Yes their reputation is pretty bad (from what I hear), my dealings with them haven't been great so whilst I would buy from them again it certainly wouldn't be anything of value. Just out of interest what were the brakes?

There are bits and bobs about online or try you local bike shop, my local who stocks Specialized does seem to be getting things in.

Yeah looking at the specs that's fair. Really the Voodoos don't get good till the Hoodoo or Bizango.

DO NOT ORDER THIS - PLANET X ARE AWFUL. this deal cropped up at the beginning of the month at a slightly higher price which I went for. So far they have sent me 2 bikes both with completely bent derailleurs. This headache has cost me the better part of a whole month. The quality I hear is generally bad - the bike looked alright to me, but they couldn't replace a derailleur with a new part. Instead they wanted to collect the bike and send me a new one that process took 2 weeks, now I have a second bike that has the exact same issue. I'm getting a refund and never want to deal with this company again

anyone know where these might be available in L or XL I'm just seeing OOS preference would be Giant Trek or Specialised

I agree, which is why I used the term “leisure bike”.

Don't know what mountain biking you've been doing, go down any medium trail on this and you'd be dead

SapperChris

I’m a keen mountain biker so this is not for me but still a good price for a leisure bike in these covid times.

Lots of problems with these types of bikes but the main issue is the very poor suspension that can fail quickly and just adds a huge amount of weight to the bike. The key advice when buying a cheap new bike is to keep it simple. This is far too complicated a bike to be made of very low end parts. This would be a better option for the same money if you can find stock. https://www.argos.co.uk/product/6007870 It's 3kg lighter, much stronger and maintenance will be much simpler.

I expect this is around actually price and the RRP is inflated. They aren’t worth the none sale £650 price tag they have, around the £450 mark seems way more realistic.

Just picked this up from PlanetX ebay store for £436.99 delivered. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402663271516?hash=item5dc099ec5c:g:ZeYAAOSw0PNgIo6a It's also reduced on their own website to £429.99 + £24.99 delivery (454.98 in total). See you on the hills next weekend.

Price now £649. Well done those who bagged a bargain!

I emailed them about 2-3 years ago to ask about maximum rider weight and I seem to recall they stated 120kg total load same as go outdoors which is about average for total load with btwin being less but many brands being more. Tends to be the US brands, Giant and Halfords that are at the maximum weight rating of 160kg with 120-136kg allowed for rider weight. Some have the same total load rating but differ on how much weight can be on the saddle post between 120-136kg. Generally with the US citizens being heavier they tend to have a higher rating than many european brands. Also it varies by bike. Road bikes can be a bit less than mountain bikes depending on brand. Decathlon have recently introduced some gravel bikes that have a high 170kg total load rating but typically in the past they had a rating on only 100kg total load for most of their bikes. I'm a heavy rider so always interested in the maximum load rating. I can't even consider a normal btwin bike as I'm above their weight rating. At 100kg total load that only leaves about 80kg for the rider and I'm well above that. However I could consider one of the newer btwin gravel bikes with the 170kg rating which would allow generous load capacity for me. There is a difference of 70kg load rating between most decathlon bikes and their new gravel bikes.

I had a look on the evans website - nothing on there I could see about weight rating.... where can I find this? Not a bog fan of HGVs

Have you tried contacting Evans? Owned by the same people

CoasterRoller

How did anyone managed to make contact with SportsDirect re. a problem? Ignoring everything I've tried via eBay and directly... (Arrived damaged/broken -- wasn't an option to reject as was dumped outside w/o even attempting to get a signature, etc.)

Harvey_Hirst

Yes

Moscha

So the rattle is coming from the derailer being too far one sided? And therefore rubbing the chain?

Harvey_Hirst

A bit of both. One of them creates more space between the chain and the bike.

Getting desperate for any kind of bike now for my 9 year old girl. I guess it’s the 24 inch wheel I need. Everything seems to be out of stock. Really looking for a quick buy for holidays starting after school tomorrow or as close in the near future as possible. Almost went for Carrera Blast until I realised it wouldn’t be available locally until end of next week. Any advice/suggestions appreciated.

It's showing £139. How to bring it down to £116?

Most bikes are based on the old safety bicycle frame, 90s mountain bikes, gravel bikes, road bikes and many others it was the classic bike frame design that just worked and was hard to improve on but modern mountain bikes are much more interesting with regard geometry. I think if the bike frame is using normal tubes its hard not to design it around the old safety bicycle frame its really with carbon fibre and hydro-formed aluminium tubes that bike frames have got a bit more creative. Looking at Amazon's current best selling bike below again you can see it uses simple tubes even though it has a strengthening section below the downtube where it meets the headtube. It looks modern enough but it still the classic safety bicycle frame with the seat stays meeting the top tube and the large amount of tubes meeting at the bottom bracket to reinforce it. A very strong efficient design that is easy to manufacture. Timeless British engineering of the highest level. There must have been 100s if not 1000s of different designs before we got to this one though.

snoopy104

Yeah I guess so, probably just false advertising really. Maybe it should be branded a safety bicycle if that is what it is and they should probably stop using a previously respected brand name like Muddy Fox on this thing. Its sad that the people producing this thing are misleading people into thinking they are purchasing a mountain bike when in fact it isn't really. You could probably pick something up like this used and with at least a branded drive train for £15+, or drag one out of an Inner city canal yourself for free . I'm still not sure why a market for this exists.

This Fuji looks pretty basic before pandemic pricing similar bikes would occasionally drop to under £200 (not with Fuji branding). It's just a basic freewheel on it same as bikes around £100. You take a hardtail off-road and the rear wheel can take a real beating and a freewheel will never put with that abuse unless you are very light. So while it looks the part this bike mechanically is very low end and not strong. Even with pandemic pricing I really can't see this being worth more than about £250 to price it about close to £500 just seems like a bit of a scam to me but I've noticed this with Go Outdoors before amongst their excellent deals you often get really awful deals too, I think Halfords are more consistent and are still offering bikes like this under their Apollo range for £250 or less. The only advantage of the Fuji is it has a slightly better fork it looks like a Suntour XCT or XCE but its pointless fitting it to a bike with the rest of the specification so poor in my opinion. Seems a poorly judged specification. The Carrera Valour is a much better bike and that is only £310 at Halfords or various alternatives around that price (stock levels vary by Halfords store). I wouldn't recommend this Fuji.

It’s a great bike. I bought it for my son a few months back. Out of stock everywhere, but I went to the go outdoors on York Road Leeds and they had 2 just sat there. He said they got them in as they get built. Never get put online. I’d just ring around your local stores and see if they have or are expecting any.

Natemavz

Been looking for a 2 cubed after seeing some reviews about them. Seemed like a good first bike. Any advice on how to locate one?

basergorkobal

Wouldn't recommend this bike to anyone actually thinking of taking this into any off-road more serious than a canal path. This other deal is worth looking at: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/new-calibre-line-20-mountain-bike-size-s-and-m-3678021
