you know these bikes are going to be cheaply made, and will start to fall apart soon after buying, i would say it is best to invest your money in a better bike ~ £150 + with one that will out last this. if not buy a second hand one, again avoid these sort of bikes, to me these are like the dodgy illegal quad bikes you can buy.

cheap dual suspension bikes really don't work, trust me!

depends how you will be using them...

I've bought one for my son. He doesnt need one to last too long as he will outgrow it. I accept there may be a few niggles but I doubt it will fall apart. Even if it does fall apart it comes from a reputable High Street name and I will get them to fix it under guarentee. The only problem I have found with this kind of bike in the past is that they tend to be heavier than the higher priced bikes. Not a problem if you spend most of your time on flat terrain.

For £70 I dont care if he mistreats it or it gets stolen. I'd rather not have him riding about on an expensive bike.

Second hand is ok if you know about bikes. I once bought a second hand high spec bike and found when I got it home that the chain slipped. The rear cogs and chain were worn and I had to replace them both so it turned out to be false economy.

I agree that you get what you pay for but for light use I'm sure they'll be ok.

...yes they'll fix it, but it wouldnt be very nice AT ALL if it falls apart whilst your son is riding it!! :thinking:

Get what you pay for, but as long as its light use and supervised there should be no problems. :thumbsup:

Make sure you WANT a dual suspension bike, spring based quite inferior to the pricier hydraulic ones and not all can be hardened should you not want to bob about on any flat surface looking like an idiot while riding.

For a kid who will out grow it and most likely wear and tear it within the guarantee period this is ideal.

For an adult who will occasionally or regularly use it and will want it to last, expect the parts to start failing within 2years and realise how stupidly heavy it is versus a proper well built bicycle with a lighter alloy and superior parts, unfortunately such bikes at least £200, if not £350+ (for a nice Marin or Specialized etc)

PS: Expect to pay at least £20 more on top for decent lights which considering British weather is a must have for your own safety.

Thank you schizoboy, I agree with your comments totally.

Horses for courses.

Obviously more espensive bikes are better and will last longer. Yes a Ferrari is better than a Ford Escort but not neccesairy the best choice for the school run.
