Yes, it'll be heavy (though 15kg isn't ridiculous) and it won't be much good in the Tour de France but if you're after a simple, cheap bike and can do some basic assembly and setup this will be much better than your average supermarked BSO with pointless suspension, etc. You also have Halfords to complain to if necessary with a better chance of being understood and helped.

Personally I'd spend a little bit more on a simple bike but if this is all your budget will stretch to it's about as good as it gets.

Assembly costs extra so you'll need to do some basic stuff yourself (there's a helpful video on the link though it does seem to be a bit over the top for a very basic bike).

Free delivery.

Happy New Year!

I'm sure they'll Google the spec before they decide to pinch it.
Don't expect to be shifting gears on this. Absolutely terrible groupset. I'd switch it to a single speed!
Ningbo Power Industries derailleur. Sweeeeeet.
Seriously though, better than all the fake suspension tat that gets posted up here.

If I was after an £80 bike I'd be on eBay, as summer comes to an end you'll get a pretty decent bike for this kind of money if you don't mind owning second hand.

Just type in mountain bike, select used then men's & see what pops up near to you.

For example, this bloke us selling a "pine" mountain bike... It is in fact a "Marin" so will be a good build quality with half decent components. He wants £90 or offers so could be yours much less than the deal

​I personally am not completely sure however I presume there are many videos etc online
Horizontal dropouts is probably one of the most important criteria :))
