It is what it is, Yes, it's a BSO rather than a 'proper bike', but treat it well, make sure the bits that are supposed to be tight are tight, and the bits that are supposed to be greased are greased and it'll do its job fine. Hard to find specs for this but all pretty predictable. I wouldn't read much into the £399 RRP. But it's shiny and warrantied.

Agreed, 14kg is heavy for a mountain bike today! Surely it can't be that heavy?

I'll add some heat just for that description - Straight to the point and well said - brilliant


But seriously that looks like a decent enough bike for little money

Maybe nobody should give opinions on anything then for fear of sounding like a snob, and we can all go out and buy any old rubbish based on price alone without any consideration to whether it's fit for the job or not.

Cheers, it's difficult keeping everyone happy, pretend it's worth every penny of its £400 RRP and therefore a bargain at £140 and you'd get accused of posting rubbish, try to be more realistic and you are a bike expert snob It's pretty clear I think it's a decent enough deal for the price otherwise I wouldn't have posted it! But it would be misleading to say it's a £400 bike at £140

Giving opinions is not the same as making constant 'BSO', 'Oh looks it's finally got pedals' jokes in every cheap bike thread.

Yeah but for every comment like that, there's several valid points posted too. We can't have a 'forum', and then suppress opinions. It defeats the object. Just ignore derogatory comments.
Amazing price and worth getting for use to and from work if your in a city as its less attractive to thieves. Warrantied as well !
Thanks for posting amazing deal op.
Seems OK for a cheap bike.

Those who complain about the bikes snobs complaining about BSOs seem to have missed that this isn't a full-suspension, steel-framed "mountain bike". It's just a cheap bike with no unnecessary nonsense.

Like others, I can't understand why it's 14kg.
For most people it'd make more sense with a flatbar - it's really not a racing machine.
Better than most of Sport Direct's offerings though.
Bike weight makes very little difference unless you have to carry it. Components are all of the shelf and frame will be made in the production line as bikes multiple times the price for different branding. Yes there are plenty of second hand bargains, but also stolen and ridiculous liars who would sell this bike claiming they had paid the rrp. As far as then"racing" bars i prefer that set up. You distribute the weight more and there are multiple hand positions. Almost nobody on a racer races !

You. Lol
It might serve you well as a second bike - a solo winter bike (if you can fit guards), turbo trainer bike or a pop to the pub bike. Sure it's heavy, but when you've over-indulged over Christmas, the extra weight of the bike will assist with shifting your extra weight and come the spring, when you wheel out the full carbon flying machine, you'll be ahead of those who sat on their @rses all winter!

Also it might be good if you do need to keep it in a crime black-spot - not too expensive to lose, but good enough for a short commute whilst it remains yours...

It depends on individual circumstance. I have a Raleigh Scorpio from the 80's (1880's I think, given its weight) and that is fine as a turbo trainer bike and to get me back and forth to footy. Yes, it's a heap of junk, but it's perfect for the job and I still lock it even now and I'm sure people snigger, but then it doesn't attract the unwanted attention my carbon bike would.
Very tempted as a winter or commute bike.
Its certainly a POS

is that what was meant ?
Note , pedals included .

Say no more

if you ever had intentions taking up road racing this is the way to kill off that ambition straight away
The Race 200 is a much better bike, it's about £50 more but you get a much better drivetrain with a long life stronger freehub. There are other upgrades too. It's well worth the extra money.


sportsdirect.com/mud…048


I would always try to avoid a freewheel on a race bike. It can lead to many issues with the bike. That's not to say the Race 100 is a bad bike it's just you can do a lot better for just a little bit more money.


As it stands the Race 100 is about the same as the Carrera Zelos in spec and better than the Triban 100 but the Race 200 is more like the Carrera Virtuoso, a much better bike than the Zelos.


Some of the weights given by Sports direct are actually higher than the actual weight of the bike so expect them to be a bit less than stated.


The bikes are likely made by Fuji-ta who make many bikes for various brands including Carrera, Cannondale, Raleigh, GT, Scott plus 100s of other bike brands. Probably the best budget frame manufacturer and the biggest bicycle manufacture in the world.

That is miles better but doesn't make this bike junk in fact a carbon fork is far more likely to fail than steel or aluminium so you could make the case that this Muddyfox bike is safer. There is also the risk buying secondhand that the bike will have worn components or be crash damaged which is critically dangerous if the frame or forks are carbon. Aluminium frames always get weaker with use too due to lack of an endurance limit so an Allez from a few years ago could be much closer to cracking and frame failure especially if crashed.

Not forgetting you need a certain skill level to buy secondhand safely and of course supply of decent bikes is erratic and simply may not be available when you want to get a bike. A quick look on my gumtree shows a fairly heavily worn old Allez for £245, a Trek for £700 and a Carrera Virtuoso for £125. None of them scream out me as being a bargain even if you can haggle the price a bit. They look like fair prices. The current Virtuoso was recently available for about £200 with stacked discounts etc, brand new with warranty with no risk of being crashed. I do like Specialized though, the frames are made by Merida who jointly own the Specialized company. Merida used to make some damn fine frames for the old Saracen company, super strong jump bike frames etc. Merida and Giant were both state of the art frame manufacturers at the time. Both companies I would say are a step above Fuji-ta for both aluminium and carbon frames but a lot of top brands use Fuji-ta like Cannondale.

When I bought my first bike I ignored advice like this and got a cheap bike from Halfords, worst bike I’ve ever owned and had to take it in 3 times. Ended up getting a director level complaint in and they gave me an extra £300 towards a more expensive bike so got one of the Boardman ones which was much better, but with the extra cost it should be. My next bike I took the advice and bought decent and it’s a world of difference, advice is just that though, it’s up to you if you take it.
