Calibre Point.50 Hardtail Mountain Bike £395 @ GoOutdoors

15
Found 25th Jun 2015
This bike was well reviewed at bike radar at £600 and now it is £395. This bike has an unbeatable spec for the money. The front fork is excellent (rockshox xc32) as are the SRAM gears.
It is a little on the heavy side but not more so than most bikes under 1k.

It has 26" wheels which are going out of fashion now but there is still nothing wrong with them and don't let anyone tell you any different!

4% quidco available too

Interesting hardtail.


I bought my wife the two.two which is similar but lower spec and that is excellent. I cant see how they manage to put an xc32 on a £400 quid bike.

I got this for £350 a while back when they had a 10% promotion as well the bike is superb and quite light well worth £400.

Are you sure it wasn't the two two, its the lower spec one of these. I have been watching this for ages and never seen the point.50 go this low before.

Jeezo, I ordered this for £475 2 nights ago when it was on a previous sale.

Hope they'll do a price adjustment for me, I just emailed them.
If not I'll be ordering another one and returning the original.

It was a good deal at £475, it's outstanding at £395

You are right Jamesdew my mistake but I don't think you can go wrong with either bike in this price bracket, Although the seat is rock hard.

Go Outdoors adjusted my price to the sale price, refunding me £81.
Very satisfied customer, bike arrived yesterday and seems great.

One thing to note is that it has Smart Sam tyres, not the WTB's as advertised

Seat is always rock hard as standard on bikes like this, allows them to compete on weight. It's very easy to replace though.

at this rate the deal will be over by the time it gets hot.

Limited stock left, picked mine up today. Was told by staff that they are being sold off cheap as they are changing the tyre size.

Interesting, so they will be making a 650b model next then I guess.

I got one of the last 8 of these discontinued bikes In the country and drove miles down to Canterbury to collect it.. I got it for just under £400.. its astonishing.. my friends are buying bikes over £700 and it out-specs them.. It would out-perform them if I wasn't riding it.. last year's model..discontinued..who cares..grid is a definite loss leader for Go Outdoors to promote the Calibre brand..If you get one and you get one cheap.. laugh at those spending Almost twice and getting less and simply enjoy!!!!
