It is a great price, heat added

Why does it say it has 360 degree gyro frame and the picture does not show this? It also says v brakes and I can't recall seeing those used with a gyro set up. Anyone care to explain?

No.

Whilkst this was at £129.99 briefly, it;s mainly been on sale through the year at £65. False savings and a poor bicycle.

It's not 360, not sure why it says so. My son has it. I paid £65 and got a £5 voucher.

would this be suitable for a 10 year old boy who is around 5ft tall? I've tried to Google but so many conflicting answers?

A bit young to be into weightlifting?

My son is 9 and 4"6 and has the seat in the lowest position.

Can take that off some sweet jumps

It's because this is selling at it;s RRP. Argos briefly increased the price to £129.99 so they can claim it is now half price. Argos do this a lot. Last year they did it with a £400 laptop. They increased the price to £1200 for a short period, then crashed it down to the correct RRP with a big savings marker to boost sales. It is legal to do this, but a dirty tactic used to manipulate the buyer. I had reported them but was informed that they're manipulating the law and there is nothing that could be done. Tesco also do with with cheap wine. Selling £5 wine for £8 a bottle then claiming a price reduction. The tactic is becoming well worn sadly.

as above. I bought my lad a bike from Halfords for Christmas. Listed at a fair price of £179.99 (I got another 10% off using a discount code and a further 10% with BC Membership which is a real bargain). The cheeky sods now list the bike with a RRP of £359.99 with 50% off. Utterly ridiculous, and in my eyes its deceitful and a cheap trick. Argos are really bad at it (always scroll to the bottom of the page and they often give a previous "sale" price).

So this bike isn't really a deal. Spend a bit more if you can afford to, your kids may get to enjoy riding it.
