in before the bike geeks...yes it's a BSO...

bargain

DOTD

Ordered thanks.
Don't ride bikes often but at this price can't go wrong.

Good price

Banned

Excellent

Great price Poor reviews

18kg is very heavy. You will be slow.

Or 'the helmets', as they're affectionately known

Hot,just make sure you get it checked out before riding it

I voted cold prematurely.

For the money the bike is great value, basic shimano gears, 18kg in weight, two wheels and a seat. Happy days

18kgs isn't that heavy considering most road bikes are around 10kg.

The only problem with these bikes is that people don't spend the time setting them up right and then complaining that the bike is rubbish, gears don't work right etc. I have just recently bought a Tescos special road bike @ £125, took me an hour to set up in the house and then a 10 mile ride to fine tune the seat position and height, gears, and handlebar angle. Great bike for the money also.

Spend time to sort this bike and most people won't be able to compain. AH CHECK THE WHEELS aren't buckled (common problem on cheap bikes.)

Looking at the reviews - if in reality you're likely to give up biking before you've ridden it more than 3 times, this is the bike for you!

If not, may be better options.

At £45, I'd almost be tempted as a spare-spare (I already have a halfrods BSO, which probably shares a lot of the same parts) - scary that it also comes with front suspension at this pricepoint

It will be heavy, dire parts that will break easily, good luck going off road on that, you would be better off walking to your destination or picking up a 2nd hand trek, carerra etc. on the cheap

Buy cheap buy twice with bikes like this

How can people knock a men's 26" 18 speed mtb for sub £45 QUID heat from me

Vincenzo Nibali and Froomey watch out I am coming for you on this in the Vuelta and TdF 2015 X)

Cheap death

Even if you just buy it for parts its worth it

First thing I'd check is the spokes - if any of the spoke nipples are loose to the touch, then the chances of the wheels staying true aren't great, so you'll be riding a bike with buckled wheels pretty quickly. Getting them sorted will cost half as much as the bike costs, depending on where you get it done. Supermarket and catalogue book bikes are notorious for this.

oos

its out of stock. good find though

I do love the pushbike snobs

Women's bike is still in-stock. Just ordered one for the wife. Thanks OP

Some cheap bikes are simply impossible to set up properly, regardless your skills and time dedicated. The components are too flimsy, badly designed, of very poor quality or just incompatible. The wheels may be fairly OK prior riding but that could change very soon. Truing the wheels is not exactly a simple thing if you don't have tools and experience .

The 'thing' is ridiculously cheap, though so definitely didn't deserve the cold vote.Just don't be silly and check it prior riding re safety, please as nobody had it in mind whilst manufacturing

Voted hot for shear cheapness but I suggest anyone making comments about bike snobs etc read the reviews - mixed picture.....

It is just in your mind.Average person at 70kg, plus lightweight £300 … It is just in your mind.Average person at 70kg, plus lightweight £300 bike at 10kg = 88kgOr with this bike = 96kg. Hardly going to slow you down!



If only your logic wasn't in fact utterly flawed.

Shame this is OOS. So many Christmases will be ruined. Eventually people will learn that there's no such thing as a cheap bike.

Out of stock ! Hot deal if you managed to get it.

Its a saving grace for anyone that was thinking about it that it is OOS

on the flat and downhill, weight will not be noticable at all!On the up … on the flat and downhill, weight will not be noticable at all!On the up hill, it is 10% difference maximumThe main factors are: The strength of your muscles and the friction caused by the moving parts.A good cyclist will work on getting their muscles stronger, and making sure all bearings are lubricated.Athelete style riders (and wannabees) will focus on the extra kg, and other very small factors. Cheaper bikes usually have more friction, hence the misconception that weight is the main factor.Try turning a bike upside down and spinning the pedal. You will see that better bikes have far less friction.



You'd have to be pretty strong to turn this one upside down! - still voted hot, not idea how they can make and sell something this cheap.

These are awful! But cheap so as it's Christmas go but one for someone and ruin there cycling career!

Worth a fiver of anyone's money!

No, you don't need to spend a fortune on a bike but around £100 for a basic (NO SUSPENSION!) one is the realistic start point, £150 and you can be reasonably confident.

Honestly, this will be rubbish. You won't be saving, you'll be wasting £44.50.
