Dont want to be rude but this is a pile of rubbish and should not be bought if you actually want to use it to get fit/commute/take up the sport. This will be fine for riding to the local shops a few times a month but nothing more.

Its crazy heavy as it has a steel frame, very bad gears and ridiculously bad suspension (I am not sure you can call it that).

Seriously this bike will put you off the sport for the rest of your life. Its like taking up running and buying flip flops. It will cause frustration due to bad components and bad materials to keep the price down.

Are you speaking from personal experience of this bike? Because my "bike shaped object" that was roundly dismissed as virtually unusable by the "experts" on here when it got posted has been more than adequate for my 12 mile round trip commute for the last 3 years - and any other occasion I've used it.

Could probably make 2 unicycles out of it, so hot from me

would love to take it round dalby forest. See whats left after 3 hours X)

What bike did you get?

At this price point I'd advice against buying a full suspension bike, especially if it has a steel frame. Keep it simple, there's a lot more to go wrong on a full suss bike.

No I have no experiance with this bike but I know its going to be of bad quality and the rear suspension is just making the bike 100% more useless. At this price just buy a rigid or if you have to a front suspension bike. Adding rear suspension to a bike this cheap adds so much weight and instead of making the bumps smoother it hinders your cycling power due to the suspension absorbing a large amount of energy. Ever noticed that cheap dual suspension bikes use a very similar frame type and more expensive dual suspension bikes use a completely different frame type? Its just a terrible design of frame.

I am all for a cheap bike but don't buy full suspension thinking its better. Go buy an aluminium framed bike with no suspension and you will be 100% happier.

Had this bike around 6 months now, use it daily for a 12 mile round trip commute. Also use at weekends on and off road. Never had any problems with it. This bike has also made me want to take up cycling as a sport.

12 mile round trip commute on crap bike...
You could put 2 days pay towards at least an aluminum frame and...well...you're just making life difficult for yourself out of pig stubborness.

That's 2 days assuming worst case scenario of minimum wage etc.

Please forward exact address.

So just for clarity, this is in-store only?

So you are saying you have had this bike and cycled at minimum 1440 miles in the last 6 months and everything is still working perfectly? Wow very lucky and I would suggest if you are cycling those distances spend a little cash on yourself and get a half decent bike to make your commute massively more enjoyable as this bike is a hindrance...

Can someone please post a link

been in to have a look a these for my wife, were too big for her and only come in the one size but they seemed like a decent bike for the price, wouldn't get something like this for myself but if you want something for just occasional use got to be worth giving a go. they have a store in stanley as well, don't know if the stock is the same tho, not sure about any other stores.

would rather have chlamydia than this

Agreed. Thesee bikes are piles of poo. They do have some vakue but inly as scrap metal. A rigid bike would be 1000s of tkmes better and would cost the same to produce, they make them dual suspension to con people into thinking they're getting a good deal,. To give you an idea, dual suspension bikes start from about 800 pounds and even then they're only good for a small minority of people who need rear suspension.

Its crazy heavy as it has a steel frame.



OK this particular BSO with `dual sus' that will be certain to seize up shortly after purchase, should probably be avoided. But I have steel bikes and they are fine for weight. Steel doesn't mean heavy.

Steel frames are fine but not on a bad dual suspension bike. Its just not useful. I have a steel framed rigid bike and love it!

Never heard of them, are they dual suspension?

Hide your wallet and run...........this will put you off cycling forever.

Agree with this too ^

I've had my fair share of bikes since I was a kid and now I'm older and bought my own bikes I would recommend people to stay away from cheap bikes like this. There cheap for a reason and it's because they are cheaply made using uneffiecent materials and would no way last as long as a bike which was made of Aluminium and fitted with decent parts. Save up an extra £100 and spend more on a better bike because it would definitely last longer than this bike would. If your new and wanting to take up cycling I'd recommend researching what's best to start with and the difference between what's good and what's bad. It's sometimes hard to see what pushes the value of bike prices so high without actually looking at what parts the bike has been fitted and the type of frame

The bike is completely fine thank you very much, and doesn't remotely make my life any more difficult. I don't doubt it requires more effort to move than a more expensive, lighter bike - but I'm not a lazy slob (hence the cycling!). I'm more than capable of riding the bike with ease and if it's using more of my energy to do so that's great. More effort = more calories burnt.

And to the person who asked, it's very similar to this: hotukdeals.com/dea…431 - which looks very similar to this bike.

site should be renamed hotmuddyfoxdeals.com

rubbish "bikes" made to a ridiculously low price point, that would rarely cover decent inner tubes and tyres. Keep it simple when buying cheap, it will be more fun, lighter, better specced and not look crap.

What £49 for a bike! I could walk for that money!

fishmaster

What £49 for a bike! I could walk for that money!



Tell me about it, I can get a £4 pair of flip flops and run to work!

Its a good deal for the money, I have a Raleigh - its steel and heavy - i like things well built - they last longer unlike expensive alloy bikes which are a magnet for thieves.

so what cheap rigid bike would people recommend? only 4 mile ride to work

will do the job for amount of riding i do ... bargain. not everyone wants a carbon fibre space rocket bike at many times the price! agree with above comment. hardcore bike snobs

okay then... suggest a better bike for 50 quid? so far its just been hate for this bike. not suggestions for a better one at same price?

I cant find anything with 49 quid ? Can someone point me to that link ? I ll buy one and put in shed for summer

The muddyfox bike from sportsdirect is a better deal.. ok its not the muddyfox of old but its far better than this scrap for 50 quid more and its alliminium front suspension with ez fire gears. I made the mistake of buying an argos branded bike when i got back into cycling, had 2 rides on it and gave it away. I got myself a giant boulder after that, moral is buy cheap... buy twice. I now own a carrera kraken and a specialized tri cross, not a snob but if I was starting out again I would get tbe sports direct bike.

Why put in the shed for the summer? Surely you would put a bike in the shed for the winter and use it in the summer.

Every time a cheap bike is posted the Mamils appear in force. It makes me wonder how anyone actually managed to cycle anywhere 20-30 years ago, before the likes of giant had developed hybrid lightweight alloy frames which weigh 25% less but cost 300% more...

Please bike lovers, just accept that some people want a bike for mucking about on, cycling to shop and don't want to don Lycra, shave their legs and take out a bank loan to buy a machine that only takes them from A to B fractionally quicker than this bike will.

I guess you drive a 30 year old car and use a 30 year old TV?

Would you buy a CRT TV because it was £100 less than a nice LCD HD TV? Drive a Robin Reliant because its nice and cheap?

Is this store specific deal ( darlington ) ? I would love to get a bike if there are others around for 50, always a good price for a new bike.. If anyone know, kindly share it, much appreciated.
