If you aren't going to be cycling on anything knarly, I'd stick with front suspension only. Dual suspension in your price range will be very heavy.

True.

I bought a dual suspension Muddy Fox a couple of years ago for £200 I think and it was as you said heavy. Even just riding on the flat took some effort. Luckily upgraded since got a decent hardtail makes a hell of a difference

OP.... don't waste your money, it will be garbage. How can you possible expect a full susser for this money.
Not that you would ever need full suspension, or even front suspension if you are only riding on towpaths and the like.
You could get a Carrera Subway for only £200.... It will be leagues above this in quality and will ride far better.

right

If this is anything like the muddyfox my mate bought from Argos then it won't stand up to any terrain that would remotely justify full suspension. His lasted about 3 weeks of medium to moderate forest use.

For road/path riding, the subway wins for me. Well worth the extra bit of money. Although I'm carrera biased.
However, be aware that some halfords are better than others at assembling the bikes. The stores are definitely the weak link in the brand.

which subway should I buy? 2011/12 or 13? 80 quids price difference is there.

I'm not too sure on the differences, but gut instinct would be to say the cheaper one. But have a read through the two specs and see if there is anything noticeably different.

disc breaks and 24 instead of 21 gears. 80 quids extra though. About me. I rided bikes in india until I was 25 as that was the only option for me then. and then moved down here not ridden a push bike for last 7 years. I ride honda though.

I loved riding my bikes in india on yhe roads then as I was expert riding on roads and was able to sometimes overtake tuc tucs. had few minor accidents with scooters and mopeds and of course with other push bikes but nothing serious.

The Zinc branded bikes at Argos might be Indian made. I bought a 20 inch BMX from them last week and it is an excellent piece of engineering. That particular bike, made in India

I will have a look

Non of you can ride a bike well enough to get use of full suspension, no matter how much of your child's government savings you spend.

99% of my use is forest, for me full suspension is essential. No children, and no government savings, just my own hard earned cash.

Go troll elsewhere.......
