To be honest, my parents got me a steel full-sus bike when i was younger.
The novelty of full-sus wears off quickly when my friends were flying about on their cheap mountain/bmx bikes that wieghed half what mine was.

Its £70 for a kids bike still, 5 mins on google and i saw a good few alternatives around the same price point.
It's a cheap kids bike and ok for £70 but nothing special. If you can get one with no suspension for similar money it'll be a better buy.

Alternatively for the RRP Raleigh make one with an alloy frame (don't buy pay over £100 for a steel frame) and Edinburgh Bicycle Coop (online too, so not just in Edinburgh) sell their own "Revolution" brand. The kids' 20" Revolution is a rebranded Raleigh - my son has this and it was an excellent buy for the money; much lighter than anything else at that price, cheaper than proper brands like Ridgeback or Trek and EBC's service was excellent when we had a minor problem with the brakes and a neighbour's parked car!

Don't be impressed by the Muddyfox brand; they went bust years ago and now they're just cheap bikes made by Universal Cycles (same as all the other cheap bikes in Argos, Toys-r-us, Sports Direct and the supermarkets) with a Muddyfox sticker instead of Reebok, British Eagle or whatever.
I've reserved one - look its a £70 bike which should will be ok for what my kid will need

I used to own expensive road bikes with campag wheels, gears, brakes etc, but this thing will be outgrown in a year or so so I don't need/want to spend a fortune. I'm sure it will suffice - its not a rolls royce and I think at £70 I've gathered that

Well i did say theres other bikes at the same price point.
£70 isnt mega cheap thats the point. You can get bikes for the same price that are nicer and arent a Ton weight.
And talking from my personal experience when i was younger, with a bike nearly the exact same, itl be lucky to last a year. Mudguards, brake/gear cables dangling all over. Its a kids bike theyl be broken off in a few weeks lol. Even my mates on their cheap tesco bikes without full-suspension used to beat me in "races" and it irritated the hell out of me. Couldnt wait to get rid of mine, ended up intentionally destroying the thing so could get another cheapo.
