Nice looking bike
have some heat

Is this cycle related to the galaxy s2?

I would want a car for that price lol

Good price for a decent entry level Full Suss. Heat!

Sorry, no HDMI, not for me!

Left hand drive cold from me.

Anyone already got one of these?

No foot pedals, cold.

The morons are out in force again. Good bike for the money

Would be better if it didnt have Suntour forks on it! Not a fan or those! The shifters ect ( Sram x5) are also lower end, would prefer the x7 upwards. Good price all the same for a full sus bike.

heat added decent entry level full sus for the money, but only if you need full sus, youd get a lot more bike for your money with a hardtail

You're better off getting a hardtail at this price point.

Use HAPPY12 code and get it for £550. Good price for bike, shame there are no larger sizes.

If £562 was the RRP I would agree with you, but this is a £1020 bike. In my experience once you get above £800-£900 (RRP) full suspension bikes start to get good.

And it was over priced at that original price, carrera banshee retails at £550 and is similarly specced (x4 against x5 both equally poor)
The rear shock is pretty crap unless you enjoy the feeling of being stuck in treacle whilst pedaling.

Yes, a bike with an inflated RRP designed to be sold at knockdown prices to dupe people into thinking they're getting a bargain. It's just a marketing tactic,

That said, this bike would be a world away from the BSOs sold in supermarkets, but at the end of the day it's still an entry level bike with with crap forks, crap shock, crap brakes. The only saving grace I can see is that, if it's accurate, the quoted weight is actually a fair bit less than I'd expect for a bike of this price point (my full suss'er is only about three kilo less).

My advice to anyone spending this little on a bike would be exactly the same - do some research and buy a hardtail instead.

Not a bad bike, but not a good bike. For the price is a decent enough full suspension bike, but the RRP should be nearer £700.
Personally I would much rather go for a hardtail at a similar price. This bike is all compromises, whereas a hardtail could be decent at this price.

Cheap full sus = spend more time Going up and down when pedalling than going forwards. No ta.

Too many compromises to make this offer inviting.

yeah gotta echo the last few posts above say no to this one sorry...
spec just not good enough.. it's hard to see point of this bike, if you're new get a hardtail or 2nd hand full sus (or even better a 2nd hand hardtail) after talking to someone who knows what they're doing, about what you want to ride.
if you're not new, you likely won't be happy with this.

funny how the first half of replies here are useless, then the 2nd half above me all do have a clue... it's like some people think before they post, and others just post.

For the money you could get a light and good hardtail. Wouldn't bother for this price, I never really understood what cheap full suspention bikes are good for.

Poor bike. £1020 rrp for this unbranded heap with rubbish equipment, you must be joking. Very cold.

As a previous poster stated, get a decent hardtail for similar money and way better spec.

If you're buying this Sunn thing, you won't be needing full sus anyway.

Yeah I've already posted the Caldera

hotukdeals.com/dea…ead

To be fair with kona you are paying a premium for the name and frame you can get much better spec at £500

Deacthlon

If you only want to spend £500 on a bike you arent really going to be doing anything that requires more bike than what this offers.

If you can ignore the horrible paint and graphics
Edited by: "upperdecker1" 19th Feb 2012

yet the heat still rises!

really shows something wrong with HUKD imho, but then the bottom line is this site benefits more from click throughs than long term satisfaction of buyers..

perhaps the comments need a digg/reddit style voting system, and not just this silly "likes" system. this also goes back to my previous point.. HUKD, because fo the way it makes money, "wants" everything to be hot!

CAVEAT EMPTOR.

To add something positive: CRC is a great site, you can get nearly always get £10-£12 off with vouchers (currently "HAPPY12") over £75 and Quidco usually pays out too.

Yea its a real shame, the previous years version looked fine but then the designers must of got really high one night and settled on that design which is just a huge turn off from a solid specced bike.
Guess you cant have everything for cheap

Its not like you are going to be looking down at the frame whilst riding but you know everyone will be looking at you laughing thinking look at this guy on his toys r us special bike!

^ not sure what you mean, it looks like any other hardtail.
check out the halfords boardman range for good value MTBs (i assume they're still going?)

sold out, expired. anyone who bought one do come back and let is know if it's any good (not sarcasm, i'm curious what those shocks are like).
