Anyone had experience or reviews. Rate my previous Marin (2015 Nail trail) and this looks like a lot of bike for the money

Looks decent for £600.00. Voted hot.
That's a lot of bike for the money, hot from me
Any views on this VS Halfords Voodoo Bizango at £650.

Like the fact these both have single chainring
Edited by: "blueflash" 31st Oct
Yep - great looking bike and spec. Heat from me
Considering this, is this good value compared to similar priced bikes? Bizango, line 10...other options?
Has anyone managed to see the weight of this bike?
Looks a good deal. Has tubeless compatible wheels too.

According to a US site it’s 32lbs, roughly 14.5 kg
Compared to Voodoo and Calibre this si going to be heavier. The frame is steel and the wheels are heavy with very wide tyres.
Also the geometry on this bike makes it more suited to recreational riding and long distance off road adventures rather than hurtling down a mountain at speed. It will be fine for mild trail riding. And with a bit of skill can be taken down some red graded trails.
Spec for the money is very good. Even better if you want a steel frame, which tends to inflate the price normally.
Good price for the specs, but no way i would pay original £1199.99...
I'd stuck with the Voodoo
Good for an little e bike conversion though ain't it.. Steel frame will be more rigid.. tempting. been looking at budget hardtails recently to do a conversion on... Either this or a sub 1000 second hand full sus but bit worried about how well they've been looked after.. But of a minefield

Steel frame will flex more, not be more rigid mate, thats the advantage of a butted chromoly frame the flex or spring it gives, but you are right in one way the steel frame will take more abuse and be stronger for the extra weight of battery and conversion, I've recently bought a steel framed bike a genesis tarn 20 at half price and the reason I went for steel is its springy yet strong and as I'm over 100kg I want a frame I can trust.

Yeah my bad i just heard they were better for ebike conversions but cheers.and nice deal. Im preferably looking for something with better forks with adjustable rather than just lockout as i do stuff thts a bit cross country and dont need al the suspension but dont want it locked up.. so ill have to see about some deals like you found

Then I've just gotta decide between mid drive and hub drive lol

I'm not clued up on all that really it's not something I've considered yet but may be a future project as my knees not brilliant, but I know the steel bike I have would survive a nuclear blast, I remember when steel frames were 2kg on a medium them days have gone mines near 3kg with all the extra strength standards it will last forever I've no doubt about that.

Steel frames can be weaker it depends on the frame design, the benefit is steel frames fail slowly and give ample warning of failure where as alumnium frame or forks can fail without warning and you end up under a HGV etc. It really depends on the frame design though you can make strong or weak frames out of any material. Some cheap high tensile steel mountain bike frames used for low end bikes are super strong and super heavy with it with little consideration for weight. Those have straight gauge tubes though. When you start mentioning butted chromoly tubes you know the tubes of the main triangle have been weakened to save weight and used correctly that shouldn't be an issue but the frames are more vulnerable to accidental damage. The old high end light weight steel road bikes never lasted as long as the heavy straight gauge high tensile steel framed road bikes that were entry level. Many of those high end light weight steel frames would crack close to the bottom bracket where the butted tube started to thin either on the downtube or seat tube. Also some of the top tubes were so thin you'd only have to lean them against something without care and they would have a ding in them.

The frame I have the genesis tarn 2018 model has a lifetime guarantee against failing and weighs about 2.8kg,its double butted 4130 cromo, not many if any alloy or carbon frames have a guarantee over three years, I trust cromo steel far more than any alloy or carbon frame, but I think they are over built now compared to the past my 1997 kona kilauea weighed 2kg built from columbus cyber tubing dented after a crash but it was thin walled, the tarn frame I have now feels far more solid, bombproof.
Which frame corresponds to 60cm? The XL or the XXL?

Many brands offer a lifetime guarantee on CF and aluminium frames but like steel doesn't include fair wear and tear so a old fatigued frame would not be replaced typically but a frame that failed at the welds would. The frame you have may well be bomb-proof especially if its a weighty frame that shows it's engineering is likely more towards strength than lightness.

It's like this test which many people refer to that shows steel as the weakest frame material.


sheldonbrown.com/rin…htm


It's a ridiculous test because the steel frames are ultra-light with very thin tubes in order to compete with CF and aluminium bikes but its the wrong material for a lightweight frame so is the weakest and many use this to show steel as weaker which is utterly stupid but you can't deny that they are testing steel frames that are weaker than other frame materials. The fatigue tests are also too high so do not represent normal use so that is another issue.

As ever you can use the internet to find sources that agree with your viewpoint but II would definitely agree with you about steel being better overall for long life and on average better strength and durability but or me the main benefit is the early warning signs of failure that can genuinely save lives.
