It's more mountain bike style than actual mountain bike. The front suspension looks extremely basic and the rear wheel has a freewheel which wouldn't cope with serious off road use. You can probably get a real mountain bike from about £250 with a freehub based drivetrain and entry level suntour forks if you shop around. Look for a 24 speed drivetrain and a suntour fork. Suntour XCT is their entry level XC fork (28mm stanchions) and ok for light use off road or lighter riders, Suntour XCM is their stronger 30mm stanchion model which is a pretty reasonable entry level fork, I think there is a XCM 32 which has stronger 32mm stanchions again so a bit more heavy duty and then Suntour XCR which I think is 32mm stanchions with an air fork option. I've seen XCM's on fairly low cost bikes. £200 is close to getting a real entry level mountain bike that it seems false economy not to spend an extra £50.


Cheap and cheerful. Hard to tell if it's a good price or just an over-inflated RRP, since it appears that literally no other retailers sell this bike.

This marketing information is a bit annoying. Hydroformed: We manipulate the shapes and wall-thickness of our aluminium tubing to increase strength and resistance to unwanted flex. Many of the tubes are butted to save weight in the middle of the tubes, away from the stress of the joints and weld zones. Using aluminium technologies as advanced as our carbon manufacturing ensures our aluminium bikes are never second best. According to information online Orbea buys bare frames from the far east and paints them themselves and the lower end bikes are assembled in Portugal and the more expensive models in Spain. So the far east frame manufacturer does the above. Also hydroforming of aluminium tubes is done by just about every manufacturer of aluminium frames for exactly the same reasons. Almost all frames except the very, very cheapest have butting. I tried to find out which type of aluminium the frame uses but couldn't see it on the Orbea site so assume nothing special probably 6061. I haven't done the calculations to see if its a good price for the components included. On face value it doesn't look particularly great value for what you are getting but I could be wrong.


Better components and fork and the shape looks better, also it’s a boost so can fit the wider 2.8 tyres, but double the price think you’d need to ride them to work out that , I know which would be more fun


I would wait until the new Vitus sentier's come out if you're looking for a great value hardtail


Is the Orbea much better than the Voodoo Bizango??

I'll have to look in the garage, but I'm sure it's a cube, spent a fair bit of time on ebay/shpock/gumtree, everytime something came up I'd Google reviews and weight, still spent £80(and that was cheap, compared to some) but will defo last 2 summers and will get some money back when I shift it on, you'll quickly get used to the brand names that are good, but quality second kids bike hold their value if they are looked after


if this is your budget than look ebay..


Steel frame, rigid fork - this is approximately 16kg (the awful suspension version was 19kg!) Just bear in mind that a decent adult mountain or hybrid bike like a Boardman weighs around 12kg, so a 75kg adult is having to control a bike 6 times lighter than his/her bodyweight. The kids that will ride this will weight about, what, 30 to 35kg? The bike half the kid's bodyweight. Can you imagine riding a 37kg bike around? It would be miserable trying to control that tank. Kids need light bikes. Lighter bikes tend to be of a much higher quality and will last longer. Buy used for £150 then sell them on for a small loss after they have outgrown them. This steel Apollo junk will be in the landfill in 2 years.

Mountain bike with no gears...?


could you tell me which aluminium bike your daughter is using? I am also looking for an inexpensive one for mine. thanks

I have spent the past week looking for a decent entry level spec 29” mountain bike. I’ve looked at models from various manufacturers, including Voodoo, GT, and Cube. i was torn be… Read more

I'm not sure of the weight limits on voodoo bikes to be honest. I think Halfords license the Voodoo brand and the bikes aren't the same as voodoo bikes sold in the US etc. Halfords aren't great at providing downloadable pdf manuals either. The great thing about Halfords though is they are everywhere so definitely worth spending the time to pop in and check them out before purchase.


How about the Carrera Fury? It's a 27.5 rather than a 29er, but it has got decent spec. £510 at Halfords using code 15CARRERA I've shortlisted this myself, along with the Bizango and Boardman MHT 8.6. Whichever I end up going for will be via purchased via Cycle2work so should be even cheaper.


Thank you very much for the information, you have saved me a lot of trouble and disappointment. It would have cost me to return this bike had I not read your posts, but luckily I was able to cancel before despatch. I think I will wait until Halfords have a suitable Carrera model on offer, no offers this week, or maybe a Voodoo model, such as the Aizan, but again that has gone back to full price again. Do you know the weight limits for Voodoo bikes, I can’t seem to find anything online? Like the look of the Voodoo Bizango when it comes on at a sale price again. Happy to wait and use my hybrid for the time being.


