Not worth it. 2nd hand rigid MTB will be far better for the money (lighter, better groupset, more efficient etc)

These bikes are not great. They are the same quality as a supermarket own.
I would say the Decathlon B'twin bikes are better quality at similar prices.

That's never a 200 pound bike.
Very heavy
Steel frame - 14kg (more like 17)for 20inch bike - you don't want your child to carry this, stay away not worth a penny...
Halfords have similar bike £100 anyway which look same

That's how much it weighs ;-)


Full suspension bikes at this price will always be heavy and naff.
If you hate your child and don't want they to cycle then this is a bargin. However if you love you child and want them to enjoy cycleing £120 will get you something far better off gumtree. Never paid more than that for my kids bikes upto about the age of 12 and always made my money back ( if you look after them).
I guess if you don't want your child to go far its not a bad option, probably take the child 1/2hr just to travel 30 metres. It's pure junk though and pretty much worthless besides you only have to look on ebay, gumtree or facebook marketplace to see such bikes go for next to nothing secondhand as the child outgrows them quickly and is soon for sale. Seems pointless buying a new one save that for when he/she reaches close to adult size. As ever keep cheap bikes simple, no suspension, makes them lighter too. If you can't service bikes yourself buy from Halfords, they are cheaper than this plus they will set them up for your and do a 6 week service and probably the best option for cheap ongoing support. Sports direct are a box shifter with poor customer service.
These are like pedalling a motorbike and just as heavy, certainly keep the kids fit and don’t get stolen if they leave em in the street!

Usually seen broken on the big pile of scrap in a scrapyard.

As many suggest buy a decent 2nd hand bike, it will last 10 times longer.

I can remember when Muddy Fox was a quality brand - it was Muddy Fox that really introduced the mountain bike to the U.K. No doubt the financiers and capital investors turned it into the company it is today... only interested in selling mass produced crap in big volume.
Looks like a death trap
Lmao this weighs more than my adult full sus mtb

As with others this is complete junk please don't buy

Have a look at the UK MTB documentary on Amazon Prime. The original founders were left high and dry by their distributers and they were forced to fold. The name has been progressively ground down as the years go by onto ever worsening bikes. Such a shame but it does show just how much strength the brand had. It's a shame that so many people much just associate Muddy Fox with crap and not the original Couriers with a fluro disc wheel!
Muddy Fox = Sports Direct tat.
Heap of junk. The forks will probably be bent out the box like the one I safety checked for a customer.

Thanks Johnny, I will take a look. My first MTB was a pearlescent white Muddy Fox... suspension didn’t exist then. Great bike with innovation like cantilever brakes and three front chainrings! Even though I ride quality bikes the one that I had the most fun on was an Orange Prestige with the thin steel tubing - you could throw that into anything - even had zefal strap toe-clips which I’m going to try again!

It's well worth a look, I can't remember the exact details but the story was heartbreaking and the failure was totally unnecessary.

As you had an Orange Prestige, what do you think of the new P7 & P7 29er?
