wow, Ive never heard of that bike. I don't think anyone on this forum has ever brought that one up.
I haven't heard of the bike or its manufacturer before either. From what I found online, it seems like a bike more commonly found in Europe (mostly german registered websites turned something up). It looks like a relatively cheap bike judging from the pictures I found: Some unnamed coil shock in the rear, Promax brakes (eww), Shimano Tourney derailleur (I think, it was hard to see, but it had the big ugly red cog), Zoom fork (I think, I can't say I've heard of a Zoom before; Google says it's a Huffy brand specific fork), et cetera. Does that sound like the bike you're looking at?
hey yeh its a bike that we sell over in the UK from halfords! its roughly £150 at the moment was £300 the bike them selfs are not bad. depends what riding you want to do!

yeah its a halfords spot buy, its not worth much really... if its second hand dont pay more then £20 lol - seriously, it was never worth 150, and it definatly isnt worth the original £300 pricetag. trust me, i work for halfords, and build and inspect these things on a regular basis.

Same here £300 spot buys down to £150, definetely not worth the £150 asking price, and they quite often fall to bits, depending on the type of riding have a look at local lbs, even halfords at the moment have some good deals on bikes.
yeh lol they are pretty popular to the unknowing bike riders!! they move out of my store quicker than we get them in! grrrrr hate the way there packed!! takes longer unwrapping them than to assemble/check everything over!
