Terrain Atlas 24" Dual Suspension Mountain Bike Catalogue Number: 462-6664
Was 85, then 70 and now 60... believe it's a good price still for a decent bike for young boys ( 8 -11 yrs old)!

very very heavy and poor components but I had one for my son which worked for a year then moved to a better bike. at the rate my kids are growing I could not afford to buy quality knowing they would out grow it very quickly.

Why not buy an Isla Bike for around £300 and sell it on ebay for ~£250 - would work out cheaper in the long run, and you kid would have a decent bike!

Or if they are larger, then the likes of Giant, Specialised, etc all do decent bikes which hold their price well.

Buying a crap piece of metal like the bike above will do nothing to get your kids riding their bikes more, nor save you any money in the long run ... it will drop/rust to pieces

Far better to buy a decent bike they will ride, than a cheap one that will just sit in the garage.

I hear what your saying and agree to a point, but my experience was not quite as bad as your describing. He had it for a year and it never rusted, nothing actually failed/broke and he used it extensively. My beef was the fact it was so heavy and I felt it would not last particularly long.

Yes, absolutely and in every way I think that is probably the best way to go, and with the benefit of hindsight I would have gone that way. My comment was purely regarding the OPs post and my experience with this `bike`. These bikes do what they say on the tin but a good quality s/h would probably serve you much better.

Surprised no comments posted yet from the bike snobs about buying something for £3000 instead LOL

If you are in the market for a cheap bike then you should stay well away from anything with suspension, especially full suspension like this.

Yes it'll be heavy and yes the components will be the cheapest but what do you expect for £60?
Gets very good reviews too.


I got my daughter a cheap dual suspension mountain bike 2 or 3 years back and it's still going strong. Apart from the grip shift failing (£8 for a new one from ebay) and a squeaky from brake it's been faultless. If she gets another year or so out of it I'll be happy and will happily buy her the next size up. These bikes aren't brilliant but they serve a purpose.

bike is £85 ?

Bought a Trek MT60 for my son. £85 2nd hand from eBay. It was like new and I expect to get most of that back when I sell it on in a few years.
BSO are a waste of time.

85 Now can someone expire this
