I am sure the 5ft9 to 6ft1 is incorrect, with the seat in its lowest position I would say easily okay for just over 5ft and above.

dont think so - depends on the frame but my own 19 inch frame no 5 footer is going to ride it whilst seated
good deal
Its okay apart from the Gear Shifters: Microshift 6 speed they are not very good.
The Apollo Phaze is £120 too, with front suspension and better reviews.

Might be a slight improvement on my Raleigh Ascender from 1992!
Tempted to get as a station bike will be better than my current 15 yr old halfords apollo..

on a cheap bike you do NOT want front suspension! Adds weight, absorbs pedalling energy, will prove troublesome and will not be beneficial.

Don't talk nonsense! The Halfords advice is good and you are talking through your rear end!

no 5 footer will be able to ride my bike with 19" frame, seated. I'm 5'10 and it is set on its lowest possible seating. Also got it from halfords as recommended size for my height. I am pretty sure 26" here refers to the wheels circumference and not the frame height.
The last bike i bought in Halfords needed everything tightened up...brakes and the headnut, worth checking over before use.
Don't you also get some kind of Halfrauds discount if you join the "Fat Boys Bicycle Club" (aka UK Cycling or something similar)?

Going by the image on their site they don't look very fat although other issues come to mind especially the lack of helmets. The patron is the Queen and the president is jon Snow (the newsreader?). None of them look like decent support if you got into a pub brawl.

Its a typo on Halfords part. That bike would suit from 4"10 up to a 6 footer. Its good enough for general use , not an expedition bike by any means.Having it put together and adjusted is worth £20.00 in itself.

That's over a foot of saddle height adjustment but I doubt the saddle post has that level of adjustment and the handlebar stem certainly won't. This is a standard double triangle type frame which would normally have multiple sizes of frame to cater for different heights but is offered in only one (mr average) frame size. Halfords say 5ft 9" - 6ft 1" and to be honest that seems correct for a 19" frame so the rider has a good fit. That's a 4" height range which looks to be replicated by the saddle post height adjustment. Halfords do other bikes in a range of frame sizes but not this one apart from a child's 20" wheel version. You might be able to stretch it to 6' 2" at a push maybe 6' 3" even for a less ideal fit but you can't normally go lower unless you like riding without a saddle with your testicles either side of the top tube.
