Would love a Lefty

'30lb-plus weight'

Don't know much about bikes but it looks cool and it's half price so hot from me.

"Jekyll is the perfect name for this bike as it really has two distinct personalities. With the Fox Racing Shox made Dyad RT2 shock and its remote travel-adjust lever, the rider is able to toggle between a 150mm open ‘flow’ setting and a pedaling friendly 90mm ‘elevate’ mode. This also modifies the salient features of bottom bracket height – by 1cm – and head tube angle – by 1° – giving true meaning to Cannondale’s claim of two bikes in one. "

WHAAAAATT?!?!?!? You've managed to achieve something I always thought was impossible. Voted hot on a bike that costs over a grand!
Massive Congratulations, I guess the usual "99p bike from tescos" brigade are still recovering from Christmas

Being a cyclist I understand the true value of quality, If people vote cold on a cycle related item I post then so be it, but atleast peole who cycle will hopefully see what I post and appreciate it.

Fantastic bike, wish I could afford. heat for you.

What a waste of money X)

Expensive but huge discount so voted hot for that

Bike looks broken in the middle or is that a white transfer or paint

I've been looking at this too the only bad think in the review from MBR was the small price difference between this and the carbon frame one (being so small) but that was us only. Looks a steal.

Nice bike for the money.
Lefty forks cost an arm an a leg to service anyway.

Could really do with Fox 34 or 36 forks, the Fox 32 are a bit weedy and flex. Heat anyway though as otherwise it looks pretty good and a good price.

That is one nice bike, would get it if it wouldn't get stolen in 10 seconds in London. Will stick to my rusty old faithful.

Paul's cycles very good- I got a Giant Athem for under a grand last summer, and it arrived very well set up. This one is a great deal- hot from me.

I have never heard anyone with a bad word against them, good place to buy from and always very competitive.

Great deal thanks! Ordered 10.

Well here goes then.........
They aint that clever at setting bikes up, and have failed spectacularly to service my bikes properly on the past two times I've used them, and I had to take my bike elsewhere to get it sorted out (Streetlife cycles, Norwich are excellent).
Depending on who you speak to in the store, they can be a bunch of miserable gits. They are also very unhelpful when it comes to using the cycle to work scheme (most stores will let you spend over £1000 and pay the rest in cash, Pauls wont)
Having said this, they do some great deals, and stock some decent bikes, and I expect they will certainly set the bikes up better than someone at Halfords.
I wouldnt hesitate buying a bike from them if the price was right, I just wouldn't take it back there for a service.

oO £1,599.00 for a bike with no pedals

I've bought several bikes from them with no problem whatsoever.

from their site:

Bikes over £1000The maximum that we can quote for is usually £1000 ( … Bikes over £1000The maximum that we can quote for is usually £1000 (unless your company has a consumer credit license) and on a sale bike purchase, this will give you a credit of £900We are happy to accept 'top up' payments from you if the cycle you want to buy is over the £1000 limit but you should ensure that your employer is happy for you to do this as should you leave your current employment there could be a conflict of ownership

^ Yep, they say that but in practice they wouldn't when I went in store. I went elsewhere to buy a bike because of this..

Cool bike. Not sure about the external cables on the BB shell - best stick to roads and canal paths. But half price

You have to wonder how obscene their profit margins are when they can reduce the price by £1600 and still make a significant profit.

The manufacturers/distributors yes for sure. But it's not like PaulsCycles got these at full trade price. They are a clearance outlet in the UK for Cannondale, Giant and Scott. They get large quantities of previous year models at a much lower than usual trade price to move on old stock for the manufacturer/distributor. Often the price they are selling at is cheaper than a shop would have had to pay when the bike was new/current model year.

It's the same way that Chain Reaction can sell 2012 Kona bikes for 60% off retail yet they don't sell the current years bikes.

I want but can't afford... HOT!

Yeah, this is borne out by the number of bike manufacturers rivalling Apple & the FTSE 100 for immense wealth. Yes, there is a mark up but this is to cover the cost of having loads of bikes sat in stock in various sizes. As a percentage proper bike shops will be making less profit than Tesco do on one of their £99 jobs. Tesco pay around £12 delivered for one of their atrocities.

Does it come with a bell?

MrToast



Is this heavily discounted due to the lack of pedals ?

Quality bike at a good price. Savvy mtb's always buy last years models, they never much change that much ( colour!) if anything you seem to get less & less 4 your £££ each year.

Great find anyone looking should always check out Paul's cycles

thanks OP heated - is this as good as it gets for a downhill bike in this price bracket? any alternatives for slightly more or less?

This isn't a downhill bike, it's more 'all mountain/enduro'. If you want something for downhill without a triple crown fork I'd go with one of the Kona Entourage from chain reaction:

Use code UK50 to get an extra £50 off before new year. Both are absolute bargains IMO.
