Why not pay a few quid more for a decent bike ?

Because I'd rather have a cheap bike and a holiday, instead of a more expensive bike and waiting until next year to see the sun again.

I could find more, but all these bikes are twice as good as any of those cheap Raleigh bikes, that aren't worth £60 never mind £150.

Quality doesn't always have to cost the earth (as long as your prepared to look)

Enjoy your holiday;-)

Think I'll buy this one if it goes back down to £125.

I fancy a bike now the my son is mobile on his, only problem is storage. Do Halfords have any decent foldable bikes or is it best to look elsewhere ?

Halfords deal with Dahon, who are a large manufacturer of folding bikes.

here's another good alternative for £150 delivered, 24 speed; ez fire shifters, although it has a steel rear frame

Most of these bikes have been at the prices show for a while now. I had brought an Apollo XC.26S 17" Mens Cross Country Mountain Bike with the 10% off about 6 weeks ago (was looking forward to it) and on the first day on riding it the gears kept on changing automatically (bad set up) and the peace of plastic supporting the gears by the foot pedals broke off while traveling. Good job I got my money back though.

i look at the above bikes and they dont look anything special and have normal brakes. why are they better the normal ones?

I Purchased one on Sataurday for my son as a Christmas present shipped today, Good deal. :santa:

Any recommendations re bike storage. We have a shed but its pretty full at the mo. Kids bikes are in the porch so really need storage space. Don't want to spend over £200 though.

Any help greatly appreciated.

That looks like it's not a bad bike for the price, but there are two problems with it.

First, a full suspension bike is a heck of a lot more effort to ride on the road or a normal "trail" (a path) because a good deal of your downward force on the pedals just goes into pushing the bike downwards on it's suspension. You'll be less able to ride long distances on it because you're wasting lots of energy just bouncing up and down.

Second, because it's relatively cheap the frame and wheel hubs won't be all that strong, so it's not very safe for doing the sort of extreme downhill that makes full suspension useful. It'll take some punishment but you definitely don't want to do too many 6ft drops on it or you'll be walking back home with a bike that needs mending (hopefully without serious injury).

I have nothing against Raleigh bikes. They make good inexpensive stuff that's great for weekend and occasional riders. I just wouldn't recommend buying a cheap full suspension model of any brand.

Would that include this one: amazon.co.uk/Sil…8-6 ?

The bike that I mentioned Apollo XC.26S 17" Mens Cross Country Mountain Bike (halfords.com/web…173) it says It was £194.99 (but not with the mountain bikes) and now it went back to £149.99.

Amazon have some cheaper bikes than halfords for kids.
