I can definately recommend the Reba forks very lightweight and the 120mm make a difference over the bog standard 100mm recon silver/ gold, if you want the best then the SID rockshox should do it

Give me a light weight and simple hard tail any day, besides climbing is a challenge to be enjoyed and a great sense of achievement when the going is tough and rewarded by a nice descent.


Something like this, probably not as much as weight as a proper Down Hill bike.
I really like my KTM144XC motorcycle going down hill - it's certainly not as agile as a mountain bike, but will certainly get down faster and for me more enjoyably than a hard tail.

(Yes, I have had decent spec hardtails.)

I enjoy the descents much more than basic pedalling on a climb.
I'd prefer to get my general exercise pedalling by cycling to the shops for my shopping - and save my energy at a trail centre for fun bits.

Waste of money a £3k car. Have a car worth £200 that gets me to work or anyware else. Its mine and does what it supposed to do, done 179,000 MILES . So I chose to spend my spare cash on a sport I love. Just need a little help to get back to the top. Its a hot deal for those in the market to buy a e mountain bike compared to the price earlier this year.

I'm always an 8 so ordered 8/42 - too short! Nice shoes though so I've now ordered a pair of 43s, fingers crossed.

Edit: just received the 43s and still too small! Wondering whether to risk 44s or give up.

Decathlon is a decent bike but there has been a recent frame recall on …Decathlon is a decent bike but there has been a recent frame recall on that Rockrider but it only effected the larger frames. I personally don't rate Btwin frames they seem to be designed more for lightness than strength and that is borne out by the recall and lack of reinforcing on the frame but if you are a shorter lighter rider it looks a fine option with good components for the money. Check out the uk reviews on the Decathlon site though for some perspective. Some people seemed to have had a lot of issues but that seems to be more about poor assembly by Decathlon stores rather than the bike itself. The sad fact is its luck of the draw when it comes to having a bike well assembled by a store you bought it from, most are good but not all.I'd also check out the halfords range of Carrera and Voodoo bikes some are fantastic bikes at great prices and halfords are always doing offers to bring those prices down.

I understand pumps can be cheaper but like anything it's worth investing in a known brand sometimes, this is a lower end pump but still more likely to last then a cheap one from other stores.

£9.99 for a floor pump, hand pump and puncture repair kit at B&M.

Yep my son broke the Aldi one within a month, still the tube came in handy for my ghetto tubeless pump. Edinburgh cycles always have these in their sale for a tenner. Mine is still going strong after 10+ years. The Aldi bike tool is poor too the chain breaker broke first use.

Rutland cycles - although I find the occasional bargain on their website, It has to be one of the most slowest poorly constructed websites I have ever seen.. it is truly like banging your head against a brick wall trying to find anything. Just fired off an email of complaint having been taken in a circle to nowhere when trying to get a list of their sale items and search from lowest price onwards.. For such a big company it really is useless!

Thanks Hot bought. Not assembled from eBay. Worth extra tenner imo assembled

SAVE10 for £10 off - £129.00 (or like others have mentioned by via their eBay store for £119.99)

I have got a city style bike, although it is electric. This style is great for people with bad backs because your back remains fairly straight whilst riding with all the work being done through the legs.

I'm sure all their bike inspectors have been given the same cytech training and at the time we able to display competency, trouble is it's experience and trial and error which is required. Just because someone is given 16 hours of training, we can't expect them to be experts. If there is a problem over halfords being "Professionals" it will be individuals who haven't been given the support they still require from their management team, it will be a lack of follow up and a secondary inspection by an experience bike inspector before a bike is handed over assembled to it's owner... Rant over... Sorry.


My experience of buying a bike at Halfords was fantastic and others have mentioned positive experience but there are horror stories too. The same can be said of just about any bicycle retailer and people's experience with local bike shops. Personally I think Halfords are a great place to buy a bike. Often fantastic value bikes especially if you wait until a promotion and you get the free build and check plus a 6 weeks service even if you only paid £80 for the bike.

​Just in case you aren't joking, they don't come with pedals as riders are likely to have a preference for Shimano, look, time, etc pedals. These all have different cleats that fit to your shoes. If it came with one brand and you used another you'd be paying for something you wouldn't use. Some bikes do come with cheap plastic pedals to get you home, but that's a waste really as they'll get binned afterwards.

How fast can you ride on single speed bike?


I usually record all my bike rides on strava. It all depends on the gearing. My boardman is a 48t with a 16t freewheel and I have averaged 18 mph on a 20 mile cycle ride. I think the most you can go is about 22 mph in my gearing before you just spin out, going down hill I have got to 40 mph but not cycling at that speed. Because you don't have gears though it means less maintaince and less weight. I went up portsdown hill which is pretty steep on my single speed with a guy on a giant geared bike in front and he was shocked that I kept up behind him going up hill but I explained because I have less weight and also I'm not thinking about gears as I have none I am more focused on getting up the hill (plus my legs are stronger). On single speed you will train better and become stronger because you have no gears, it's not a bad thing. You can spend a long time adjusting a geared bike so a single speed saves time. Personally I choose single speed over a geared bike for this sort of price because you will get a better and lighter frame. If you want to spend £1000+ on a bike you will go faster than me but I only paid £300 for myou boardman with carbon forks and aluminum frame. For £300 you will get a steel piece of s**t from halfords that weighs a ton in comparison. Honestly unless you live in a very hilly area you probably don't need gears. Just ask yourself one question "do you ride around in one gear 99% of the time" if the answer is yes get a single speed like this one. I can't vouch for this bike but I wanted to give a my input as I do ride a bike like this.

Edited by: "sotomonkey" 28th May

Good price, great bags. I have the back roller classics and a friend has these, both types have been great, look almost as good as new after 18 months of daily use and nothing ever gets wet.

Banned

After looking on the Ortlieb website however, these models do not get supplier with them.

These are excellent. The build is really good and will keep anything in there dry. I also quite like that you can get spare parts from Ortlieb in case something breaks.

Yes, this is a good price and the build quality is excellent, but do note that these are the *city* bags, not the *classic* bags. The most important differences IMO being

- Classic bag has a different mechanism to close it, over the top, whereas these ones get clipped on the sides after rolling. In practice, this means that its much easier to close the classic bag when its full/overfilled, whereas its much harder with the city bag
- Classic bag comes with shoulder straps

I'm happy with my city bags, but I was buying again, I'd pay extra for the classic ones just because I've ended up using them much more than I thought I would, they're that good

But that aside, weight penalty of wider tyres is a fact. Cannot be disputed as such. It may be outweighed by other benefits such as improved traction, cushioning etc. Which is why I tend to stick to 28mm and as wide a rim as I can get away with.

I think I got it all set up properly but it doesn't track anything.



I suspect the problem relates to the gap between the sensor on the fork and the magnet on the wheel. If you adjust it so that the two brush against each other and then gradually increase the gap you should find the correct position.

what's wrong with it??

But , the big question is ..... is it worth £8 ?



Not directly comparable but how the hell can they sell these for that much?

Another one with a larger display but still wired.

This one definitely seems good for £7.99 for those who got it but personally I don't need cadence but would need a backlight so would probably look elsewhere anyway.

Because black is the most stylish colour according to many. In fact, in the early days of time trialling, riders had to wear black in order to be inconspicuous and not draw attention as TT's were seen as races and therefore illegal on open roads (hence the code names for modern TT courses).

But yeh, style over safety. Though it isn't all that bad on brighter days.
