Thanks for your post I've added a price and a retailer name to your title and an image to your post, for help with images please check out this link hotukdeals.com/ite…thr

Ooh, it'll get cold in here. Don't you know you're not allowed to post these bikes?

why not?

It doesn't need to be super-lightweight or cost £500 plus to be a reasonable bike, but it does need to have no rear suspension (unless you're wiling to pay £500 plus quite a lot!). That spring/shock absorber on the back is not just unnecessary, it's soaking up your energy every time you pedal; possibly a good idea on a stationary exercise bike but not a good idea if you plan to go somewhere.

hi i dont know if you mean this but when you say having the back absorber soaking up your energy do you mean your then having to work harder to pedal?

if so i can see that a positive in the respect of a harder workout.

i was also under the illusion rear suspension meant a less sore bum going over bumps etc but im quite a naive newbie when it comes to bikes and still on my eternal quest to find a budget( less than a hundred as its all i can truly afford and i only want it for cyclin to the park round it and home again) bike that i can get and be happy with

Basically these cheap rear suspension bikes are designed for looks over function. This means the suspension systems don't actually work efficiently or as you would imagine/think. Most of the time instead of absorbing shocks from the terrain, the suspension system just ends up absorbing the energy you are putting into the pedals. So basically you end up putting in twice the effort for half the results. These full sus budget bike also weight a s#it load which again makes them extra effort to ride.

If you want a budget bike then avoid full suspension bikes altogether. A cheap hardtail for the same price will do the job 10x better than this. These bikes are really just for show. They handle and ride like junk and will fall apart in weeks.

How big do you need to be to have a 26" bike? I've only ever know 20" and below?!

Its wheel size not frame size.

Or at least I hope so, or this deal is fit for the jolly green giant only.

I'm on a similar quest - I need a cheap but usable bike to keep up with my kids. The nearest I've found to your sub £100 target is this one:

hotukdeals.com/ite…872

I looked at one in my local store today, but they only had 18" frame in stock (too small for me at 6'1"). Seems an excellent buy for £110 if you don't mind it being luminous snot green (I'm hoping it'll put the thieves off!) so I phoned other stores and I'm off to pick up a 20" tomorrow. It's certainly a much better buy than all the full suspension bikes that have been posted here recently.

If you can't find one of those (or like a few people hate the colour) wait for a hard-tailed bike in your price range.
