Hi all,

I've been given this bike but can't find any info on it about whether it's a stock or custom build. I'm not very experienced at all with bikes really and don't often ride much, just tend to put them on a turbo trainer like I have this one. I've never seen this kind of frame before. I'm assuming it's a muddyfox because that's the name on the seat but I'm supposing that this could have just been replaced. Front suspension and 21 gears is probably all I can gauge by just looking at it.

Now to try to upload some pictures!

Edit: not sure how to get the pictures to display properly so have put the tinypic urls, I hope that's ok.

from that one picture I can only guess it's a muddy Fox or some cheap make because of the very cheap suspension forks and the v breaks, and the frame looks heavy. all signs of a cheap Argos/Tesco/sports direct bike. £50-100. it's probley ok on the turbo trainer but it will wear out the cassette on the bike quite quick if your doing a lot of miles each session. hope this helps.

Looks like a Boris bike

Apart from those it shows "Tioga" and "Alchemy" near the handlebars. I can't find any other markings.

Thanks. It is just going to be on the turbo trainer and I generally only aim for about 2 hours per session every other day, no idea how far that is though.

Can I ask why does it matter? If you have it already what difference does it make which maker it is?
