Great price.

Forgot to add, TopCashBack are offering 3.15%

Thats an extra £5.51 off!

How do these compare to the Riverside 3 bikes from Decathlon - much between them?

+1 Pay a bit more & get a real bike. Makes this a real deal.

Very true and it'll be half the weight as well.I sold an old 2000 giant to a workmate who never used it.Sat outside at my work for years now but it still is rideable with some oil and tyres blown up.

1 available in medium.

Edit: 1 available for each size, I imagine XL is too tall for most.

Not sure Steve? I'm in a similar predicament at 6'3''
I'm also tempted to just go with XL as I'll only be using it mainly on the flat (trails and roads)
Suppose we should really go and try a few frames out...

I've gone with the XL - it if doesn't feel right, I'll request an exchange or refund - going by their chart so I don't see it being a problem

Yeah just be aware though, you'd have to pay for the return shipping cost
Unless obviously your picking it up.

I'm sure it'll be fine - have checked sizing on another site and it suggests XL - no worries

Ordered - thanks OP

Bought the same bike last week from tredz. For £184 a bit more but have to say its a great bike. It was a post on here as well.

Quidco just tracked at £5.25

hi, what's this like compared to the cube aim 26 2013 model for £279? is the cube worth another £100? thanks

To be honest, I'm not clued up on bikes myself.

I've gone for this bike as I know its a good brand, great price n has brilliant reviews.

I'm going to be fitting commuter tyres n using this bike on the roads 99% of the time. Just didn't want to dismiss ever using it on trials etc.

Regarding the sizing, I'm approx' 6'2" with inside leg of 34" n I've gone for the Large frame.

Thought this was for giant revels.

No I cant get the idea out of my head of a bag full of chocolate revels but giant ones.

Mine from Decathlon went rusty after one ride! They told me thats what would happen if it was kept outside. It wasn't outside. The brakes also melted. They gave me a no hastle refund though. Still looking for the right one now.

Wow, thought this was good when I posted it @ £185, anyone wondering about size, Giant frames do seem to be pretty large, I'm 6'2" 34" leg & bought the Large which is spot on, amazing bike for the money, ok budget but useable components and great frame unbeatable at the price. HEATED!!!!

Bought this one over the decathlon hybrid which I could have got delivered to the store for £89.99 but to be honest, I think this bike is worth it just to avoid grip shift.

TCB tracked, so for less than £170 uber bargain.

i cant imagine this bike will be any good for any type of singletracks..
would probably be ok as a light commuter bike...
the components are real heavy and probably wont last long before they break.
just because it says "giant" doesn't make it any good
i would save up and get something a bit better IMHO....

Guy by me that's been running a bike shop for 20 years now and sell and services nearly all makes of bikes told me to steer clear of Cube when I said I was thinking of selling my Carrera to buy one. Actually told me Carrera was better!

Says the components on the Cubes are fine but that their frames are poorly made Chinese tat

thanks

I would disagree, obviously spending more money would get you a better component specced bike, however compare this to what people were using on singletracks some 25 years ago and the advancements in cheap shimano components the old addage of the £300 starter bike rings true with this spec. This would be fine as a starter bike with an average frame to work to as and when a starter wants to replace components.

FYI If you're about 5' 8" the Medium frame is just about right.

Thinking of this for my teenage daughter, I assume its home assembly will it be an easy assemble?

It comes 99% already built, just add the pedals and straighten the handlebars.

Allen keys and a pedal wrench (sometimes included) should be all you need. Usually just need to fit front wheel, pedals and straighten handlebars.

I just spent 200 on a bike for my 5 year old so this is a lot of bike for the money.would be good for a towpath commute or similar.

Really depends on what you're looking for, about 90% of my cycling is on the road for which I've got a single speed Kona Band Wagon and a Boardman Carbon.
For me this is ideal for the odd weekend along the Thames tow paths for which it is more than capable, wouldn't feel it's justified or necessary to spend a lot more, I've owned many Giants in the past and this really is a bargain.

only large left.

Wow, a HUKD thread about bikes that isn't full of people saying anything less than 3K is a waste of time....

Banned

I can get a bike from TESCO for... Oh, wait...

I've ordered, DD is around 5' 8"- 5'9" with inside leg around 31-32 so fingers crossed the large isn't much too big. Think hubby is hoping it will be too big so he can have it

Frames are then sent back to Germany for quality checks. Can't see how he can diss Cube frames..

Anyway, £175 for a starter bike is ace value. Heat added.
