Many of the bikes are terrible at the lower pricing but some very good deals in there.

My top choices would be;


sportsdirect.com/vik…311

2907226.jpg
Pretty much same as above but 29" wheels

sportsdirect.com/rad…203

2907226.jpg
Looks decent spec, a lot of bike for the money. At £375 that will be about £300 plus £5 postage after the discount.

sportsdirect.com/mud…046

2907226.jpg
Looks great value

sportsdirect.com/mud…944

2907226.jpg
Hi-spec carbon bike for about £560!

sportsdirect.com/mud…048

2907226.jpg
Great introductory race bike with 16 speed drivetrain

Save more by going through topcashback to zeek and use a code on the zeek site to purchase sports direct vouchers if you can. Just make sure the bike you want doesn't go out of stock in the meantime.

Many other bikes there but be warned the entry level stuff is best avoided. Definitely avoid any of their low end dual suspension bikes.

These are generic asian bikes no different to many sold under other brands. However sports direct will not be able to provide any support, they are box shifters so you need to be reasonably competent mechanically just to give them a bit of a check and do any final adjustments.

This seems to be 20% off everything using the App, not just bikes. I did have some trainers and t-shirts in the basket. Looks like a good time to download the app and order.....

Thanks for the heads up. I'll give you heat for that.

Though looking through the bikes, its not the best of choice, as its Muddyfox. They are not the brand they used to be.
Yes I realise its 20% off everything but wanted to focus on the bike deals. Muddyfox is just a brand slap. They slap it on both terrible and good quality bikes. I have only selected the higher quality bikes with decent components. There are quite a few others worth considering but I felt these were the best deals skimming through. They do what looks like reasonable mountain bikes on first impression but in the detail you can see freewheels and much worse front shocks etc which to be honest is the same as other brands.

If you are looking to buy a derailleur equipped bike I would look for a minimum 8 speed cogset on the rear which should help avoid getting a freewheel equipped bike. I.e. 8 speed cogset could be a 16 or 24 speed bike, avoid 7,14 and 21 geared bikes. Saying that while a freewheel isn't acceptable on a real mountain bike its passable/acceptable on a road bike I guess.
Carbon Muddyfox for £560 is a great price spec wise, full Tiagra, although I don't think it's the latest version of that (prob 2016?)

As mentioned, not a brand to be see with down at the Peleton Cafe if that sort of thing bothers you. You could of course get some of these to stick over the Muddyfox logos

Yes I put that in the list above great deal. If you make use of zeek sports direct vouchers etc you can probably get it comfortably under £300 and you don't have to put up with the muddyfox branding either. Appears to be a Taiwan manufactured frame with assembly in the UK so may actually arrive well adjusted unlike some of the muddyfox bikes. Some great components for the money.

Both are made in China even possibly the same factory so if they can slap their brand on a chinese import why can't we as end consumers? Personally all these European brands on what are chinese products just seems a farce to me. I'd be happy just to remove all branding and let the brand snobs try and work it out, might give them hours of free entertainment.

Yep, agree. I'm still happy with my 'forum bargain carbon road bike of choice from a few years back' the classic Ventura CP 50. At £320 at the time, it still rides great, despite getting a few puzzled looks from the local Bianchi/Colnago boys on my routes
Bianchi are definitely made in the same factory as some Muddyfox models, the frames are at least anyway. You only have to watch this video to see both Bianchi and Dunlop mentioned and previously Sports Direct had many of their bikes Dunlop branded and Dunlop is a famous brand across the world. Muddyfox sadly isn't worth mentioning in the advert but you can clearly see on the fuji-ta site many of the muddyfox frames are fuji-ta.

It's quite funny when you read some reviews of italian bikes and they go on about the spirit of italian cycling and other romantic notions and you can feel it in the bike etc and then you read about a german branded bike and they go on about engineering excellence and so forth and its the same Chinese bike with a different brand slap.
This seems a good place to ask - any decent bikes for a 10-year old girl ?

If you aren't mechanically inclined I would recommend Halfords where you can take her in and she can try out the bikes plus if you purchase they will set it up for you and also do another 6 week service. They are also very reasonably priced. However bear in mind children outgrow their bikes so the secondhand market is thriving with many bargains. Shpock, Gumtree, Ebay and even freecycle often have children's bikes for low or no money. If there is someone mechanically inclined them certainly its worth considering some of the bikes on offer here but I would avoid any bikes with suspension. Keeping the bike simple pays dividends with regards reliability and usability.

