Am considering changing my "raleigh" bike,,are these dunlop ones any good??
#4
Not as good as raleigh ,usually heavy.But for the price very good value.A good around town bike
#5
Great Price, but how much do they hit you 4, for p&p?
Shame it's a ladies bike thou. So the colours seem anyway.

17kg for a child's bike? Something they may use a couple of time but not enjoy. If you want to get kids into cycling, it's worth buying a decent bike imo or at least a hardtail which will be lighter.

If you want to buy a gift for someone elses kid, go for it :)

Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish.

Heavy, slow, horrible, unreliable and probably dangerous.

Buy a second hand proper bike.

cheers, ordered 1........plus some football tops.

Everyone who has bought one of these bikes has said they are terrible quality, break and fall apart. Voted cold for that reason.

Bought dunlop bike from them for my son. Front wheel kept coming off, even took it to a bike shop to get it fixed on properly and still it came off.

They look nice but would invest in a proper front wheel and replace the quick release wheel..

Is it possible to upgrade to a £45 bike? Whatever's wrong with your current bike will be broken on this as soon as you get it out of the box.

Its really not ideal. You'll pogo stick along the road, get fed up with the immense weight and terrible handling, leave it outside for a year and take it to the dump.

These cheap, horrible bikes really that bad.

They look nice? Sorry but they look like crap. There's a reason why rear suspension bikes start at around £600. The rear suspension on this is basically completely unnecessary, heavy, pointless, inefficient and of very poor quality. Buy a hard tailed second hand bike or better still buy one that doesn't have any suspension at all if you're buying something you're going to ride on the road.

The suspension will only slow you down, whether it's front or back suspension as it's heavy and will make you bounce. I hope this post doesn't come across as a bit elitist, it's just you'd be so much better off buying something a little more expensive than this second hand and then taking it to a local bike shop to get it looked over. Then you'll have something which is of reasonable quality, safe and reasonably priced. These bikes may be cheap but they are not a good deal.

Bought one of these for my 12 year old daughter last month and have had no problems with it so far. She loves it, perfect colours for her and and to be honest I wasnt about to pay out hundreds on a bike that will probably be dropped on the floor and scraped past walls every 5 mins.
Yes there are better bikes but will my 12 year old appreciate them? - no.....
Voted hot!!
#21
Cheap dual suspension will be a pain riding around town and I'd be amazed if this can handle the type of rough trails where dual suspension is useful. It's cheap, but not a good deal. I don't know why they put so many features onto cheap bikes like this - wouldn't it be better to have a basic bike with things that work as well as possible at the price point?

Lots of towns now have a shop that refurbs/recycles old bikes - old raleighs etc. tend to start at under £50. Otherwise, you'll often see OK bikes in he classifieds or on ebaby for around the £50 mark. A decent secondhand bike would be a much better deal.
#22
For everyone that says they fall apart straight away... Is there no warranty ?

Why are they allowed to sell them if they fall apart straight away ?

If you've only got £45 to spend on a bike spend it on a simple one with less to go wrong and the chance that it's better made. Comparing it to much more expensive machinery is pointless and irrelevant but you really aren't going to get a decent bike with dual sus, etc for anything like this price.

The Dunlop brand is a 'legal scam' by the way. Sports Direct own the rights to a whole range of once respected brands and put them on all sorts of tat to catch the naive.
#24
For **** sake, don't waste your money! If you must buy a sub 100 quid MTB, even a Halfords Trax or Apollo is better than this pile of poo!

Keep an eye out for police auctions in your town, pick up a proper bike used rather than this piece of dangerous rubbish. Its like knowingly driving your kids to school in a cut n shut write off.

Guide to a getting a good deal on a bike.

1) search gumtree in your local area etc.

2) Once you've identified several bikes, ask about them on a cycling forum like http://www.cyclechat.net

3) Once you've got some advice, buy the bike of your choice, take it down to a local bike shop and get it serviced.

This will mean you buy a bike which affordable, safe to use, of reasonable quality, will be a joy to ride and is unlikely to fall apart.

You'll also be supporting your local bike shop, which really could do with some business given halfords dominance in the market. You'll be recycling a bike which is good for the environment, and you'll also reduce demand for bikes like this and not support some large corporation like sportsdirect.

By all means if you wish take it to halfords where it might be cheaper to get it serviced but then you run the risk of dodgy workmanship. Halford servicing is a bit hit and miss unfortunately.

Love how people leap on cheap bike deals, saying with absolute authority that they're death traps etc.

Well, as a counter argument, I had a similar bike for 5 years which I used daily to get me to and from the station. Probably about 4 miles a day in total, so nothing too hardcore, but far enough that I'd prefer not to walk.

Could have lived without the dual suspension, but it was fine, if a little too springy. Didn't notice it after the bedding in period though, and at the end of the day it was a dirt cheap bike. So cheap, that when it was nicked I was annoyed but didn't find myself in a position where I couldn't replace it.

