Terrain Anaconda 20" BMX £70.00 delivered at Tesco Direct - Is it any good?

babymebabyme

I'm actually posting this deal to get some feedback, rather than claiming that it's hot...
I've seen it posted when it's been on offer before, and I also saw the Dunlop Edge for £50 at Sports direct. I've read feedback saying they're both pretty poor quality, but this one has got really good reviews on Reevo - are they to be relied on? They mention gears in the reviews, but this bike doesn't have any, so I'm confused... Is this bike any better than the Dunlop bike: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dunlop-edge-bmx-20-inch-53-99-deliv/777392/#post9586713
I really don't want to spend more than £70, so is this a good deal for that sort of money, or is there better quality to be had elsewhere...?
Would be grateful for your input!

    My son and step daughter have this bike and it seems ok for the money. Sons does seem to get many punctures but step daughter fine. My son also has a reebok BMX which has been nothing but trouble with. Not a bad bike for cheap money and looks ok to.

    Ok for a kid that occasionally uses a bike. If your kid lives on their bike and or goes to sk8 parks you will need to spend a lot more if you want it to last.

    I have not had this particular make but have had bikes from Tesco and Toysrus etc. Having four young children and would say that for cheap bikes I would always go for Halfords apollo. I am sure others will disagree but that is my opinion

    Neither of these bikes will have gears (bmx's shouldn't have gears anyway). Both will be a bit cheap and nasty but I think you'd find little difference between the two for a kid to hack around on. I personally as much as I hate to admit it would go for the dunlop. Then spend the extra 20 taking it to someone who knows how to set a bike up properly and check its safe.

    These cheap bikes normally come setup terribly or not at all leaving you to do it. If you're confident to set the brakes and headset bearings up, crank bearing are normally fitted with no grease also, then great. You've saved 20 quid and can get some trick nuts for it. (on a bmx its all about the gyro and trick nuts for the kids)

    Like he said above this isn't going to last on a skate park or similar but as a kids hack bike. Its cheap and cheerful.

    For £70 you're not going to get a proper BMX.
    If it's just for riding around then it'd just about do.
    Also good to see that it has pedals and doesn't have a Giro Electric Headset. oO

    Fantastic advice in plain English! thanks a lot!

    oh and taking it to someone to set up properly will make it much better and nicer to ride. As for stopping punctures its pretty easy! if they're from thorns pop some of that slime sealant in the tyres. If when you look at the tube its as if its been pinched and theres two little splits in it then the tyres aren't pumped up hard enough. Pump them to the max limit indicated on the side of the tyre. (it will also make it easier to pedal for the little fella)

    Hi My lad has the Reebok Void from Halfords and seems very happy with it. I know you cannot believe thge Halfords pricing discount cons but until the end of today you can have this for £81 - has full 360 degree handlebars, front and rear pegs etc and will be set up by Halfords with free 6 weeks 'service' so at least you have some sort of comeback.

    Sounds great but says ....We are very sorry, but no UK store currently has the item you require in stock.

    Why do kids insist on these BMX bikes? They are useless for anything but posing and stunts, and most of them will never actually do stunts. If you can't talk them into a proper bike, preferably a hybrid rather than a mountain bike or racer, then yes, buy the cheapest . It will last long enough for them to realize what a pain it is to ride any distance on it.