I don't entirely disagree but to reference Bianchi is unfair. Their bikes might be made in the Far East but they certainly aren't generic frames that can be found with different branding.
I'm looking for a bike for my wife that I can convert to an ebike; is anything like the Viking Belgravia worth getting, or should I stick with a better brand?

Actually, I've had a look round and the women's bikes can be found with a higher spec and cheaper elsewhere.

Great bargain. I have bought a cheap road bike on hotukdeals it was the Claris equipped Vertigo Carnaby which I think I paid about £62 for after cashback etc. Decent freehub equipped bike. I'm too heavy for carbon.

Is it cost effectively to convert? The Belgravia does have dynamo lighting which I guess you could easily convert to make use of a battery pack if you remove the front wheel with dynamo hub and replace with a hub motor wheel. The dynamo hub wheel would probably fetch reasonable money s/hand on ebay in fact if you never used it you could sell it as new. It has a built in rack to take the battery pack. The issue with Viking bikes is sometimes poor assembly same as most Avocet bikes but you sound pretty competent so I'm sure you can adjust the brakes and add a bit of grease etc. I mean its going to be at most £173 for a bike with hub gears and a dynamo hub, less if you make use of zeek, topcashback etc. Unbelievable value really and actually looks very nice.

Well fuji-ta definitely makes Bianchi bikes as they clearly state it on that video. What percentage are made by them and whether they buy off the shelf frames or frames to their own design is another matter. The typical way it's done is low end product is generic frames, mid level may still be generic or custom and then high end may be the actual bikes still manufactured by the company itself. This is only a general view. The thing is most bike manufacturer's will claim a frame is to their own design even when it isn't because they have to add perceived value to the product. Fuji-ta will make minor alterations to generic frames anyway, extra reinforcing etc so even a generic frame can look different with a few geometry variations and use of different tubing etc. It's highly likely most of the design of the frame is by fuji-ta with only input from Bianchi. Only fuji-ta will know their manufacturing processes etc. I know many big brands by off the shelf frames (cheaper than custom designs) but claim they are to their own design. Prototyping and testing frames costs big money and they will need to be certified which is again big money or they can buy a tried and tested frame with existing certification at a much lower cost. A tried and tested frame from fuji-ta's portfolio also has a known quality and strength it can not only be cheaper to buy but also a safer choice. After years of manufacture they learn where a frame fails and improve it, their own frame designs evolve. New frame designs are more of an unknown. I'm just making the point that a new frame design isn't always better anyway and you may have to pay much more money for it too.

My wife is disabled and unable to pedal and an off the shelf ebike is limited to about 5mph on electric power itself. If you convert a normal bike, then you're allowed up to 15mph, electric only, so it's really the only way for us to go, it's just trying to find a decent bike at a good price to then convert.

The Viking bikes, or certainly the women's bikes, can be bought in higher spec from places like Winstanley's for around the Sports Direct discounted price, or so it seems. It's difficult to make a direct comparison as Sports Direct give so little detail, but the Winstanley's bikes look to have better gears.

Couldn't you just buy a normal e-bike and alter it to work without pedalling? Would seem easier than fitting a motor etc to a normal bike. Isn't there a pedal sensor that you can cough just unplug and that's it. A 5 minute job. Carrera Crosscity is very good value.

Sorry, but thats complete conjecture on tour part. It's common knowledge Bianchi get their bikes made overseas but to say that Fuji do all the hard work and bianchi choose the colours is guesswork on your part.

Can you point me out a Bianchi and an identical bike with different branding?

Possibly, though my wife's a bit fussy over the look of the bike and prices soon climb. Also, it can be easier to tailor a system by converting and there are some good deals on motors and systems at places like Indiegogo. A bike built to be pedalled may not have a throttle, so disconnecting the pedal sensor may get rid of your only way of getting the motor to kick in.

You seem to be strangely defensive, clearly I never said they just choose the colours but I have done some research into fuji-ta and how they operate as they are quite an interesting company being the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world with likely over 15 million complete bikes made per year and a huge OEM frame business that supplies frames to the Far East, Europe and America's.

The points I made are clear in the other reply I suggest you read them again. Surely it is you that has to make the case that Bianchi frames are somehow only made by fuji-ta to Bianchi's designs which seems completely baseless and without any evidence to support it.

33416014-BnpAx.jpg
Unfortunately I couldn't find identical frames and the top frame is small compared to the large Bianchi frame below but you can see much of the same fuji-ta design choices in the top frame repeated in the bottom frame. A thickened downtube to cope with the heavier weight of a taller rider with the Bianchi. If the frames were actually the same size the similarities would be greater I'm sure.

