Wish I could find some reviews for this!
£5 off , decent shape to the bike rarely get the straight top tube running into the rear triangle on a bike in this price range , decent drivetrain for the money too compared to many rival bikes

Would this bike be alright for general use or is it more an off roader? I would use for a bit of off road stuff, little bit on road but mainly along the canal etc for exercise.
Also looking at the size guide, I'm around 5'9" says that I could go with either medium or large frame. is there any advantage or disadvantage to each frame size? Apologies for the "noob" questions but I'm a total "noob". Cheers

This would be a perfectly respectable all rounder. Hardtails usually work fine for all use cases, especially if you're willing to swap tyres based on your use. I'd also look at gravel/adventure bikes if something a bit sportier takes your fancy (beefed up road bikes designed to be ridden on rough ground.)

The only downsides for this bike are you might find the gearing limited if you are a fast cyclist, and the handlebars too wide if you do long cycles. The 2x10 gearing is perfect for off road use, but you might find it doesn't have the top end to comfortably cruise at 20mph.

Definitely go for a medium. Better for your size and far better control when you eventually do go off road
Quidco only showing at 3.2% for me?

Sorry you need to be a premium Quidco member quidco.com/pre…f2f

I think topcashback is 6.4% without needing to be a plus member

K cool, upgraded to premium, will probably pay for itself with this purchase. Thanks

I’ve been paid out on Quidco on at least 10 orders in the last 6 months using codes like these. Small orders so not the risk of losing the bigger cashback on a bike though
Hi I’m after just a regular bike to cycle with my young kids but prefer a light frame. Any recommendations for a budget of circa £250-300.

Yeah for sure, same. Just sometimes not worth the risk
Anyone know how the frame sizing goes? Most of the guides online are regarding 26" wheel size surely the bigger the wheels 27.5" & 29" wheels affect the frame size you should go for?

thanks for replying...........so is that for a 29" wheel bike? is there a size guide for bikes that have a 27.5" wheel size? Im 5"10 and bought a Genesis Core 2015 19" (with 27.5" wheels) frame bike and always thought it was too big

When you say off-road do you actually mean proper off-road where you are doing jumps and drops and going up or down steep rough sections because if you just mean easy off-road, gravel paths, slight rough ground you would be better off with a hybrid bike without suspension. Suspension adds a lot of weight and requires more frequent maintenance and when they fail are expensive to replace. A hybrid bike provides an efficient road experience but more strength compared to road bikes. You get the more road optimised hybrid bikes which are typically 700c wheel size but you also get the actual mountain bike type which are basically mountain bikes with rigid forks like the Carrera Subway. I personally wouldn't choose this bike if I was mainly using it on the road and canal paths etc. It would just annoy me constantly having the weight of the forks that I wasn't using and if I was using it for commuting and in rain having to keep servicing the forks all the time. To be honest I'd probably quickly get myself some rigid forks to replace the suspension forks and only fit the suspension forks when I was actually taking the bike properly off-road.

Thanks for that info! Much appreciated. I have ordered now and will see how I get on with the suspension and look at replacing if it feels heavy. I'll need to research susoension forks now!

If you can hack the colour and aren’t too tall, yes

I like the colour. Thankfully I'm too tall. If that bike we're in my size and was a 29er I'd have wished I'd gone for it. Doesn't come with pedals though? Is that normal? I actually got Tredz to send me some free upgraded pedals with my order
