250w is still great if you live somewhere hilly.

Missus has one of the earlier ones. Perhaps it is because she is fairly small, but it works well on the hills here in Wales. For me of average height, I found it too small and fairly pointless so I wonder if there is a sweet spot in terms of the size, weight and fitness.

It looks to me that this new version has had many tweaks to it. The hub motor looks different as does the battery - and it has replaced the rear brake for a v-brake. It might perform quite differently to the older version.

How much of an issue is not being able to adjust the handle bar height? … How much of an issue is not being able to adjust the handle bar height? Sounds like it could be unusable of you're too tall or too short??



​You can get stem extender adaptors, kind of common for this style of bike.

Yes exactly the same issues as power tools as you would expect. Many power tool chargers will charge fast and then taper off the charge rate as the batteries get full. Some won't even fully charge to the capacity of the cells to extend battery life and reduce warranty returns. The tools themselves will often protect the batteries from going below a 20% charge to protect the battery and allow safe storage for months without cell damage. Thermal safety sensors are in both the tool and the charger due to li-ion cells explosive nature. I suspect the issue of customers using their li-ion drill outside and leaving it in clear view of the baking sun leading to cutting out in use probably isn't much different from an e-bike parked in the baking sun and then cutting out when you hit the hills.

The manufacturers 500 odd cycles is a upper limit based on laboratory conditions with optimum charging rates/times temps. When a battery is used dozens of more significant factors will come into play that will affect the lifetime like Quality of charger, storage temps, ageing, discharge rates, time left discharged, time between charges, temperatures during storage discharge and charge even how long you leave it on the charger when full. efficiency of charging equipment and over charge protection etc. All these factors vary between batteries some like to be left on charge when not in use like golf trolley batteries others should be disconnected once fully charged. Lith-ion batteries do not last significantly longer than conventional deep cycle batteries but give greater power under varying loads but do tend to cut out quicker when running low to protect them from undervoltage

I can fully believe this could be 14kg

Original Poster

One of the figures will have to be wrong either amazon or argos as there is no way a box and its packaging is only 1kg and looking at the bike and its components I can't see it being 14kg but if weight is a critical figure for you I guess assume the heaviest figure.

Bertz99

Argos states fully assembled weight of 14kg.



​Thank you everyone. That's great.

Does anyone know the weight of this bike? Thanks


Argos states fully assembled weight of 14kg.

Actually further in the review of that viking bike it says its 10.9kg not 8kg so I guess the Cetus would be similar.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING! Just got me one set, might get another for my partner's bike. Chain Reaction had the same deal but are sold out. Good find, exceptional value

I... don't know how I missed that these were hydraulic. My bad!

So... they don't need bleeding :pAs for mech vs hydra... the avids don't need much tweaking, not sure about these. It IS one advantage of hydraulic, I guess. Once set there's no cable stretching or similar.



​Lol just spotted that now, thought they were hydraulic

You may be better off wth the shimano for £17.50 a front or back
on Merlin cycles, if your rotors are still in good nick

Kreima Heimdallr Bike Lock / LED Front + Rear Lightset – Parkers of Bolton £14.95
Bike lock that is also a front and rear light. Seems a decent saving and cracking design
Latest commentsPost comment

good for adding a rear wheel lock but the effort involved in removing and locking I'd proably rather have a larger lock or just quick release it. ANd how good are the lights?

'Save £45.05' ummmmmm, really.
More of a gimmick than anthing else, imo.
