Bit of a niche corner this but hopefully somebody will benefit.

This economy fat bike with great reviews sold out quickly first time round in the summer and I know that a lot of people have been waiting for it to be re-stocked.

I've been after a Wazoo for months now to use on the coast as I don't want to run my Puglsey with salt/sand - I'm keeping that for the muddy/peat hills. I've been keeping an eye on both the Halfords Voodoo Wazoo website and the Halfords Wazoo blog; the Halfords Wazoo website has come up error for months now and the blog was last updated on Nov 24th with a very vague:
"We should be getting a very limited number of Wazoos before Christmas – keep your eyes on the site if you’d like to get a hold of one!
Don’t worry if you’ve missed out – who knows what the future might hold?"

I took a quick look around ebay for fat bikes in general and found a used Wazoo for sale. I then did a Wazoo specific search and found they are being sold via Halfords/ebay.

They retail for £499.99 but qualify for a £10 save for every £100 spent. So add something else that's also in the offer (I chose £1.89 star fangled washer to attach a motorbike mudguard to the fork) and the total comes to around £452.00

It also qualifies for free delivery.

TCB of 1%.

I'm told that stock is limited and there won't be any more for a long while after this batch.

Perhaps those lucky enough to get to a shop in person might be able to advise of stock levels. I'm unable to visit a shop in person due to work so am pleased to have bagged a couple.

Available in 18" and 20".

Hopefully this will make somebody's Christmas.

First post so fingers crossed it will work...

8 speed?! Budget indeed. Might be worth it on a C2W scheme? Spec isn't great even for £450 IMO.

16?

16?



Yeah, 8 on the back and 2 on the front. No-one's running 8 speed cassettes or front derailleurs at all these days. 8x2 doesn't equal 16 gears either, you wouldn't want to use all those gear combinations.

Looks OK if you want a fat bike, not convinced I would use one in the UK often, but they look like fun.
This bike is simply what it is - an affordable entry level fat bike that has had great reviews from those who own one. All the money for these bikes is in the frame.

Check out the level of spec on the £1,600.00 Puglsey - not much above poverty spec either but agreed it is better than the Wazoo. Which incidentally costs almost a quarter of the Pugsley.

For what it's worth, I have forks that cost more than the Wazoo so I'm far from being a BSO fan. I usually buy my bikes second hand and upgrade them as required - which is what I'll do with the Wazoo.

I and a few of my peers still have bikes with 8 speed set ups, albeit with higher spec components. 8 speed chains are thicker and stronger than 9/10/11 speed chains, and a well selected 1 x 8 speed cassette will provide all the gearing ever needed along the coast.

Please bear in mind that this is not an ordinary mountain bike frame and as such cannot be compared with an ordinary mountain bike.

I also was unconvinced but after two rides it became my go to bike for all off road terrain.

To give you an idea, I did an experiment with a 14 mile route around my local hills which is basically a mixture of old drove roads that involve steep climbs and descents with gravel, mud and peat. This was undertaken on consecutive evenings with the Pugsley running 26" x 4", my 6" travel full suspension running 26" x 2.3" and my steel 100mm travel hard tail running 26" x 1.9".

The weather conditions were similar each night and my time varied by a minute. With the Pugsley being the fastest overall and the fastest top speed.

And the fat bike improves my fitness on the uphills (_;)
I am too much of weight weenie, and to have another bike (already got 26HT, road, Cx and a retro steel mtb) would not be a good idea.

Still its a good price, reasonable spec for the price and looks like fun.

n+1 my friend, n+1!

Another advantage with a fat bike is that you can slap on a pair of 29's and away you go...
And delivery in under 24 hours...
Thanks Scathel for this post. I know that these bikes were sold out very quickly when last availble and I see from bike forums the arrival of the next batch has been long awaited. I'm a great believer in you get what you pay for and as Scathel says this bike can be upgraded to suit your needs or just live with it as a fun bike for a great price and enjoy it! Either way, for a fun bike with some reasonably quality elements, you can't beat the price especially with the £10 per £100 spent reduction!

How do you get the £10 off £100 to get it at that price?
