should note this is Walsall clearance bargains - Jerome retail park

Some of the stock in the store isn't customer returns, it's actually stock unsold from the last few catalogues.

Excellent find. What I the Argos catalogue number.

I know its only my opinion but really wouldn't touch muddy fox with a barge pole after 2 really bad experiences never had bikes fall to bits like they did

very poor quality bike - worth spending a bit extra to get a bike that will last longer, unless of course you want it to decorate the shed/garage where most bikes seem to stay once bought!!

On a low budget this one would be a better buy and lighter.

I abused mine yesterday on the dirt track near my house, most very expensive bikes normal wouldn't handle it. I guess I was lucky to get a very good one. Mine is a impel I believe.

It' a good price but you should think yourself lucky if bits dont fail very quickly as this brand is nothing like what it was years ago. Cheap components and it seems to be pot luck if they fail or not.

Stay away from Argos for bikes...when it falls to pieces and you take it back...thats when the fun starts....google`s your friend

also had some Raleigh bikes too

An expensive bike wouldn't handle your poxy dirt track, but you can ride it with ease on your sack of sh1t?

It is a complete waste if time buying any full suspension bike that doesn't cost £750+. I'm not being a snob, cheap "suspension" bikes are heavy, poorly made and will be slower, and more effort than an equivalent hardtail. I personally wouldn't bother with suspension forks either unless you are spending £300+. Suspension is when you have a spring that is damped, ie something that slows the recoil and can be adjusted according to the rider's weight.

These bikes, any many others like them are just pig iron pipes with pivots that will wear and crude springs. My advice would be to save up the extra and buy a Carrera Subway from Halfords. Yes, it is more expensive at £200 and no it's not a suspension bike. You are however getting much better VFM and a bike that is worth maintaining, can be maintained and will last a good while. It will literally weigh half as much, any theoretical performance edge "suspension" gives you is lost through the immense weight you have to shift.

These cheap bikes are a waste of natural resources. Try popping back into Argos, or your local bike shop and ask if they can get you replacement pivot bushings/shocks/bearings for the frame? I bet they can't and when they are worn your bike is scrap.

Sorry to come across as so negative but lots of people are put of cycling because they ride awful bikes a few times and then leave them gathering dust in the shed.

Shine Hunter, where is your killer local bike track? How does it compare to Snowdon, Peak District, or any of the many MTB XC race series that are now starting up for spring?

Thanks for the heads up on this, bought one today and then got my daughter a new bike from the same place. Can't fault the service, very friendly, put them together and checked them whilst we waited. Also got good warranties thrown in for free. Cheers!

does the muddy fox storm have twist gears or push gears i like the push gears better .
