I got one of these this week for a short commute to work and to try my hand at some trial stuff to see if I get on with it.

I know it's cheap and cheerful but I think the build quality is pretty good. Nice chunky frame and tyres, front disc brake as well.

Overall I am pleased with it. My legs aren't though.

This was in their last catalogue at £259.99.

Looks very nice for the price! Sure someone will be along to point out what there is wrong with it and link to some £3k bike but it will definitely suit your requirements!

I'm forever posting this but.....

If you want a cheap bike, you are far better buying a Rockrider 5.0 from Decathlon for £99.

Better bike, set-up by a proper bike mechanic, and they'll fix/service it for you too.

I agree - the biggest problem with the cheaper bikes is things get loose/stretch and begin to rattle (ok it happens to all bikes but it's more apparent on cheaper ones).

Start off with a reasonable set up and you'll reduce this headache, plus you can take it back the moment things don't work quite right and they'll adjust it for you, hopefully free of charge!

Beware Muddyfox now is not the same as Muddyfox from 90's when it was a good brand

Don't give up yet, each time you say it you might prevent someone getting an unsuitable bike.
