No longer the old great Muddyfox but cheap, relatively well equipped and quite light bike (if SD's declaration is true).
The entry level MTB Shimano Acera range is fairly well made and reliable .
Bear in mind the disc brakes & front suspension fork within this price range are not going to be of great quality ( discs are for sure mechanical / I would prefer just rigid forks and standard v brakes at this price point)...but well, you can't have everything for £140. Should be absolutely fine for 'Sunday cyclists'.
Ridiculous RRP of £399.99.

Quidco 5% for the new customers (~ £7), 2% for the rest of us

Likewise - searched internet and no reviews........

I'm tempted as a cheap 6 mile trek to work and back

As much as i hate sportsdirect, it does seem a good price for what you get.

Same bike different name/colour
Muddyfox Turbulance
but quoted weight is a more realistic 16kg not 14kg
I bought a BigFoot 29er from sportsdirect and was quite happy tbh. A little heavy but handles ok. Good value for money compared with the big names.

HOT! doesn't have the twist gears either.

Sooooo tempted

Living off the name of the 80's. Oh how things change.

I'm not a fan of todays Muddyfox and how it isn't anywhere near the quality what they used to be...... but saying that, this has decent spec gears & shifters and its only a paltry £140.
Have to give it heat for that.

Very tempted to buy this, the old saracen is getting past it!

avoid suspension and go for one of the cheaper, lighter and more reliable bikes in Decatlon, and get decent customer service.

Why Avoid Suspension.. Surely Front Suspension is OK.. its rear thats waste of time and energy...

Although the frame and drivetrain seem ok, the wheels, brakes and suspension fork are made of cheese. Not a bargain as you'll spend more on repairs in the first year, plus SportsDirect - havent seen too many bike mechanics in their shops if you need a adjustment.

Save yourself a lot of heartache and just buy a better bike.

Front suspension on budget bikes is a marketing gimmick and I wish they'd do away with it. It's there simply to make the bike look less dorky than it would with a rigid fork. They are heavy and will not perform as a "suspension" fork in any sense of the word. Same goes for cheap mechanical disc brakes. V-brakes will be much better, they just don't look "cool".

At this price point any suspension is likely to do nothing but add weight. Shimano do good stuff but they also do some absolute junk. Better picking up something decent second hand.

Saturday delivery for just 6.99 that's good for a bike, the bike is decent for the price. I tried decathlons rockrider and it wasn't for me...

I am sure there is some mix up with descriptions.it appears there was an older model branded also as 'turbulence' with steel frame and completely different fork and gear.all the available on internet reviews seem to belongs to the older blue/white model. This one, on the other hand looks indeed exactly the same as the anarchy.Sportsdirect also mentioned alloy forks (unlike with the anarchy) but the indicated weight is higher! .tbh I am a bit puzzeled but I still ordered it as I couldn't find anything better within my budget.(I didn't want used bike and the better ones are significantly more expensive).

Its just pointless, you need suspension if you are going on very rough terrain, this bike is not suited for very rough terrain, so basically you are adding needless weight, and sloppy steering, and bits to go wrong, rusty and need a service.

I also agree ref disc brakes, cheap cable pull discs are pretty poor, even cheap V brakes trump them for braking.

It does have the shimano groupset in its favour, all Shimano stuff is reliable and useable.

You just need padded shorts, and you can get cycling pants if that is your thing! Also worth looking at the cheaper Carreras in Halfords, if they are on "offer" not full RRP.

bought it will see if its any good and get back
