Boys and girls 20" mountain bikes for £30 instore at Aldi.

The bike in the picture is the boys bike. Both have 6 gears and front suspension. Not sure of the quality, but they look decent for 30 notes.

Of course, not all Aldi's will have them, but it seems like a good deal if you can get one.

​I think you're right. Looking at that picture, it would seem the girl's bike doesn't have suspension. My bad.
Both OOS anyway
Still £59.99 in my store but have some heat anyway for good find
COLD - my kids are over 20 inches tall so this is no good for them!

You are aware that ANY 20" Bike for Kids are designed for Kids who are at least 24"/26"+ right? (& NOT for 20" Kids yeh?), or ..... lol. :-)
The why call it 20" then? Totally misleading info.
Excellent find heat added
Heat added, good find and surely if your child is to big then no need to vote cold!
Does anybody know if this is national as still £59 in yorkshire
If it's really made by Raleigh, it could be a genuine bargain, but beware of very cheap bicycles:

Cheap bikes are made of cheap components, and if you count the number of components on a bicycle, there are a lot of them; cheap derailluers will cause the chain to slip and will break at speed or under load, cheap brakes will snap off, cheap brake pads will fail to stop the bike in an emergency, a cheap saddle will quickly become uncomfortable to sit on, and cheap cog-sets will go rusty.

The biggest problem though is the quality of work in assembling the bike: This is the part most people don't think about at all, but a child's bicycle takes exactly the same amount of time and effort to assemble as an adult bike, and if it's not done correctly, the drivetrain will be misaligned, the crank won't be in straight, and even simple things like the wheel-bearings may not have been greased or may be missing altogether. It's not uncommon for the job to be so rushed that the forks have been put on backwards. I mean, when a bike is being sold for less than £50, how many minutes labour do you imagine the factory in China or Indonesia is going to put into building the bike?

That's not to say that all cheap bikes are bad; serious all-terrain bikes (and folding bikes) are a different beast, but the various normal types of bicycles are all built much the same way, and the frame & forks of a very cheap bike will have been put together in a jig the same as a very expensive bike; for most people the difference between a sub-£300 road bike and a £3000+ road bike is irrelevant; the frame and forks will be virtually the same and the super-expensive components will only matter to people who care about shaving a fraction of a second off their race times.

If you buy a very cheap bike for a child, you should have it reassembled by a competent bicycle mechanic to make it safe. NOT Halfords though! Some Halfords stores do have some good bike mechanics, but their rates per hour on bicycle repair is ridiculous for budget bikes; I've seen them telling people to spend more on repairing old bikes the bikes would cost brand new; they never advise the customer when a repair is uneconomical. Find a local independent mechanic.

Another thing: Cheap childens bikes tend to be absurdly HEAVY. If a cheap child's bicycle was scaled up to adult size, it would feel so heavy you'd think it had an engine in it. Try to appreciate how heavy a lump it is for a child. I guess it strengthens them up, but it's a bit Flintstones pushing a bike that weighs so much.

It says in the box it was made in Tunisia ....is that good or bad? (Genuine or not)

​its the size of the wheels.
Bouht the girls one from my local store today for £29.99
Agreed with earlier post don't buy cheap rubbish like this the bikes will weigh a ton and not be good for the little ones. A bike for an under 10 shouldn't weigh more than 10kg imo!
Whys everyone going on about cheap components and stuff... It's a kids bike and at £30 what more do u want.... It's not like they will go off road on it and they will soon grow out of it anyway. If it's decent enough to ride to the park or in the back yard then that's £30 well spent
