You just need to take a look at who posted then and who is no longer posting - will likely give you a view as to who bought it ....

Yep
I own one
Basically its a bike to do - diy bike - you have to check all parts one by one (sometimes use a filler like I had to smooth the rims inside as 1 tube blown straight away). I had to grease it, I changed tyres to gator hard shell, new stickers, new cranks chainreactioncycles.com/Mod…748 180mm, new bars as I get bended one.
brakes are crap but do the work (front one is 49mm but rear one should be 57mm and obviously there is 49mm so i had to drill down that brakes to let pads catch a rim)

It's not good bike to average west minded johnny with have 2 left hands to diy but If you know what you do? it's ok.

I will have to sell mine as I bought already another bike as I wanted only try to ride on single speed and it was ok (with 18T sprocket) but only because i need space and I cant keep 3 bikes in home.

It's a really inexpensive bike which could be your best if you know what you do but like it was said - it could be death trap if you typical ned which belief he can buy a bike without issues for £100 and he can ride on it straight away - no you cant - sorry guys - you have to be experienced in bike repairing.

I could fix the brakes for another £30 but I don't want invest money as I want to sell it for £100 in September (or throw it away to basement or whatever it's only £100).

I repeat it's not a bike for average english people which can only hate and swear on things by their potty mouth - you will have to seat with spanners and challenge yourself (this is why argos sell it under brand challenge lol) to put it on road (there is small stickers with information it is hand made - believe me it will be done by your hands).

average weight of it is 12-13kg (14kg is with a box).

I use it everyday so you might see me on Leeds roads.

I notice even the op of the last deal for this bike, was later in the thread recommending the Charge Plug fixie as a better deal.
Says it all really.

Pretty good review from someone who has hands on experience of this bike...... although I would imagine that most people who would buy a bike in this price range, wont be as competent in modifying the bike as you have done.
Weight aint bad either for a cheap bike with a steel frame.

£10 more gets you the B'Twin Rockrider from Decathlon... made by the French (who certainly know a thing or two about bikes I believe).

This would be useful for commuting if you lived somewhere flat like Norwich otherwise forget it and riding a bike with a fixed-wheel ain't for the novice or faint-hearted.

It can be flipped to a freewheel though....... but personally I wouldn't want to ride a bike without gears.

The B'Twin is undoubtedly excellent value, but unlikely to be of interest to those strange folk that believe a fixed gear bike is superior

Oh look , I wondered where all the old scaffolding tube goes to be recycled :-)
Well at this price you get what you pay for.

Please avoid this bike or any other from sports direct. I got one to ride to work. It broke 3 times in 2 week. Fortunately it enabled me to find the sport I love running as i knew I legs would not let me down. AVOID AVOID AVOID

Hey!

I am Xav, a french student living in Southampton I had this bike for a couple of months now and yes it needed some fixing and changing (tyres tubes and break systems) but to be honest, the crankset was fine, the chain tension needed tuning and the wheels needed to be majorly trued. but a part from that, it's a good fixie. I use both fixie and single speed, depends on when and where I ride.
The flip flop rear wheel is ok, I would like to change the hub, but a good flip flop hub is more expensive than the bike .... I wouldn't recommend this bike for a fixie if you don't know how to ride a fixie obviously, but it's a cheap, really good looking bike that just does the job on single speed! You just need to be a bit handy and patient.
Personally I went to decathlon, bought some Hutchingston Equinox 2 tyres, brain break pads and cables and it did the job.
Enjoy!