You are perfectly fine with most mountain bikes, the big US and Canadian brands are mainly at 160kg total load or 300lbs/136kg for rider weight as is Giant. Halford's Carrera bikes are rated to a 160kg total load and 120kg rider maximum weight (not sure why the Carrera isn't 136kg for rider weight but 120kg is what their manuals say). Btwin are the worst at 100kg total load including bike weight. Even if you overload a frame it doesn't mean it will break immediately it could still have 3 years of life before it cracks etc but personally I wouldn't risk it. Fatigue in aluminium takes a while to work, all aluminium frames get weaker with time and they allow for a reasonable lifespan when certified (probably at least 7 years or more) so will adjust the maximum rider weight. The recommended weight limits for the certification standard for mountain bikes is with a total load of 160kg and 136kg rider weight and many manufacturer's comply with that. It's easy for bike brands to go cheap on the frame, with less reinforcing and strengthening the frame is cheaper to buy from the far east manufacturer and weight obsessed cyclists will see a lighter frame as positive plus it could create a nicer riding bike but of course in the detail of the manual the weight limits are reduced. Btwin frames seem to be spot on the same weight limits as chinese market spec frames but the Cube frames are marginally above. Also bear in mind fatigue is not part of the guarantee of most frames, that is seen as fair wear and tear and normal use. A manufacturing defect is where a weld fails for example. A heavy rider is unlikely to destroy a frame immediately but instead massively accelerate fatigue and shorten the life of the frame. I'm a heavy rider myself so have put a lot of research into rider weight limits of brands over the years and have destroyed many bicycle components. I'm quite a fan of some of the mid price point btwin bikes but their low weight limits and history of frame recalls means I wouldn't have the nerve to ride one unless I lose a fair chunk of weight.


For the record, I’ve just contacted CRC and unfortunately had to cancel my order as they confirmed the low overall weight limit for this bike. Remains a good bike for any fairly light riders out there! My search continues.........

Great bike on a budget, air forks with remote lockout, 10 speed deore, really good value. Hard to find something 10 speed with air forks at this price.

Maybe an effect of the Halford's takeover. As much as I like Halford's bikes for great value when discounted especially, their customer service seems hit and miss to say the least going by accounts on the Internet. I've used Tredz for small orders recently. Maybe 2 or 3 orders this year. Each time I choose them because they had the best price and I made use of their £5 off £30 code often making orders of pretty much £30. I got the orders ok and well packed but they take about 3-4 days longer than their competitors to get to me. I pretty much shop by price only using companies with known poor customer service but still find your experience totally unacceptable because I know I would be frustrated to be locked in to their company like that.


I agree . I won't be shopping with them again . Looking at reviews online, they used to be really good but recently there is a lot of negative . I will be sure to add one more .


That's pretty disgusting behaviour. They should not have processed the voucher unless they were sure they had stock as per the order. Definitely very disappointing customer service to say the least.


Thanks . They weren't that helpfull really , and the most they offered was £20 off , I got the Orbea MX 40 29er in the end which has similar specs but without as good forks for the same price . I would of gone elsewhere but they cashed my C2W voucher so I could only buy from them or cancel the voucher and start the applying process again (which my employer only does 2 times a year and I might of missed it ).All together I would avoid this company in future and probably leave a not so great review . Ps they still haven't taken this bike off their website so beware anyone with a C2W voucher


I Just went through their website for you and unfortunately for the same spec you're looking at £650. You'd hope they'd help you out with a decent amount of store credit towards it Alternatively see if they'll give you the 2019 version Its the same spec as the 2018 version (same bike with a different paint job)

Well that is the other end of the spectrum a very fast lightweight road bike, a great bike but it does have low weight limits and has no hybrid functionality purely on the road. The carbon forks will improve comfort a bit but it's definitely not a comfort bike like the Crossfire. You'll massacre your mate in speed if you have this and he has the Crossfire unless he is lighter and fitter than you or you have to take the long route via road and he can take rougher ground. I personally don't like carbon forks, they are brittle and can fail dramatically and would always avoid them but I think that is an issue I have, I'm a heavy rider anyway and just not suitable for me. Just bear in mind if the bike topples over or you have a minor accident you really should have the forks checked and possibly scanned for cracks etc. They need careful monitoring for possible damage. A certain percentage of carbon forks will fail too due to voids and manufacturing issues. I personally prefer more robust steel or aluminium forks.


cheers, would this be any better? It gets rave reviews. Sorry to hijack the thread.


