    Those that aren't that enthusiastic about this deal, could you advise what the failure points are that scare you off?

    What would you suggest for similar money?

    My use is likely mostly on road with a little use through parks

    It'll be fine for the price (assuming you can set it up properly) though it'll be unnecessarily heavy for your purposes - you really don't need those cheap suspension forks which will just add weight and absorb your effort without providing any real advantage.

    It has some better than bottom spec components on it.

    If you get a good one (MooreLargeOutlet has history!) it'll be good value and better than many at this price point as long as your expectations aren't too high. (edited)

    This is mountain bike style rather than actual mountain bike admittedly though it does look like a mountain bike but there is no chain retention and it has a weak freewheel based drivetrain not designed for off-road use. A huge amount of people like mountain bikes but never take them properly off-road so you can't argue with the value if you want something half-decent that looks like a mountain bike.

    Yes totally, no one is going to use this as a proper mountain bike unless they are a bit kooky!?
    I'd buy it as a cheap local run around to my main bike & without fearing too much that it might get stolen.

    Can't find any sizing info. Normally I'd go for smaller frame than 18" but other Barracuda bikes seem to run small. Min height/ inside leg for this one pls? Ta.

    They come up very big with 27.5wheels

    Would this be okay for someone who's 6ft?
    Avatar
    Don't think so. My lad is around 5'3" (but growing) and it should just about do him. Reckon for 6ft a large frame would be needed.

    Gotta say the quality of the bike is really good. not too heavy and easy to pick up etc etc.

    Could make a good winter bike/ pub bike. It's cheap and has disc brakes. I really wished they'd just stuck a steel fork on it and called it a day. As with all Internet bikes put £50 aside to have your local bike mechanic dial it in. Indexing gears, tweaking disc breaks are a PITA and better left to the pros. Maybe even grease the wheel hubs and bottom bracket while your there. (You need the right tools).

    You can do all this yourself if mechanically competent. It's not super hard to service a bike if you are a more practical person. If you aren't you may be better off buying a bike from Halfords or Decathlon who will set it up for you.

    This is.... fine.

    Extreme value for money. Heat if your looking for a v cheap bike.
    Although don't expect it to live for long. I'd recommend upping your budget significantly if your going to avoid it being landfill in few years.

    Just bought a used one to replace my old dawes I stupidly got rid of. This is a yank bike but it is great quality and feels a real class act. Best £100 I paid in months, and he only asked for £90!! Came with rockshox too You may want to get a few decent upgrades but the bikes make it well worthwhile. Unlike the usual dross thats sold cheap. (edited)

    Link to Go Outdoors listing at £280 (claimed down from £380), £290 at Millets:

    gooutdoors.co.uk/161….ds

    Note they list as having Microshift not Shimano gears. Possibly the MooreLarge one is last year's model (not a problem)? (edited)

    Not bad for the price. Not for mtb trails but should be ok for roads, towpaths etc

    I can only guess it's probably had brake and gear adjustments, maybe at a push new cables and cleaned to within an inch of its life lol
    Avatar
    No way!

    If you ignore the cheap forks, tyres and brakes the frame has inner cable guide tubing and looks ok not the newest of the frame geometry, but half decent bike for some less serious enthusiastic rider that wants to give a bike a go on some very light trails and paths.

    Looks like the bikes they sell (or sold previously) at Costco.
    Avatar
    Very possibly: ML are a very big bike wholesaler and 'managed' the Aldi folding bike deal last year, then cleared returns through ebay (I got a good one but there were MANY complaints on here and ML Outlet not great to deal with.

    Thanks OP. Bought one for my son as he had his nicked a couple of weeks ago leaving him with a two mile walk to school, so he'll be grateful for a replacement.

    I thinking to buy to commute to work. Would this be any good? Is this heavy?
    Avatar
    Typically a hybrid would be better but largely depends on the nature of your commute. If mostly offroad, maybe.

    How many kilograms is the bike?

    I bought one of these from costco last summer and only used it once - been in garage ever since happy to sell at a similar price if anyone is interested

    Refurbed. The forks were bent after a small jump but now they are straightened

    They straightened on their own?

    Heat from me, for what it is and the price it is. It could be really good for the right person.
