Don't bother....at this price your better of buying a bike without rear suspension.

You don't get much for £150, but if that's you budget then consider Rockrider 5.1. it's not great by any means, but better than the above

A hybrid without any cheap suspension would probably be the best way to go with the B'Twin Riverside being one of the best at this price

As Slamdunkin says, better off getting one of the Decathlon bikes or 2nd hand. These types of bikes are great for the kids, in the smaller sizes, but I wouldn't trust one for an adult as, if you're anything like me, you'd actually want to take it off-road.

Junk!

lol'd at top quality ride & light frame.

Also as I've said before. Any bike with grip shift is a pile of junk.

then you aren't worth listening to then.

The Sram XX and XO twist grip shifters are very good.

I originally had the first comment on this deal, suggesting that the bike snobs would be along soon to sneer. Comment was removed, presumably it was thought to be 'flaming'. Looks like I was right though - here you all are
Why don't you stick to your barmy thousand pound bike threads where you all get to drool over stupidly overpriced tat, eh?

A little over dramatic. I think the general consensus is that if you are looking for a bike at around the £150 mark, and there's nothing wrong with that, then your £150 would be better spent on the bikes mentioned in previous threads. Decathlon do some great value bikes at around this price. I know because I own a Rockrider and for the cash it is a cracking bike.

Its nothing to do with snobbery, just value for money

tried a 150 bike decided I liked riding so started using it ... new wheel....new seat.... new gears....brakes......time for it to go! - cheap bikes don't off road .. however I did get 100 back on ebay try a cheap bike then if you like it get a good one you wont regret it!

Most of what has been said is sound advice, for an adult I would suggest staying away from these bikes & either look for a good 2nd hand bike or, if you want a new one, head to Decathlon for a decent, honest MTB. I got a very similar bike to this for my 7y/o daughter last Christmas (20" wheel Dunlop one) and it's a cracking kids bike. She loves riding it & it's only needed a new grip shift (£8 on eBay) BUT for an adult bike I don't really think these are suitable. For the record mines a 2nd hand GT hardtail that didn't cost much more than this bike so hardly a snobs bike.

this is overpriced tat and will fall apart within weeks

been there done it, as most people commenting probably have

i ride a £400 bike so i wouldn't call myself a "bike snob" if people want to spend thousands then it's their money and i'd trust what they say more than someone riding a bike from argos

I only once paid more than £150 for a bike (my daughter's 24" Trek MTB cost £180!).

My daughter, wife and me now ride Trek hybrids, and my son has a 20" Edinburgh Bicycle Coop MTB. I used to own a really nice Gary Fisher (but it got nicked - I guess there's an argument for buying a rubbish bike. But by the same argument you'd wear horrible clothes to deter muggers, own a £10 phone and drive an elderly, rusty car). All these bikes cost £150 or less new. All are ten times better than this cheap piece of overpriced junk.

As has already been pointed out, you're overreacting. No bike snob has suggested spending more on something better; in what's now the 1st post slamdunkin has suggested 2 bikes at the same price which represent much better value for money, making this deal cold.

I'd disagree with the post suggesting it's OK for a kid - why inflict it on a kid when you can get them a proper bike for the same money in Decathlon?

Just giving my opinion, my daughters bike was £85 brand new, inc delivery, and I have no complaints at all, nor does my daughter. She's not interested in following me through the local woods and just wanted a bike she could ride round the streets with her mates & this was within my budget. I'd looked at 2nd hand name brands & Decathlon but none were within budget so took a gamble on a 20" Dunlop "MTB" and it's been a fantastic bike. Yes it's heavy & the parts are the cheapest there is but apart from the grip shift breaking recently it's been faultless. Once she's outgrown the bike I could probably sell it for £40-50, can't complain at that. If my budget was £150 I would have had a lot more bikes to choose from, the bike listed here wouldn't have been on that list though.

Can't argue with that, cheap bikes are toys for kids to play on - if it's just to ride up n down the street and is gonna get thrown on the ground all the time then why not. I decided to pay more because I like to be able to cycle places with my kids and it seems unfair to make them pedal something ridiculously heavy when they're already disadvantaged by being much smaller than me (though my 13 year old daughter certainly doesn't struggle to keep up anymore). In addition I often take the bikes on holiday so I wanted bikes light enough to lift onto the roof of the car without making my back worse than it already is. Cheap bikes aren't necessarily a bad thing, but over-priced ones always are.
