2" can anyone say if this bike is likely to be big enough? thx

Every time something is posted the knockers come on.:roll:

The £40 MTB that can't off-road.
The £100 digital camera that doesn't compare to the posters £2,500 DSLR.
Etc etc etc.

It's £40! That's more than acceptable for a years use on tarmac.

I have an aluminium Gary Fisher Mt Tam that I bought 10 years ago for £1,500. I also have a £120 MTB which gets more use than the more expensive MTB.

Over summer I did the Coast to Coast bike ride(whitehaven to whitley bay) on a 50 Euro mountain bike from france, my mate did it on his expensive "good" bike which unfortunatly the cassette fell off of on the penultuimate hill ending his ride. My cheapy bike made it to the finish and after tightening a few nuts when I got it back home was as good as new. So just cos its cheap don't mean it wont work. And there was some off road sections which It probably coped better on. (or maybe Im just a better rider :))

Its perfection.
Do not buy this £40 one, it will fall to pieces unless you use super super super cellotape :thumbsup:
#22
i saw these in the telford store today , hot deal for the price.
#23
It will be far too heavy, get yourself a second hander of ebay. Generally speaking you should spend £200 on a bike if you value your comfort and safety. You could drive about in a brand new citreon 2cv but you'd be better of in a used focus for example.
#24
The last time one of these cheap steel bikes was posted I did a bit of research and it turned out it weighed 47lbs- which makes it virtually unrideable on any surface (and yes I did check the weight- it's not that far off being a bloody motorbike!!!) You've got to wonder how cheap tescos are buying them to sell them at £40- and how safe they are.

I don't know how they get away with selling these though, all bolts need to be torque wrenched to specific tolerances before a bike can be sold, and they sure as hell don't have any mechanics in Tescos...

The truth is any bike can be dangerous if not set up properly. A friend of mine was cycling down a short hill aged 16 on a £200 Raleigh mountain bike- back in the early 1990s so it was a fairly decent bike- when the unsecured front wheel disengaged from the dropout as he bounced it up the kerb- after almost a year in a coma, Brian was permanently wheelchair bound, unable to talk, and has really had no life since. He was only partially brain damaged- the part that affects speech and body movement- so he's lucid, aware, and terribly disappointed that he'll never achieve any of his ambitions, get married, or have kids.

Ride safe people.

mind boggling. most of the parts on mine cost this much. but then it weighs 10kg.

edit: i messed up with the size, sorry 19" is about average for a mens frame

This would need to be rebuilt by someone competent before being safe, and even then there are probably structural problems that you won't know about til something snaps. I would not ride this bike. the thing is, even a cheap bike can be doing 40kph downhilll and thats fast enough to give un unprotected rider serious injuries. i haven't yet had a serious structural failure (e.g. bar breaking) but it's something that haunts me on an expensive bike. landing on a broken piece of tube, getting cored, not pretty.

if you think how much regulation cars have - i think bikes should be taken more seriously. £40 just seems like valuing your (or your loved one's) life awfuly cheap.

btw the minimum for a "mountain" bike which is capable of going off road, for anyone who cares, is about £300 - something like a Trek 4300, Scott, GT etc are good at this price. so you don't care about off road? well, advantage is if its tough enough to take rocks and bumps, it's not going to fall apart on a city route.
I would have thought the min for a bike that's safe on road is about £150, it's mostly the time for someone to set adjust it properly.

billyX that's a horrible story. modern bikes should have nubs on the dropouts that prevent even an undone front wheel coming off.
#26
anyone have any idea if this'll be ok for adults? well 5'10" :-D

I don't know much about bike sizes except that they usually quote various frame size options as well as the wheel size.

Tesco instead quote an "inside leg measurement" for that bike, but if you look at some of the other bikes they are selling, it looks to me like it is the smallest frame size.