I currently have an old Raleigh racer, which everybody tells me is a very well made bike, that'll never do me wrong, but which I've probably changed more parts on in the last 18 months that in the entire 5 that I owned my previous one.

Obviously don't try and climb mountains with something like this, but as a cheap runaround just keep the parts tightened, maybe spend a fiver on sturdier nuts etc if any parts look like a particularly weak link, and ignore the naysayers.
#29
Thanks for the link. This bike is not suitable but the football and princess ones at £45 each are just what I was looking for as Christmas presents. My son prefers his scooter and will probably grow out of this in 2 years time so I really don't want to spend over £100 on a bike to go rusty. same with my daughters 14 inch one.

So will these bikes be safe for my 6 & 7 year olds to use or not? it's up and down in here, i need 2 bikes for christmas for my kids.


The suspension is of such poor quality (particularly the rear) that most of the pedalling effort will be transferred into making the bike bob up and down, rather than translate into forward motion. That, combine with a weight of 13kg for a kids bike (!!!) will mean they'll be knackered before they've left the end of your drive!

If you want your kids present to still be used on Boxing Day, spend a bit more money - it really would be worth it in the long run. As mentioned before, full-suss bikes might look cool to a youngster, but you're much better off with a better quality rigid or hard-tail bike to start with.

Look on-line at Evans, Winstanleys or Chain Reaction Cycles and look for 20" wheel bikes to get an idea of what decent bikes are available.

I did not realise all the £50 bikes were kids ones... I need something cheap to get my mail to the PO and back in the afternoon... Only a flat main road to travel on, 5 mins each way or 10+mins walking.... So this would be no good then ?

What do you reccomend ?

I'm sure some people on here would tell you to spend £300 plus for your five minute journey each day... personally I'd buy the dunlop if you have a v.short journey as one other poster said you can leave it probably unlocked and not care if it gets nicked at this price.
#33
Thanks everyone,,will now be sticking with my old knackered Raleigh lol
#34
lol, save yourself from wasting money on this rubbish and just get a rigid bike. There is no reason to have a "full sus" on a bike like this even though its barely functional. The cheap parts on this bike just means more things to break on it.

Tip: Don't bother with this bike and buy a rigid!

Its not the cost that most people are complaining about. Full suspension bikes are used for off road riding to absorb the impacts of the terrain, having a full sus will absorb some of the pedalling power. Given that this bike can barely be used as a road bike let alone off-road removes the entire point of having a full sus.
Get yourself a full rigid with the same money on gumtree, last longer and better build.
#36
Just my two cents worth.
If you are into mountain biking I would suggest that you invest in a proper mountain bike.
Try your local bike centre, i.e. Chain Reactions or Halfords
They are not cheap (entry level is £200+) but you when you try one of these you will never look back.

You can bet though that 9 out of 10 people who buy this full suspension bike will never use it off-road, if they did anyway it would break pretty quickly. This is one of the reasons why full suspension bikes cost so much, they take a lot of punishment.

Even the cheapo hard tail and front asda bikes are better than this, at least with those the energy you put into the bike is converted into forward motion and they're not exactly expensive. I disagree with you by the way about price. You don't have to pay £200+ for an entry level bike from those places. Some good offers pop up occasionally. You'll be able to pick up on okish (well not great) hybrid for under £200 I imagine but hey why buy new anyway? Just buy second hand and get the bike serviced.

Here's the sort of thing I mean although a tad over £200.

Great bike but I picked one up off ebay a year ago for £50. It was an older model but just needed a service. Job don.

Cheap bikes are ok as long as you avoid any form of suspension be it front or rear. I've seen respectable rigid bikes at low prices. If your trying to loose weight it doesn't matter if the frame is steel and a bit heavier. Cheap dual suspension bikes are a bit of a joke though. Don't get dual suspension like this if your fat. The suspension will just drop to nothing.
#39
@ MAxmix. The one Zozorba -posted looks like a decent, cheap, rigid bike. As long as there are no really steap hills it looks ideal.

Hilarious that there's a 2 year guarantee on the shocks as it hasn't got any (which is part of the appeal)
#40
There's lots of good advice in this thread but I have to say that the popular recommendation of a used bike is very suspect. In theory you can get a 'quality' bike at a lower price this way but the reality of bike spares pricing is that you don't have to replace much to be out of pocket, even if you're capable of doing the work yourself. Even a pair of half decent tyres and tubes will knock you back at least £30. A new chain is probably a tenner and they'll recommend replacing the freewheel and chainring with it (easily another 50 quid plus). Even a set of brake blocks will set you back £5-£10.

For the non-technical, non-enthusiast I'd say spend around £100 or so (probably a little more) on a very simple (NO SUS!) bike from a proper brand and/or a shop you can trust. As suggested in an earlier post, Decathlon's own brand bikes look good value if there's one near you. The hated Halfords has been doing some big reductions on Raleigh recently (no, they're not from Nottingham any more but they are usually acceptable quality).
