The value is second to none and google some reviews, they're very highly regarded and a total bargain

More than most of us will ever realistically ever need or fully utilise

Good for the money but no hydraulic brakes is a shame.

£32 for a set of hydraulic disc brakes, not a major cost.

Cold, can get a car for not much more. Then you can use the road, without being an inconvenience for people actually pay road tax.

Return of the fictional Road tax....and back in the real world the cheap car is belching poison and killing young and old alike.

Or you could lease a car and drive the mountain bike to the mountains and really experience life.Its a great deal but I prefer no suspension.

Ah, dammit. I bought a Diamondback Sync yesterday for £261. Should have waited and got this really

So I take it you've never had a bike in your life time and never ridden it on a road??? I drive a car and pay road tax, also ride a MTB & road bike!!

The company has given precious little detail in the specs. No mention of weight, and we don't know who made the brakes or tyres.

Brakes are likely tektro, they seem to be the main supplier of the mechanical brakes, looks similiar on pictures too ,
Tyres id guess a unbranded WTB tyre
