Featuring a new frame geometry and fit that trickles down from our XC Race bikes, the Lava Dome is all about squeezing as much performance as possible into an incredibly affordable mountain bike. The perfect ride for those yearning to venture deep into the good wood.

Frame Features:

A from-the-ground-up re-think of our hardtail mountain bikes. First, we're introducing size increments that ensure we hit every type of rider. Now you can get closer to having a custom fit between a size structure (S, M, L, XL) that's consistent across our entire range of mountain bikes. New aspects of the geometry are related to the ride and handling, with slacker head tube angles, lower bottom brackets and shorter chainstays. The result is a more capable bike for more challenging terrain, without comprising speed and efficiency when under power.

Great price for a top brand... like the frame colour too.

How would this compare to a Specialized Rockhopper 29 (2017) Sport priced at £475?

Seems good, but same price at Halfords, so quidco and local setup etc:

That's for the 2015 model which I think is not available either.

Kona gets 0 results for me on the halfords site

My two penneth having owned a specialized hardrock and then a decathlon (btwin rafal 740 purchased following a HUKD post).

I loved my specialized but in retrospect I was paying for the brand, by btwin by comparison...

Lighter (much!)
Better components all round (a poor suntour fork being a big big difference)
Better warranty

If you can get over brand stigma then the likes of decathlon are great.

Hot deal nevertheless!

Bought my first Lava Dome in '91 for about the same price as this!

Was that the all black one or was that 92? Think the frame, project 2's and wheels are still in my parents loft. Might have to resurrect it one day.

Voted hot, it is what it is namely a cheap MTB, alright for commuting, canal towpaths, the road etc.
At this price range lookout for the lockout fork, hydraulic brakes which it has.

The more you spend the better the experience, remember deore is the lowest shimano drivetrain for true off-road, so take this to a trail centre it.ll shake you and itself apart after a few hundred miles

The altus and Claris gearing works ok but soon shows its limitations offroad

Mine came in white but red was also available. Project 2 forks and Suntour gears with thumbshifters! Bombproof and was gutted when it got nicked. Bought a Raleigh DynaTech with the insurance payout :-)

Mine was black with Deore LX. Hammered that bike. It all died eventually and was left with a frame, forks and wheels.
Happier days when life was easy and could just go out for a ride.

Je James Have reduced this now to £325. Iv just bought the Raleigh Chopper from their website over 30 Mins ago on the 25th so not sure how long it will stay at that price.

I've been watching this for a few days hoping it would go down again. Funnily enough Black Friday it did and now it's £325.00 just ordered mine!