I don't think it would be any good for tall people, but if you are unsure, then the only solution is to try one in a store if you can.
#28
i answered the size q above. and seeing as this would not be off road geometry, itll com up even smaller..
edit: made a mistake see below, this is 19" frame apparently, about a medium mens size

Wow all these people going on about the weight and there was me thinking the bike carried you not vise versa lol

Bit of WD40 on the rim would have fixed that :thumbsup:

you'll be going on about the weight the first time you try to ride it up a hill! :whistling:

it's actually the rotating weight of the wheels thats most important to make a bike feel light, and these are most probably heavy wheels too.

Saracen Ariel 3 = approx £1500 :w00t:
Bit extreme compared to £40 and £329.99

Hot vote from me. I bought the £35 one from Tesco earlier in the year. Its been out about 6 times this year to follow the kids round the park on their bikes and it does it very nicely. All these folks that say cheap bikes are death traps are wrong. Thats like saying we should all by BMW or Mercs cos they don't break. Yeah right! The best selling cars in the UK are still Ford & Vauxhall because we all know you get what you pay for. If you buy this bike you know you won't get a super high spec machine. You will get a basic bike that does what 95% of folks want to do, i.e. ride it occasionally, and not riden hard or off road. And getting it for £40 rather than £150 that we're 'supposed' to spend on a bike is a bargain.

Move on knockers!!
#35
Interesting discussion.

I spent a good 4 months research into buying my bike (as a newbie rider age 42)

It's better to buy once, than buy loads of times and this, so called, "bargain" is a heap of ****.

AVOID. YOUR LIFE IS MORE VALUABLE.

Sorry Riaow, all cheap bikes ARE death traps - thats a very BIG FULL STOP.
#36
[COLOR="DarkRed"][SIZE="4"]Don't buy, I would never buy cheap bike.[/SIZE][/COLOR] Poor performance, not suitable for daily use. I got myself bike for £35 from Tesco, after my £350 bike was stolen. As result after 3 weeks it developed fault, that almost cost me my life.

:roll: :giggle:
Clearly your not a regular adult bike user. Id dread to think what would happen if your chain came off and behind you is a Merc or BMW approaching!

mind boggling. most of the parts on mine cost this much. but then it weighs 10kg.

26" is quite small (which is good), probably suitable for someone about 5'7" to 5"9 ?
I ride a 28" and i'm 5' 10" , and that's with lots of seat tube showing (cockpit space :D)
def. too small for someone over 6' !


Thought I'd join to post this since there's some incorrect information here. Mountain bikes are all standardly 26" wheels. In terms of bike size, that's really not the issue - the relevant measurement is the frame size.

Frame size is measured by seat tube length. Tescos doesn't specify frame size as such but they do have the main tube lengths (under 'features'): T/T = top tube, D/T = down tube, S/T = seat tube. It specifies that the seat tube length is 48.5cm. The usual convention for MTBs is in inches, so this is a 19" frame.

Assuming Tesco have got that right, then 19" is a size which is usually considered between medium and large, probably ideal for around 5'10" to 6'0", but will probably suit people an inch or two taller depending on the length of the seatpost (and if it's a short one you can always buy a new longer one for a tenner or so anyway).

I also wouldn't personally buy a bike at this price, but to me it looks no worse than the other sub £100 bikes you get kicking around toy shops, sports shops, etc. If you're not familiar with testing wheel, brake, and handlebar/stem bolts for tightness, take it to a shop who'll be able to do it in a few minutes.

If the bolts are tightened correctly from the start and the bike inspected and looked after regularly (and not abused), I don't see too much problem with this bike over any other, safety-wise.

Cheers Fatal Swan for some useful info :thumbsup:
#40
yep sorry when someone says "x inch bike" it 99.9% of the time means the frame size measured from bottom bracket to top tube.. which is what confused me, sorry, this appears to be the wheel size in this case. yes 26" is standard wheel size for MTBs.

a 19" frame is probably about right for 5' 10" to 6' height but you gotta try it
