anyone used the ridge mens mountain bike? would they recommend it?


Good enough for most people. No cheap suspension and vbrakes. If it gets someone fit, out of their car or off their sofa, then it's always a benefit.

what i seem to notice with this site is that if a bike is under £500 they won't like it

Probably some good deals within, but that website/app is awful to use. Does mater how much you feed back to Halfords it's always falls on deaf ears. Even sports direct has a more intuitive interface.

Sometimes there's a reason. Bigger gears are expensive but let you go up steeper hills. Lighter bikes are expensive but let you go faster on the flats. Suspension is expensive but lets you maintain control over extremely bumpy terrain. Disc brakes are expensive but give you the same braking come rain or sun.

As for this bike, it seems like it'll suit the average needs (going up to 15mph around town). I have concerns over its load carrying ability for heavier riders or someone looking to carry shopping home.

Agree. The bike in question is £81 so what would you expect for £81 !? It's a very basic bike and it's heavy. So it won't be that fun to ride because of the heavy weight and it's very basic gears/breaks won't give the rider much confidence. But again it's only £81. I good pair of mountain bike tyre's cost me £50-60 .
The hammocks are great for £7.

Cheers chinny, hot
Anyone had any experience with their bike racks? Any good? Probably going for a rear-mounted one for a single bike - maybe 2.
Anything for car Ac service / ReGas plz ??
I hope the hukd screwdriver set is included in the offer.

I have. Just gave my rear mounted 3 bike one away. It was alright but didn't feel easy to make properly secure - hooks would come unhooked from the car after a bit. Nothing went wrong but I lost faith in it - just didn't feel like you could secure it really firmly to the car. Pain to get 3 bikes on as well. 2 was fine.

Normally these cheap steel frame bikes are strong for the frames and also forks if the forks are rigid. There is normally nothing clever about the frame, it's unbutted tubes and steel is easy to weld they are made with little regard for weight and overly strong. I think the factories in the far east can legally self-declare their compliance where as for aluminium frames much more extensive testing is required and many low end bicycle manufacturer's weld their own steel frames but buy in fully certified aluminium frames from a big manufacturer like fuji-ta.

When I was getting back into cycling many years ago after doing some research the strongest safest frame to use I found out was a low end fully rigid steel mountain bike. I rode it at 26 stone and had no issues at all with its strength. I didn't stay long at 26 stone though as I was cycling. The other big factor is steel frames give some indication of failure before they fail rather than fall apart while you are in traffic or going down a hilll at high speed. So they are stronger anyway but are likely to inform you of their imminent failure before hand. The last big factor is fatigue. Aluminium frames always get weaker with time as they have no endurance limit. From the factory they might have strength to take 200kg but 7 years of life it could be down to 100kg and they have factored that strength decline into their stated load limits. A heavy rider above the maximum load will not break an aluminium frame immediately but creating a higher level of fatigue cutting down on the lifespan of that frame considerably, perhaps only 1 or 2 years before the frame is close to failure. Steel is much more resistant to this fatigue issue. A heavy rider will still shorten the lifespan of the frame but steel's greater resistance to fatigue anyway (it does have an endurance limit) will mean a longer period before failure.

Also some of the best cheap steel bikes are using a high carbon steel frame. This is a slightly improved steel over the older high tensile steel. A sort of half-way house between the older high tensile steel and chromoly steel. It's difficult to know which bikes have high carbon steel frames. In the old days you could have 1010-1018 SAE steel in cheap steel frames and it can be as high as 1040 possibly 1050 although a range of 1028-1040 seems more realistic now. Just making the point there is some small improvement in cheap steel frames over recent years to bridge the gap a bit with chromoly steel. It's still inferior steel to premium chromoly steel bikes that date back as far as the 1950s I think but better than it was a few years ago.

So there was no gain in buying anything any earlier, on the previous deal days? Bit odd.

Got hammocks last year for £5, built wooden frame, worth the money.
Any ideas if I'll be able to ge the 10% off having bought something the day prior to this starting?

It's easy returns so I may return the item on the spot and reorder it in front of them lol
Thanks! I had my eye on a Tacx Neo smart trainer and took the plunge today. No where can it be found for around £850

More expensive at Amazon if you don't have Prime membership and can get a further discount at Halfords through British Cycling or work scheme like.

Still haven’t put it up. Bought it at least a year ago.

You mean the people who spend £647.25 on a full set of lycra, GPS cycling computers, helmets, special cycling shoes, t-shirts and sunglasses to cycle a mile round trip to work?
Went for the cool bag for food shopping. Should hopefully stop items melting or getting warm. Seems a good deal for £6.75.

Agree, they're heavy to ride, but a non-cyclist reading it's a basic bike and heavy will probably be thinking 'uh, why would I have to carry this bike?'
I still have my 80's Raleigh Rapide and compared to some of the lightweight stuff today, it's 'heavy' in comparison. Most of the snide remarks come from the lycra snob mob. The last 3 weeks because of a foot injury I haven't been able to drive, let alone cycle. I went by bus - 3 quid for a measly 2.8 miles, so 6 quid a day.
Think about it. In less than a fortnight my fares would have paid for this 'cheapie' bike!
Another advantage of cheapie bike, say it was nicked, damaged etc. What have you lost? A fortnight's short journey bus fares.

And because it's 'heavy' probably get you fitter. There are more than plenty of the obese out there that could do with getting on a bike, 'heavy' or not. But snide remarks about this cheapie bike will highly likely put them off from ever trying.

So, for me, it's gotta be a hot deal. Cheaper, as said, that a fortnight's bus fares for me.

When I posted that link Amazon had it for £797.66 for Prime members.
Got a basic car head unit for £36, can't complain about that. Seems to be £70ish everywhere else.

Couple in stock around the Midlands still halfords.com/tec…yer

A heavy bike like this won't get a person fitter . All it will do is put them off riding! You will have to put a lot more into peddling and because of this you will be knackered so much quicker, if it was a lighter bike it would not need as much force to pedal and you would have a more enjoyable ride and even do a few extra miles ..
