Does it fit in the back of a Sandero?

duplicate - see Halfords black Friday thread.

Looks great value for a 29er. Don’t forget Quidco which will knock another £12.50 off.

Worth £200 tops imo. A bit heavy/cheap components and naff mechanical brakes. But still a bit better than your supermarket specials so not voting either way.

10% British Cycling membership discount on top too

Rubbish council bike

Could anyone point me in the direction of a £200 bike equal to this? Seems to be experts here.

Comments on this thread have put me right off. Was going to get this or the vengeance for >£250....😫

If you have a £250 budget you won't do better for the price. Of course you can always spend more. There are similar offerings at a similar price from Decathlon, but not much between them.

Thanks clemf, it's things like "naff mechanical breaks" that has the inexperniece bike purchaser like myself worried.

Mechanical brakes are fine for general use. This is not a hardcore downhill bike. If it were you'd need to look at hydraulic brakes. But those will add a lot to the cost. I find mechanical discs a lot easier maintenance wise. I would prefer them to rim brakes, especially in the wet. As far as weight goes, any of the bikes around this price level will be around 15kg. Which in my opinion is fine. It seems to me that there are a lot of people on this site who will rubbish any cheap bike deal - why I am not sure - Possibly to self-justify their expensive purchase?

Halford told me all out of stock in uk for bikes in this price range

Thanks for taking the time to post I really appreciate your feedback. We are not going to be doing any hardcore downhill cycling, I think I will go for the vengeance his and hers for my partner and I.

I was in yesretdya and they were happy to order the 22inch vengence freom headqurters.0

Mechanical disks will offer more reliable braking too, I'm heavy and commute in the rain sometimes, on those days I really feel the limits of v-brakes. When you squeeze both brakes hard on a downhill slope on a rainy day and find yourself slowing down as much as say applying the rear brakes on a dry day on the flat, that's a damned scary experience.
