Every cheap bike deal posted on HUKD creates a lot of argument, often because full suspension bikes are offered at impossibly low prices (ie impossible to sell a decent, well made bike with all the gizmos for such a low price). These bikes catch out the unwary but are almost guaranteed to disappoint: horrible to use and inherently poor quality (some would claim dangerous too).

I post this as an example of what can be bought for (just) under £100.
It has a fairly basic spec but comes from a well regarded retailer and is supplied built up and tested. Components are from respected manufacturers, eg Shimano 21 speed gears, KMC chain. The frame has a 5 year guarantee and the other non wearing parts 2 years.

Three frame sizes are available and there is a sizing guide with the details on the link.

Winner 'Best Budget Bike 2010' on the Gadget Show (does that mean much?).

Decathlon are Europe's largest sports retailer and this is part of their own brand range: no doubt they achieve this low pricing through enormous buying power.

If there is a downside to this deal it is that Decathlon has a fairly limited number of stores in the UK (8 I believe, incl N Ireland), though more are opening and they will deliver (see site for details).

If you are looking for a bargain bike I really think this is likely to be the best start point for something much less likely to disappoint.

PS It's well worth browsing the enormous range of B'Twin bikes on the site too.

Can't grumble for less than £100. I've just spent nearly that on a pair of pedals and a pannier bag.

Well said, I slated the previous deals but if £100 is really your budget and it's a present for somebody else then this is just about right. (no stupid plastic bits of c**p attached) so therefore hot.

I still think if you are spending £100 on yourself then go secondhand as its amazing what deals can be had if you dont mind minor ware.

Thanks but I have to disagree re used bikes. Decent used bikes still cost real money and repairs are not cheap (especially if you can't do it properly yourself). Even a pair of acceptable budget tyres and tubes are going to be £30+, brake blocks £10, a chain £5-10, freewheel £25, etc, etc. And it's still a used bike with no warranty and probably unknown history. May make sense for a really good bike where the cost of parts is cheap relative to the bike itself but it just doesn't work for budget bikes.

This is a 'rideaway' deal on an honest, brand new, assembled and tested bike in your chosen size with decent warranty and sale of goods act protection - all for £100.

Agreed - much better to buy this or a new medium class bike for about £200 (check our evans cycles etc) than get a used bike.
