looks good how do I know it will fit? is it as good as the garneau edge?
Excellent price for a cracking helmet
Know the owner of the shop - good guy. Heat!
Hey not at all. It's just the power of the internet sometimes. All the best Dave
That was probably my fault for posting!
Hey everybody, Apologies for all the cancelled and refunded orders. When we put the last couple of these on clearance the last thing we expected was nearly 30 orders to come through in the space of 20 minutes. As soon as I realised what was happening I started emailing, cancelling and refunding all the ones that can't be fulfilled. Again sorry to those who missed out on the deal. Best Wishes Dave Singletrack Bikes
I just received a refund from PayPal also, oh well looks like a good deal lost...!
Very good value!
Finally arrived after 3 weeks whilst I was on holiday (had it sent to my dads) unfortunately he was on holiday when I got back and I've only just seen it. Good bike - woeful service. No reply to any e-mail - finally got through by ringing 9 times in a row and hanging up as soon as the recorded message kicked in (no answer phone - just ring back message). The owner promised to confirm by e-mail the expected delivery date he told me on the phone. Guess what no e-mail. now back up to £127.99
Thinking of buying Any updates please?
Thanks Mincer for letting us know. Please keep us updated on how you get on.
Begining to regret buying this - ordered same day as posted, delivery quoted as 2-5 days but still no sign of it arriving. No answer to e-mail and phone is either engaged or goes to answerphone. I've googled reviews of singletrack bikes to find some less then flattering results. Seems to be a one man band - If it's in stock it seems you might be OK, but consensus is if it's shipping direct from supplier (all items with 2-5 days deliv. - according to their website) then watch out. I'll report back if and when it arrives, but I might be looking at a chargeback on my card if I don't get a response soon.
Thanks Monster. Don't want to make the same mistake as with my two older boys. Went for bargain priced bikes but they where so heavy, rusted quickly and had problems with brakes etc.

Kona Fire mountain 2010 mountainbike: http://www.singletrackbikes.co.uk/product/4690/Kona_Fire_Mountain_2010 £252 (but only 14" and 22" frames) (RRP: £400)
We went last week, spent £100 got some shades reduced from £40 to £5, there are some really nice clothes in there !
Cool shop, did you go when they were doing buy one get one free at the end of August? I could've bought the whole shop (and nearly did), and easily earnt my free towel. Luckily I live an hours drive away so it's not tempting to visit too often!!

Bingo. The length of the bike is harder to change so it actually the critical dimension when sizing a bike. Also, don't forget that ladies' proportions are typically different from blokes - they have longer legs and shorter torsos. Consequently some brands now do womens specific bikes (not to be confused with 'ladies frame' step through bikes) which are shorter overall than the gents' equivalent in the same size. It's not necessarily too big, more likely the wrong shape bike for her (I have often been surprised by how much of a 5'3" lady is made up of legs!). She may have needed the medium to get her leg extension correct, but my guess is that she's now overstretched on it (Giants are quite long, anyway). Try a womens specific model in a similar size, or something shorter generally, like Trek's 4000 series. A final note on the 2009/2010 argument further up the thread - regardless of snobbery etc., many manufacturers have increased the RRPs but actually down-specced their bikes for 2010. In other words, if you find the bike you like in the right size, the 09 will usually be the better deal. Remember though, it's not a bargain if it doesn't fit!
Got a voucher code for the website as well making the above deals even HOTTER! Type helmethead at the checkout for another 5% off.
Has anyone weighted the bike? Thanks
The Focus is a good one, quite similar in components and quality. I believe the Kona has better value for money, given the 35 £ difference.
Which is better?