Crossfire is a decent enough bike but do you really need front suspension? It makes the bike less efficient and less reliable. I would recommend the Subway as a better bike in my opinion but I would take the time to go into Halfords and see which bike you prefer. The crossfire is configured as a comfort hybrid bike for those older cyclists with bad backs or other minor health issues you are sacrificing a lot of cycling speed and efficiency to get a softer ride quality but most people don't need that very soft ride quality. If you get a Subway not only will it be a better bike on the road but its stronger mountain bike frame and wheels will mean its more capable off road as well. You will also not have to spend as much time maintaining a subway bike.


guys, I known nothing about bikes. My buddy has a Carrera Crossfire 2. I want to start biking with him 2/3 times a week after work for an hour. I've tested his bike and I like it. We will be travelling 90% roads, 10% parks/ offroad. Is this anything like it? PS = i will be using cycle2work tnx in advance.tagteam


How do you personally define excel on the road? If it is purely commuting speed and lightness then I take your point but that definition isn't the same as many others. I might consider excelling on the road as coping with potholes, stronger brakes, more upright riding position and tyres that don't need constant pumping up before every journey. I agree the marketing term is incorrect and a hybrid's strength is surely its versatility and the fact it doesn't excel at either but one person's perfect road bike might be a Brompton, another's maybe a super lightweight carbon road bike and another a simple steel workhorse of a bike that doesn't get the attention of thieves. I've seen forum posting's where someone was recommended a typical road bike as a commuting bike by a bike shop and then realised when he got it he hated it for commuting and had to convert it to flat handlebars as drop bars were inappropriate for the start/stop cycling in heavy traffic where he needed upright visibility and constant braking. It was an expensive mistake as changing the brake levers and shifters was not cheap. Apart from the crappy freewheel based drivetrain this Parva seems a pretty good commuting bike. Decent trigger shifters too none of that twist/revo shifter rubbish which can be dangerous.

This is more mountain bike style. Appears to have a low strength freewheel rather than a freehub and cassette so wouldn't be strong enough to be used for reasonable off road use. It's hard to tell as there are minimal images but normally a 7 speed cogset is a freewheel nowadays and it certainly looks like one. There are better bikes at halfords in my opinion for similar money with better components and can actually be used seriously off road.

All three of those bikes are terrible value in my opinion and none of them are capable of serious off road use. The Slab would be with a wheel, cassette and spacer upgrade but not as stock. If you don't mind going off-road without suspension then the Carrera Subway is a good option. However if you can still find stock the Carrera Sulcata is selling for £250 and gives you larger 29" wheels which are also compatible with larger profile 700c road tyres. It's a nice bike and great value at £250 but if you can stretch just above £300 there will be better options like the Carrera Vulcan which I think is £325 last time I looked. Whatever you want to make sure the bike you buy has a freehub based drivetrain and if suspension suntour provides the best entry level forks in my experience. Take your time choosing your bike, don't rush into it. There are many absolutely terrible bikes that sell well above £200 that look the part but don't actually perform very well at all.


Friends, Newbie in cycling world Looking MTB for commute to work no more than 10 miles return. (though not at the present but will from summer) again no more than couple of days a week. off road in weekend. not looking to spend fortune. I am thinking between these 3 bikes above calibre slab (£279) ammaco gran cru : (£200) barracuda draco 2 : (£229) anything else you guys suggest thanks in advance


Many people do buy on looks but personally I'd advise against it. Strangely the first real mountain bike at Go Outdoors price wise is the Kona Hahanna at £300. It's an ok spec with a proper freehub drivetrain. The first Calibre real mountain bike appears to be the Calibre Two Two but is using the older 26" wheels which are a little out of favour nowadays. I would definitely check out your local Halfords too and Decathlon if you have one nearby. Both offer some decent bikes at low prices. However bear in mind Halfords bikes are normally rated to rider weights of 120kg, Calibre up to 100kg and Decathlon/Btwin often about 85kg (100kg minus bike weight). If your a fan of curries and sweet treats like myself then Halfords might be the better option although saying that I think the Kona is rated to 136kg. It's always nice to know you have a stronger frame although a lighter weaker frame can have better feel when riding. You will often see reinforcing of the frame on Carrera models that you will not see on Calibre or Btwin bikes. Btwin also have a history of frame failures but I suspect this might be related to people not adhering to the weight limits stated in the manuals. I only mention the weight limits as any recommendation for btwin bikes should include that. 85kg is about the average weight of a UK male so it is easy for many people to go above that weight limit. Calibre bikes are fine for a much wider range of men and the Halfords bikes will enable almost all males to ride. If you are in the weight limits though the Rockrider 520 and 540 are nice budget mountain bikes. However for most people the Carrera Subway is actually their best option. A go anywhere rigid mountain bike with a decent quality drivetrain. There are 2 versions but either are good. It's efficient on the road and very strong and capable of reasonable off road use.


“Don’t buy upgrades, ride up grades” - Eddie Merckx. This bike will be absolutely fine for general riding about & off road paths & getting fit. No need to upgrade. If you want to be king of the trail centre or do 100 miles a week, you wouldn’t buy this bike anyway.
