Voodoo Nakisi Adventure Bike £440 @ Halfords

Found 8th FebEdited by:"MilkTheFrog"
Reduced from £550, oddly it's currently £10 less than the lower specced Limba. You can effectively get a further £21 off by getting a £23 British Cycling membership for 10% off, which would effectively bring it to £419. Don't forget about cycle to work schemes if you have access.

Three sizes, 52, 54.5 and 57cm. Seems like the cheapest new adventure/cross bike you can get (with disc brakes), and nice spec with the Sora R3000. Great all rounders/commuters.

Key specs:

Approximate Weight: 12.2kg
Forks: Alloy blades with chromoly steerer
Frame Material: Alloy
Gear Shifters: Shimano Sora R3000 2x9
Cassette: Shimano 9 speed, 11-34t
Chainset: Prowheel, 48/32t
Brakes: Tektro Lyra, 160mm rotor
Wheels: 32 spoke double wall rims w/ loose bearing hubs
Tyres: Vee Rubber Speedster 700x40c

This is a very bad cycling market culture we have here. None of these are properly roadworthy until they have mudguards and a rear carrier. I will never understand the decisions that go behind this. 220 miles from here on the continent they can't move any of these "commuters" without these fittings!

Who am I kidding. It's all about bottom lines here.

Lol say what .... Extras: Eye-popping reflective camo paintwork and full mounts for mudguards and racks

That saddle looks like it would seriously chaff the undercarriage.

Reading the post again, perhaps he means that they don't have racks/guards already fitted. Which is a valid point on a commuter but this isn't just a commuting bike. I remove my guards if going off road as while I'll get muddied I won't get mud clogged guards or a stick jamming the wheel in them.

Ah you could be right, I won’t mention I didn’t even get pedals with mine
Looks a nice bike but what is an adventure bike is that gravel or cyclocross or something new again. Confusing.

Yeah, its a gravel bike, but we don't have miles of unending gravel roads like the USA so that doesn't make much sense.

Yeah the nomenclature around this gets pretty ridiculous, but adventure/gravel bikes tend to be to cyclocross bikes what endurance/sportif road bikes are to an aggressive aero/race bike. Most of the speed, a lot more comfort.

Saddle looks perfect to me

It’s basically a gravel bike, but there’s quite a bit of difference between cyclocross and gravel but basically gravel is less aggressive for longer days in the saddle, cyclocross is considered a racing discipline really
this bike look pretty cool, much better than older limba. 18 gears and nice colour grey + orange looks awesome. Small size recommended to 175cm height. Heat

Brother bought one today with my British cycling card. Discount. I was most impressed with the build quality for the money. Will make a great commuter bike.
