This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Was looking for a budget bike for my lad and this seems fairly decent for the money when comparing it to the Apollo Phaze in Halfords or Btwin RockRider at Decathalon which are similar prices.

Only downside I can see compared to the other 2 bikes is this only has 7 gears but doubt he would use 18 or 21 gears just riding to the park etc.

  • Schwinn geometry helps achieve a comfortable fit, offering CONTROL and STABILITY for all riders
  • 17" 6061 Aluminium frame - 26" Alloy Double Wall Rims
  • 7 speed rotational shifter for easy gear changes
  • Schwinn FS26 Suspension forks offer support and comfort up front
  • Cable actuated disc brakes front and rear give extra rider confidence
  • Frame features - Side stand bracket mount, Rear mudguard & rack mounts and Down tube bottle cage mounts
  • Simple final assembly required with video in Schwinn brand store.

Thanks for the advice. Which Carrera would you recommend?
Ooh.. a cheap Bike Deal!!

*getting the popcorn out*
The reviews on amazon are all from people who got the bike for free... says a lot really. Probably worth the money for a beginner but don't expect it to be the best bike in the world.

On another note, I don't see the point in the Amazon vine program, the reviews are worthless as soon as you know they got it for free. They could just lower the price for the first 50 customers.

This isn't really a mountain bike it is more mountain bike style. The components are pretty much all light duty and would soon be destroyed off road. Does he really need a mountain bike? There has been some offers for Carrera Axle/Parva's recently on here. They would be low maintenance and stronger plus much more efficient for road cycling as well being more capable off road than this bike even though they aren't mountain bikes.
You'd do well to look at these Vitus bikes that seem to get endless comparisons to Islabikes:

Schwinn were once good bikes. Then they got into money troubles and got bought out circa 2001 and turned Schwitt.

They are owned by Dorel I believe the big Canadian importer that owns brands like Cannondale and many others. While Cannondale get some R&D for higher end models at least they seem to treat Schwinn like garbage using it for walmart bikes and low end bikes in general. I was in Bristol on Wednesday and looked in both Cycle Republic and Evans stores there and say some Cannondale bikes they seemed like £250 overpriced for what you were getting in frame and component terms for their entry level bikes. I'd always recommend focusing on the actual product than the brand. Many brands are just importers now and they juggle different factories. This Schwinn bike is poor based on its components another Schwinn could be good value the brand means nothing basically.

Yeah that clearly states Dorel Industries. I know they had a rich history before that and some important historic models before they were part of Dorel/Pacific. Used to watch bikemanforu on youtube until he was pretty much forced out of bicycle retailing and now farms oysters. He showed a lot of Schwinn bikes that had been bought in for repair and servicing.

I think Vine worked well originally as the reviewers seemed to offer good detailed reviews but more recently I've found them mostly worthless and usually ignore them.

This bike though I'd say is too cheap as it's using poor quality unbranded parts with a limited gear range, there's not really anything better brand new for this price but bikes like these are often a poor buy as they end up not lasting very long. Although the Halfords Carrera are a good bit more than this they're using much better parts and a decent bike overall that can be easily maintained and with good options to upgrade. If the budget is tight I'd look at buying second hand as many people buy bikes with the intention of doing a lot of riding then never do plus the lower end Shimano/Sram parts are usually pretty durable so any repair work is usually just a bit of adjustment.

Agree, the vine program should be changed so the reviews are monitored and if not good enough they have to return the product. The best thing about this bike on paper is the light frame but as you said a second hand bike could be the way to go for a better quality bike.
