This will weigh an an absolute ton, and will certainly put you off cycling for good.

A 12 gear adult "mountain bike" just isn't seen anymore (and hasn't been for about 10 years) neither have hi-tensile steel frames for that matter (prone to bending)

The free assembly part is a joke... the brakes will never work as they're supposed to even if its put together by a qualified mechanic, definately not if they're put together by some kid who happens to be working in that department that day.

For your own sake, please avoid

I'd second this view.

As i've always said, cold votes and negative opinions don't worry me, however........At £40 fo a fully functioning and perfectly safe bike for someone who doesn't take cycling too seriously, this has to be an absolute bargain?, as for the comment about the brakes being unsafe, even if fitted by a qualified mechanic, well sheer nonsense.

I think you are spot on. Not everyone wants a bike for competative/serious cycling.

Voted hot and rep added :thumbsup:

Will probably weigh less than a cheap dual suspension bike and will be fine for general road cycling.

nice find op

Is it nonsense though? In my job - in a bicycle shop - I see this type of thing every couple of weeks. We've seen various almost deadly assembly/manufacturing errors including;
brake mounts welded on off-centre
v-brakes so poorly made that pulling the brake-lever bends them
brand-new forks so badly bent they were rubbing the wheel
frames so poorly welded that they crack under mild sideward pressure
wheels with plastic bearings instead of metal that are good for about 3-4 hours use before they collapse

They're usually being brandished by someone who thinks they've got a bargain from Tesco/Sterling House/Toy shop etc, they're always surprised to hear that a pair of working v-brakes and a new rear wheel costs more than they paid for the "bike"

Do you not have pot-holes around your way? The front wheel rims are paper thin



£40 is just not enough for a new bicycle - how this can conform to British standards is beyond me

Time and time again people come on here saying ...............This guitar is just poor quality and not worth the money or a bike for £40 is unsafe and not worth the money.

Well from personal experience I can say that I have known people enjoy many hours of safe and enjoyable cycling on a £40 bike and some pretty good guitar players who have cut their teeth on cheap guitars before moving on to better quality instruments.

Sorry, out of stock:?

cold sorry, as out of stock :whistling:

Do not buy.

Hi-tensile steel frames are atill very common and give a superior feel to aluminium.

A cheap runaround for a non cyclist at a good price.

And Toys R Us vet their products well too.

So what if the bike is as cheap as one of my wheels.
