Muddyfox fixie/single speed bike (flip-flop hub) at Sports Direct for £109.99

Looks to be great value for the price. Don't forget topcashback if you are new to sportsdirect. You may also find you can buy sportsdirect vouchers discounted at zeek (again buy them going through topcashback and use any zeek codes going).

It's your standard fixie bike with horizontal dropouts on a steel frame, interesting wheels and Ahead stem and a few other nice touches. Flipflop hub means it can be toggled between single speed and fixie. There are other colour options but unfortunately £20 dearer, I guess this is the least popular colour, I have to say I like the colour though. There is a choice of 2 frame sizes.

I know many don't like Sports direct and certainly they won't be able to offer much support on this purchase. If your after a cheap fixie to try this does look like something that could normally sell for £200 or more in many places.

Many other bikes on the site look good value but there are many bikes that are too poorly equipped in components to consider. A few of the bikes around £230 to £330 look good value.


The Muddyfox Fixie is ideal for getting around town or commuting through the busy city centres. Designed for speed and easy to maintain, this bike is fitted with 700C road wheels, slick road tyres and alloy calliper brakes. The Flip-Flop rear hub means that this bike can easily be converted from a fixed sprocket to a freewheel when needed!

Shouldn't it really be about the actual product and whether it is good value? Do you know of a better value fixie bike?

If it was any more basic it wouldn't have wheels

Until it sold out to Sports Direct 👎
Some of the top muddyfox models now look pretty good but their entry level stuff is best avoided to say the least but let the components tell the story. Some of their mountain bikes have very low end forks and freewheels and aren't really mountain bikes at all under £200.

I mean this for £270 is pretty damn good with decent components. I've seen mountain bikes in local bike shops for 50% more with far worse components, even freewheels and tourney derailleurs.

There are more basic models of fixies, ones without the flipflop hub and only have a brake on the front. I think that is the point though its a minimalist design that many people prefer, its pure cycling with no gears to worry about and many find fixies have better feel.

Fixie bikes kill children?!? Not heard that story, I remember a recent story of a mother being killed by someone riding a fixie but that was a one off and doesn't compare to the huge number of children and people in general killed by cars. Besides this bike effectively has 3 brakes in fixie mode, 2 normal brakes and the fact you can use your leg power to slow the rotation of the crank to quickly slow the bike. People normally have better attention for road conditions on a fixie or single speed bike as there are no gears to think about. Bikes rarely kill pedestrians they just don't have the weight or speed compared to a car or articulated lorry.
I use to work for a bike shop muddy Fox are a crap brand. Years ago they were good but now they are like universal bike rusty and shi*.

Numpty killer


That bike had no caliper brakes at all purely relying on the fixed gearing for braking. This bike not only has fixed gear braking but 2 caliper brakes in addition.

It's a brand slap on imported bikes. The low end bikes can be bad but the higher end bikes are pretty decent. The frames appear to be fuji-ta in fact the fuji-ta site clearly states they make Dunlop bikes which was one of Sports Direct's brands until they sold it on to a Japanese company. Fuji-ta also make Cannondale, Bianchi, Raleigh and many other brands. Universal cycles tend to have the bikes assembled outside China (Vietnam, Bangladesh etc) using a good quality fuji-ta frame from China (avoids EU duty on Chinese bikes). You can clearly see some of the Muddyfox mountain bikes are fuji-ta which are some of the best quality frames in the world. The low end frames won't be though, like the nasty cheap dual suspension models.

fuji-ta.com/mou…kes

To be honest a huge percentage of the bikes we buy under many different brands are actually fuji-ta. They are by far the biggest manufacturer of bikes in the world with about 14 million complete bikes made and god knows how many frames supplied to other companies to assemble. It's not difficult to spot their frames on the big brands.

Here Here .... Well Said.. I think some people just like the sound of their own thoughts and then feel the need to comment to everyone about those thoughts....perhaps it makes them feel important? or more likely they have an unrealistic perception of their opinions...Good Answer

Or come with square wheels

That comes after the first run down a trail... :-)
If you haven't gone for it yet there is a 20% off discount code if you use the app this weekend. 'APP20'.

Don't forget you can also use topcashback to zeek to buy discount giftcards to use. I think £6 for new zeek customers plus any further discount codes you can use at the zeek site itself.

So in theory

£105 minus 20% equals £84.

£50 sportsdirect voucher is £48 via zeek but you might be able to add £6 or more to that.

So with £4.99 delivery could get it for about £81 delivered or better.

I guess if you don't like the colour scheme (too feminine)you might have to add a pound or two for a new set of grips and perhaps a can of rattle spray of your chosen colour to do the wheels.

also currently you can get a further 20% off buying via the app

another good value bike is this one

£136 + delivery with the extra 20% off

Unfortunately SportsDirect have run the brand into the mud.
There are some decent bikes in the muddyfox range which are great value but they also sell complete crap at the bottom end. Where as Halfords have Apollo, Carrera, Voodoo and Boardman spanning different quality levels Muddyfox do a similar range (perhaps not quite as high end) but under one brand. Unfortunately the association with Mike Ashley means no one will cut the brand any slack and of course they are box shifters so cannot provide the support of shops like Halfords.
Anyone know if this takes 1/2 or 9/16 pedals? thanks
