The "Mountain Ridge Stratus" sold at JJB sports for £99?

Doesn't look all that nice.

Don't know this bike. The front suspension, steel frame, and 26" wheels make this seem quite a heavy bike, but it might be OK. Depends what you want to do with it; if you are going on trails and so forth then it might be the bike for you, if you are sticking to tarmac a slightly lighter-duty bike without suspension might be a better bet.

In terms of budget bikes, if you look at "Freespirit Albany" on ebay, they cost about the same, I bought one last year and am very pleased with it. It comes with mudguards and rack, you can just take these off (the mudguards were awful, I swapped mine).
