Looks like a decent bike, I've had a Muddy Fox MTB for 14 years and it's still decent.

good spot, as it is now £175, and i think the £10 voucher might work bringing it down to £165

Nice to see a modern bike with the gear levers in the proper place on the side of the frame (down tube shifters in cyclespeak) rather than this gimmicky business of building them into the handlebars.

However, reviews elsewhere online suggest this bike is a tad on the heavy side.

And what's a 700C frame? Last I heard it was a tyre size!

Unfortunately the Muddyfox brand name was bought by Universal Cycles (who make all the cheap, steel-framed, full-suspension bikes in the supermarkets) 10 years ago so it's unlikely they're still designed or made to the same standard.

Been discussed at length last time Tesco got a batch in. The thread is here.

In summary, old tech, heavy, over-optimistic RRP. Tesco is not a bike shop.

I hope that's you being ironic. You'll be singing the praises of fax machines and black and white TV's next...

I wonder if it's a misread/misprint and it actually refers to 7000 series aluminium. While we're at it, they're not 26" wheels.

I have just purchased this bike. I wanted a road bike for under £200 and I have one. The bike is to replace a 20kg mountain bike that I got 2nd hand for £30.
This bike wont get great reviews as cycle fanatics aint happy unless it costs £500 upwards.
However if like me you want a cheap road bike then this is a must at 11.9kg it is 1kg heavier than a £600 bike in halfords and for a work commute then that is gd enough for me.

It won't get voted hot because most people vote any bike over £100 cold. The bike police (I'm a part-time member) won't vote this one hot because it's OK (not a full-suspension, steel-framed Bike Shaped Object) but not a great bike or a great deal. So it's stuck in limbo.

As a commuter bike it's fine and as far as I'm concerned a sensible price to pay for a bike (you don't need the £500 plus stuff for commuting as you do or cycling my kids like I do). However it isn't a great deal - I've never paid more than £200 for a bike and all my family ride Trek, Gary Fisher or Edinburgh Bicycle hybrids - most (if not all) of which weigh less than this road bike & were much better deals. If you want a bike now this is fine, if you're willing to wait there'll be a better deal along sooner or later.

Just set one of these things up out the box and is of such poor quality I suggested to the owner that he takes it back. The components are of such poor quality that I doubt it would last 6 months commuting. There are cheap copies of components on this bike I have not seen in 20 years. What was more alarming is the brakes which are poorly manufactured are impossible to set up safely. My advise is spend a little more and go to a bike shop or buy a good second hand bike. Don't be fooled by the once quality name its a rip off.

But out of stock. When I don't have any cheap road bikes I sell 'em for £10!

The description is baffling: "Muddyfox Blade 26" Mens' Road Bike". As it's a 20" frame with 700c wheels where does the 26" in the title come from?
