It's a nice belief to have, but sadly a mistaken one.

AFAIK the Tandem Group (which currently owns the British Eagle brand name) ceased assembly of bikes at Brigg over 12 months ago, and they had only been assembling "high end" bikes there for a number of years.

This like many current bikes is produced cheaply in China/Taiwan/Vietnaam.

I won't comment on the bike itself, but with a steel frame and dual suspension it's not going to be light! Personally I won't be buying it!

YMMV - Rufus.

I sadly have to agree, at this price it's not going to be made in the U.K. & I also have know experience of this bike.:cry: The old saying "You get what you pay for" comes to mind!

I once bought a falcon bike with a steel frame for my wife from Argos.....BIG mistake, my wife could hardly lift it!!

Had to return it but kept the Argos promotional £5.00 voucher!

Anyway, I bought a Sacracen DIVA with an alloy frame for her instead and although it was £70 dearer, it was money well spent.

Instead of returning the bike, should of returned the wife for a stronger one :-D :-D

Stay well clear of duel suspension bikes made with STEEL!!!! They are far too heavy and a waste of time. I got one due to price then took it back a week later in anger at it.

For that money you would be far wiser getting a fixed tail bike meaning you still get suspension up front if you desire.

Another word of warning though, Cheap bikes with Disc breaks are also a little tacky. The poor quality means you'd be better sticking with V breaks...

Happy shopping.

Voted hot and rep given :thumbsup:
I'm looking for one of these for the wife and me for occasional use thus not bothered about the weight.
Though not dual suspension, Tesco Direct and woolworths have bikes in a similar price range, but i'm going instore to a co-op to checkout the dual suspension they have for only £45.99. If that's no good will come back to consider this deal.
Thanks for posting

You're not supposed to carry a bike it is supposed to carry you.:thinking:

Depends on the type of riding you do. If your off road, then some terrains you can't ride over/up and it's quicker to pick the bike up. Even on-road, you still have your own body weight + bike weight to pedal, not all roads are flat or downhill.

A recent survey carried out in devon concluded that 60% of the hills go up.

See they also have the mens bike, I'm after something cheap but with all the negative comments I can't see me going for it amazon.co.uk/Bri…436

Good to see the rims are lightweight tho.:)

If your after a cheap bike, then it's fine for the price. All other cheap bikes are still going to be steel and heavy. You do get what you pay for.

I've always read in mountain biking mags, that for a decent serious bike, you need to be looking at a starting price of £500+

[SIZE=2]That's a fugly bike and I bet it's so heavy it's got it's own gravitational field.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]You'd be better of getting a bike with no suspension if you haven't got much money to spend.[/SIZE]

People who buy these bikes don't go 'off road' they ride them to work and round parks. If you buy a bike to keep fit then why buy a light one, heavy is better. The additional weight of a steel bike over an aluminium one is insignificant as a percentage when you take into account 11 stone of rider.