It operates like the cranks are being operated permanently I believe so on the little handlebar box that has lets say off and 3 assistance levels you use those. Brakes disable the motor. I think people would do a throttle conversion normally for more smooth operation and ease of riding.

Definitely worth a look, though, for example, the Pendleton Somerby ebike is £750, whereas I can currently do a conversion from the normal Pendleton Somerby for £500. I accept that the ebike may have an upgraded frame and parts but the bike is only ever going to be ridden gently. A conversion with a front hub motor using the Swytch system that's currently $369 with a throttle, on Indiegogo, should be fairly straightforward.

So you've picked two bikes that share a passing resemblance by virtue of both being road racing bikes. You can see, even on these small lo-res images, that the downtube/ headtube junctions are different along with the seat tube/top tube junctions.

I'm not sure how you can say the onus is on me to prove that Bianchi haven't an exclusive design when the best you've put forward is that a factory is a sub contractor for a variety of firms and two pictures of bikes that aren't actually very similar.

It's easy to say you can get X for half the price with a different badge but difficult to prove it.

You seem to be working hard to deceive yourself but I don't know your motive for doing that. Perhaps you are a owner of an italian premium bike or bike dealer or something. So the fact the company clearly states they make Bianchi bikes and the frames look near identical is not evidence enough for you. Here is a Bianchi in a similar small frame size, not sure its quite the same size frame but at least it is one of the smaller sizes so a closer match. No doubt in your mind some magic bike frame pixies float down from the clouds and sprinkle some magic dust over these Chinese carbon frames to make them special Italian frames but I think the rest of us take a more realistic approach. The Bianchi is not an italian frame its pretty obvious its a brand slap whatever the price. Even if they tweak the geometry slightly or get some minor variation in the carbon mould for cosmetic reasons its a Chinese frame but it really doesn't look like they have done anything much different with the frame.

33417523-JbTtY.jpg
33417523-j5R7Y.jpg
I don't own an Italian bike, I don't sell bikes. I do like bikes and take an interest in them.
Of course the bianchi is made in the far East, they make no secret of it.
I'm not going to get drawn into the 'pixie dust' nonsense as I haven't said anything of the sort.
Can you actually look at what you are posting up?
The bottom bikes fork cuts into the head and down tube, the other tube external tube profiles are not the same. But hey, life's too short to keep banging on.
It's nice to see some hub gear bikes for reasonable prices. It always amazes me how they seem to be non-existent up to about the £1000 mark when you start seeing Nexus 8s. Much rather have a cheap hub than a cheap derailleur.

It's a no brainer at the price. It will be at least a 3 speed hub and you have the front hub dynamo if you get the bike in the picture. The original price is probably only 20-30% over real retail price but as you can see from the sports direct site they are truly useless at advertising bikes and that would likely cause people not to buy which has ended up with some serious discounting and for an hour or so more you can get a further 20% off.
Discount extended one day more. Until today midnight.

I had a problematic derailleur and upgraded to a hub gear. They are incredibly good for commuter bikes. You can be sat at the lights and switch from top to bottom gear. They need maintenance about once every thousand miles. They're nowhere near as light or as efficient as a derailleur mind you but hot damn it's nice just treating them like car gear boxes.
Looks like they have extended the offer but the maximum purchase is £200 which restricts most of these bikes. Still a few worth getting below £200.

When I put the £225 Road Bike into the checkout, it took the full £45 off. Haven't actually tried to put it through yet.

I know nothing about bikes and haven't recently owned one but have just taken a new job, which could, if I choose to, involve me doing a 9 mile each way cycle from South to Central London.

Thoughts on how much I should spend, if the £225 model here would do the job or whether I am better off trying to find a used or ex-display mode, which has a better brand name attached?
I personally don't think it's so much about the brand more about what you are actually getting in components. The Shimano 2300 groupset is pretty decent. Lots of very good brands do entry level road bikes worse than this Muddy Fox bike. For a sub £200 price you really can't go wrong. If you didn't like it you could probably remove the muddy fox stickers and sell it at a profit.

Yeah that's Tourney quality, low end with a freewheel I think. The bike does look nice in some areas but not worth buying in my opinion with that low end drivetrain. I'd definitely go with the more expensive bike its a very, very decent spec for the price. Looks like there is one sports direct gift card on the zeek site if you wanted to save more money. Don't forget to go through topcashback to zeek to buy it. It would save you a few more pounds.
