This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

A simple, practical bike for someone who wants to get from A to B without suspension vampire-ing away their pedalling energy. Once these tyres reach the end of their life, replace them with some 32C puncture resistant ones for lower rolling resistance and easier pedalling.

Shimano gears, mudguards, rear carrier rack, chain guard to keep your trousers from getting greasy. Bargain.

Thanks to maruthu for the voucher code.

The bottom bracket will probably fail or chainset'll probably wear out before the tyres need replaced!
Buying a set of guards and a rack would account for about 20% of the cost!

Is this a good beginners bike. Or is this a BSO..

I have no idea about bikes
Yes, quite to very decent for the price spec.
Ezfire, rack full mudguards and with it being a rear 7speed not 6, likely a standard frame.

It looks streets ahead of the usual Tesco bike in this price range.
No stock in Greater Manchester or most of Yorkshire. Cold.
What is the weight?

Or Cambridgeshire or Essex.

Brrrrrr!

What is the weight?


15.5kg ! You could shave some weight of this with thinner tyres as it has trekking tyres on , and you could loose the pannier rack at the back .looks a really descent bike for inner city /town cycling .

Says 15.5kg on the product page, which seems fair given the huge tyres, rack and guards.

I think my steel disk bike similarly built up in a similar way, with good components is a similar weight after all that.
No stock Anywhere in London or Manchester, Liverpool etc. Can anyone find any stock anywhere?

In a lot of cases they also read the weight off the box, that includes a few kg of packing materials.

Often rains in Manchester too
Good price and heat. But you wouldn't want to go up any hills on this thing. 15.5kgs is a seriously heavy bike. Perfect for town riding though

Great - I have been looking for a good bike that only goes downhill
I put in a variety of towns between John O'groats and lands end just purely out of curiosity , but appears non in stock in-between these areas !
19" or 21" for 6'1?

For a road bike yes, but not for a loaded commuter bike.

You might get to the next set of traffic lights a bit slower, and pull away a bit slower, but 15.5kgs, potentially the packed weight isn't unreasonable. You push the pedals and it goes forward. When there is a hill, you change gears and go a bit slower. When someone passes you in a replica jersey, you wave them on their way.

I think it's even about 3kg less than the Raleigh Grifter I had as a kid.


That all said, it is a cheap bike - but for the money it looks like a hot deal and more than a bso, but read reviews and report back if you get one.

22" for 6'4", so probably 21" for you.

But what's in like for ascent?
Showing stock in Kidderminster - hope that helps someone.

Steel seatpost in an alloy frame - very bad idea! Keep it well lubricated or, better still, fit an alloy seatpost.
Just ordered but got an email within 15 minutes cancelling it.

Just got a cancellation as well, says there stock system isn't accurate and actually none available
Looks a very good deal for riding short distances, not the end of the world if it gets nicked.
I got the last 21inch frame from chesterfield. Im 5'11" and it fits me just fine. Cheeep and cheerful and im really happy with the way it looks. The mudguards are made of liqourice but gears shift nicely, everything does up tightly, slight issue with a cross threaded pedal and a broken mudguard but easy to fix. It's the bees knees and i love it. Thanks jeeeeeez.
