Can’t moan for the price, Considering it has got hydraulic brakes. It is very heavy though at 20kg.

Agreed. Pretty decent price for the bike.
Not much of a description on parts... 20kg is mad heavy though, even for a cheap bike.
20kg !! surely can't be right ?, ok it'll be heavy but 20 kg !

Agreed. 20 kg does sound like a typo
Also it's £250 at winstanley hikes on an 18" frame, which would be about a medium, the argos is a 20 which is a large.

No chance of that, normally would be 12-14 I'd say on a budget hardtail, it is an alu frame.

For a bike I'd rather go with winstanley, theyre a decently sized bike vendor. And the difference between an 18" & 20" frame is pretty big.

Personally I'd go for something like the carrera vulcan for a £300 bike. They're decently made and tend to have higher spec parts.
More argos clickbait. No stock anywhere for delivery.

I'm a bike guy... Thing about bike guys is we probably spend more time reading, searching, and talking about bikes than we do on them.
It's kinda sad really.
I don't think it's a great deal, about average
You can get this halfords.com/cyc…mes with British Cycling discount and a bit of quidco, tcb, or zeek vouchers for about the same price...marginally better I'd say.
However, £260 buys you a great 2nd hand hardtail, way better than any of this stuff

Appreciate. Never said it’s the best bike out there. However, at this price, the bike stood a chance for me.
So I have read the spec and it says alloy frame nothing about aluminium. 20 kg weight is correct.
I am quite sure An alloy is a mixture of two elements, one of which is a metal, and judging from this bike. metal smoke and mirrors.
