Thanks, i'll keep an eye on it. Will make it a couple quid cheaper
is this any good? planning to buy a cheap and cheerful bike for a ride in the park. can someone suggest any alternatives? are those with brake pads better? thanks
If you are just looking for a ride in the park do NOT get one with "full suspension" (which will be utter crap at this price anyway). You will waste alot of energy working against it and it'll also be unnecessary weight added. Expect to spend more than £100 though, or just get a second hand one from someone you trust if you're not too fussed about that.
Don't waste your money. I bought one of these in 2010...for £59.00. It was advertised on the TV. I thought at the time...that's not far off what I'd pay on the car boot......but I would have got a much better bike on the car boot for the price. It's very heavy and the components are inferior. It turned into a rust bucket at the first sign of rain.

P.S. This is no reflection on Sports Direct...as I have found their service to be first class. But....you get what you pay for....and that couldn't be truer with this offering.(_;)

Put OH right off with that review lol
Cheap - but won't be good.

If you want a cheap bike and don't want second hand then at least go for a basic bike (no suspension, etc.). There's no way this spec can be achieved with half decent components at that price. These things are designed to attract the kids who want all the 'bling' - not for real riding, even a casual ride in the park.

For a cheap and cheerful bike that is not a heap of **** (like this one), spend an extra £30 and buy the Decathlon Rockrider 5.0 for £99.

There's no need to buy these low quality full suspension mountain bikes that are pretty heavy and often not properly set up when you can buy yourself a basic quality mountain bike like the Rockrider, that will be properly set up from a reputable shop.

Rockrider 5.0 is a very good bike and excellent value for money. Thoroughly recommended.
can anyone please recommend a good ladies bike? mac_d - ? Ideally Id like one of those vintage ones with basket :o) but my bf says I will not be able to ride it off road in forest etc so perhaps not best / most flexible choice s I guess Im looking at perhaps a mountain bike?
If you are just looking for a fairly cheap bike to use for leisure rides in the park, on paths & trails through the woods etc (but not proper downhill mountain bike trails!), then the Rockrider would probably be just fine. Doesn't cost too much, and is about the best quality you'll get for that kind of price. There is a ladies version of it available too: Rockrider 5.0 Women.
I had this and it is broken from day 1 until now
Wish I have bought it from sportsdirect where I can get replacement...

I can see there are different size for the Rockrider 5.0... What's that mean by size?
Size it tells you under product information:

Sizes: S (155-165cm) and L (175-185cm) so small would suit someone from approximately 5ft to 5ft 4" and large from 5ft 7" to 6ft.

If you'd bought this bike from Decathlon and had a problem with it, they are a good reputable shop and would have been able to fix it for you. If you seriously would rather have bought a bike from Sports Direct.... well then, I'd say that's your choice, good luck with it (_;)
