would it suit a gent who is 6 foot 3?
#2
Up to a 35.5" inside leg.
#3
In before some guy says his £2500 bike is better.

Fantastic bargain. I bought one for this price three years ago and it's still working perfectly, still getting me from A to B without a single problem. Anyone who slates this in favour of their super-duper full-suspension silver-plated hi-tech space-age digitally enhanced super-bicycle should be ashamed of themselves. It does exactly what it says on the tin so hot from me.

What store was this from?

Says upto 90cm inside leg which is about 36inches.
I'm 6ft2 and inside leg about 33inches, so I would say yes, you should be fine, not sure about the 15 stone though! ;)

I'm a mere 5' 10'' but I would think there's enough scope to adjust it to fit you. It's also sturdy enough for my 13 stone so an extra couple shouldn't be a problem.
Still, if it falls apart you haven't lost much! :-D

my pride if i'm riding it and it falls apart!

On the product description on the tesco direct site it says it weights 19kg! That cannot be correct. Does it really weigh that much? My current bike weighs about 9 or 10kg, although it's not a mountain bike.

You clearly miss the point of people who would post and say this is rubbish. You mention full suspension, all budget bikes with full suspension are rubbish so I doubt people would post saying their bike with super duper sus is better. This bike is clearly what it is priced at.
#12
You can always tell the quality of a bike when it is described by its wheel size rather than how big the frame is.
Unless it really has a 26" frame :)
#13
Absolute bargain, cheaper than a single bike servicing. Also much lighter than other supermarket bikes at 15 kilos.
I'm 6'2" and commuted on it for 6 months, 3 miles each way. Just don't buy it if you're a klutz at DIY, like most yuppie bike snobs.

15 stone is a pretty good weight for six foot two, unless you're a weakling :thumbsup:
I'm the same, just under 15 stone, 6'2", 33" inside leg, and fairly athletic (keen mountain biker & martial artist).

Does it really weigh that much? My current bike weighs about 9 or 10kg, although it's not a mountain bike.

A good weight for a racing bike is about 8 kilos, and a reasonable weight for a Hardtail Mountain Bike is about 12 kilos.

19 kilos is high even for a cheapo hardtail, but it's to be expected at this price range. Dare I say it; that's one of the reasons that us "bike snobs]" slate the Bike Shaped Objects so much, the stupendous weight because of the cheap bendy steel used. As I've said before though, they're perfectly acceptable for the kind of person who generally thinks these kinds of bikes are perfectly acceptable. If you want a £30 bike, go for it, it's your choice. It may be ok, it may not. If it's not (or you don't really bother to use it) then you've not really lost a lot so it doesn't matter too much. They're not targeted at people like me who spend their weekends up in the peaks or in wales, they're aimed at getting a few quid out of lardy couch potatoes who think it may lose them a few pounds - a redundant market who wouldn't normally spend money on cycling equipment (and - for the most part - probably won't really bother using the bike anyway for the most part).

And whilst you're in the supermarket buying your Bike Shaped Object, then of course you're going to need a helmet, a lock, some lights, etc, etc - and that's where they'll make their profit...

Actually something like this will be easier for your average person to DIY, compared to something more expensive - no bleeding the brakes, etc.
#15
What stores or is it nationwide?

Could do with a cheap bike to save me taking my high-end mongoose to dodgy places! At £30 this is the same sort of money you would pay for a tired old second hand MTB on eBay.
#16
If you order it online, they deliver it by Chinook helicopter (its that heavy)

:w00t::w00t::w00t:

BLEEDING the brakes? I think you are talking about bikes from another planet! Most short distance commuters or cycling pub-goers (and this is who the bike is aimed at) wouldn't dream of having hydraulic brakes. This is a cheap bike to do a few hundred miles a year until you have it stolen, crash it, or forget where you left it. It's hot from me.
#21
bargain, the price of a decent tyre!!
#22
I really don't know how people make complete agreement into such an argument!

It's 60 quid's worth for 30 quid. It will work OK but not great. It's for casual cyclists not 'enthusiasts'.

HOT!
#23
What a lovely piece of bike shaped metal!

In the case of bikes, you really do get what you pay for.

'Biek Shaped object' Classic.

You've got it bang on, super heavy and often with dangerous plastic brake levers.

This IS rubbish when compaired with my super-duper full-suspension silver-plated hi-tech space-age digitally enhanced super-bicycle. Why should I be ashamed of that?

This deal is a good deal if you like terrible bikes though. You're getting a £60 rubbish bike for £30.
#28
I just phoned up customer service and 4 of the nearest shops near me stock this bike, but it does come up at £30..

I am in the Bournemouth area

This bike will be fine for anyone that want to cycle to work, on the flat, on a journey of about 10 minutes or shorter. In fact, it is so cheap, you should probably buy three for under a ton (cash, not weight, although that is close too) so that you have enough of them to last a year or two. Then chuck them away when you get a flat / need to clean it.
#30
A pair of tyres alone would cost you £30 most places!
#31
Anywhere in W London?? Not in Twickenham and Osterley
#32
This bike would be great for the six million dollar man, his legs could make this heavy bike move
#33
Actually it says the bike weighs 17kg assembled, must have 2kg of packing material!
#34
we bought one last year and we had to take it back...Perhaps we were just unlucky, but we were glad we could take it back...

Bought one of these online for £60, just finished assembling it, and I'm impressed - for the price this is a good quality, strong bike.

I had a Raleigh mountain bike about 8 years ago which cost me around £200 back then, and this is actually slightly better quality than the Raleigh one was. Very pleased with this purchase, even though I wasn't able to get it for £30!

Anyone know if the "collect in store" price is still £30 - assuming you can find one that is!

Thanks
