Apologies. I forgot to mention that!:|
to summarise posts to follow, this is too cheap to be a bike. Bikes have to be made of carbon fibre and cost over £2000 or they are deathtraps to avoid. ...But hot from me who still thinks they are basically toys
This looks idenitcal to a muddyfox bike I got from tesco earlier in the year (called Impel, I think). The build quality is very dubious, there are a number of niggles with the bike and I have also replaced the pedals and the saddle as they were really poor. Additionally the bracket that holds the saddle on snapped when I was riding along but luckily didnt cause an accident. Aside this, the gears needed lots of realignment and I need to keep tightening a number of bolts as they loosen, I'm going down the threadlock route next.

Not a great bike.

A toy that has the potential to throw you into traffic, trees, walls, rivers, other people/cyclists if and when it decides to break.
Admittedly some people do spend silly money on bikes, but I would not advice buying the cheapest bike possible.

And for what its worth, I often commute to work, to the shops and around town on my 'toy'.
Cold - these are terrible quality, trading a name from the nineties which had a good reputation. Avoid unless you can get it for £30 from tesco as then it becomes affordable to keep fixing all the bits that break And yes - I speak from experience. Bought one from Argos 2 years ago. Broke after 3 rides, deraileur bricked itself and the pedal spindle developed a click as the cheap soft metals ground against each other. Halfords have a half price sale on I think - do yourself a favour and hop over there. Avoid the apollo IMHO but the Carrera range are good - Had one of those for a year now and no probs.
can get for £99
