    Recommend me a cheap mountain bike?

    Hi, I was wondering if you guys could help?

    I know absolutely nothing about bikes, but I'm looking for a cheap one. By cheap, I mean as cheap as possible, definitely no more than £100. I need it only to commute to nearby shops and local amenities, occassionaly perhaps to work. No off-road riding at all.

    I'm 5ft 4, so need something that I'd be comfortable on.

    I've seen these ones, anyone have any views on them:

    CBR Java Alloy Dual Suspension 26" 18 Speed Mens Bike
    amazon.co.uk/Jav…e_3

    Universal Polaris 26" 15 Speed Gents Mountain Bike
    amazon.co.uk/Uni…QZW

    British Eagle Trailbreaker Dual Suspension 26" 18 Speed Mens Bike
    amazon.co.uk/Bri…1-7

    Any comments on these bikes? Which one should I go for?

    Or any other suitable, cheap bikes you've come across? I know there's a 99p deal posted at the moment, but I want something functional out of the box, not something I'm going to have to fix.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for that - they do seem to have some good prices. However all their bikes are on Buy it Now at the moment, whereas looking at his feedback people have saved a fair bit on his auctions. Hope he has plans to put them on auction again...

    Yep, aware of that, but bit too much of a gamble for me. I'd probably keep it in the shed waiting for someone to come and fix it for me!

    How about this one: halfords.com/web…665
    You can reserve and collect at £79.99 and they also build it for your and do all the checks for free. Hurry if you like this one it goes up to £89.99 on 8th January

    They had that 99p offer on bikes with £25 delivery

    Don't waste your money on a new one at that price it'll b ****. Get yerself a good 2nd hand one from Ebay.

    Thanks for the headsup - after searching lots of places for a bike which met my requirements, price and size, I decided to go for this one from Boots with the £10 voucher. Thanks!
