I wouldnt trust 'take the roughest ground' comment..

In my experience, there's virtually no point in looking at a full suspension mountain bike for anything less than £500...

Full suspension adds cost and weight for very little benefit at this price point - a better frame and other components would be money better spent..

i cant be bothered looking to see if this bike is cheaper anywhere else, so voting neutral.

Unfortunately he's right, that's why you buy hardtail bikes for kids

Yes but its a bike for a 9 - 13 year old for £49.99. Not every parent has got £500 to spend on a bike for there kids to ride around the streets on. For parents on a budget its a great price and will do the same job as a £500 one. There maybe some difference if they are using it for mountain biking.

Lol, this is a 50 quid bike for a child though. Your comment may be relevant for an adult that's well into mountain biking, but it is irrelevant to this deal.

A kids bike doesn't need to cost £500. My kids cost £120 and £150 respectively and they weren't the cheapest I found. The point is that full-suspension bikes do cost £500 upwards, so this isn't a bike - it's just something designed to look a bit like one. The suspension is not just pointless it's actively harmful.

If all you want is a toy for the kids to play in the street then it ha the advantage that it won't get stolen ('cos it's not worth taking) but if you want to cycle anywhere with your kids why handicap them with a heavy steel-framed bike with poor components that won't last and suspension whose only purpose is to make it harder to ride?
