Martin, Reading Motorcycle/bike technician

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It's cheap, you are getting what you pay for with the ease of the stores back up. Will do as a occaisional use bike but not a lot more. You get what you pay for, and on that basis it's quite good value for money.
Bad points:
It's cheap ! The gears are very stiff and the quality of brakes and gears are poor, but they are in line with the price. I'm a experienced bike repairer and they need to be set up, for some i'm sure best to pay a cycle shop.

Barry, Peterborough male aged between 30-40

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
none
Bad points:
Complete poor design, on assembly the pedals were rubbing against the front wheel. I personally think, the bike was a complete danger to the rider and other road users. I can now understand why it was being flogged at half price.

little on the heavy side but don't let this put you off, could do with a little more padding on the saddle

Confirmed purchaser Stay clear of product.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
At first the price, but then ! ! !
Bad points:
Appears to now be of poor quality, only had it for four weeks, handlebar screw stripped it's thread, unable to tighten sufficiently and now the gear change grip mechanisms on the handlebar has cracked and disintegrated into several pieces. The crank has excessive lateral movement and the brakes seem very spongy.
