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?

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.
