Found 9th Oct 2014
I recently bought two of these bikes and posted on HUKD - excellent bikes and superb value at £199.99 (see link below). Just noticed that they have further reduced the 15" (small) gents by another £30 and they have a 21" (ex-large) ladies for £179.99, presumably because those sizes are less popular.

They still have some of the more popular sizes at £199.99 too.

Check my original post here for more details and member comments (not sure why it's expired):

Note: I see they have indicated on the site that their dispatch times are longer than normal so if you order you may need to be patient! Mine took just over a week but if you phone them I think you'll find them helpful and presume they can advise on current timings.

Looks like they've folded or something as their website is no longer online and no longer on google searches.

Yes, I found that but wondered if they either had a website fault or took it down as they were getting behind with orders (think they have been overwhelmed recently).

This is their number if you want to try calling: 01422 344602

Thanks!

The website is now up and running!

It was a domain error that knocked the site offline since Friday.

The downtime has given us time to catch up, employ more staff and get through the orders. Dispatch times are back down to the times quoted (1-5 day dispatch)

Thanks

Great for the business to respond!

Not sure if it's logical to assume a company has folded if you can't get to their website thought?

The 15" now reduced to 159.99. Can someone advice what the min max leg length for this size? Many thanks.

There's a guide on their site though, as is usually the case, it's based on overall height, not leg length. I have a 19" frame with leg length 31" and it seems about right though I know a 17" frame would also work with seat post nearer max. I would guess (it is only a guess) a 15" frame would ideally cover something like a 26"- 30" leg but please don't rely on this. Maybe try a 15" for size in your local bike shop? Bear in mind this bike has a 700c wheel (ie larger diameter than 26" 'standard' wheel) and this will make a small difference to fit.
