Never heard of them, price is cheap though.

Another clone of the Jamis Dakar and American Eagle Devil Hills.

Guess the rear suspension of those just worked back in '95-96?

I reckon that's more then just a clone- they've come out of the same factory as the Jamis.

Look at that rear brake cable setup- it's identical.

And if that's a steel rear end, it's the same as a Devil Hills!

Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. :?

Either way, it looks like more than just your average BSO. Gotta be worth £55?

Not if you use one as a winter bike, it makes the rear end pretty much indestructible though.

It's an alu back end, you can just about see the welds in the close-up shot.

I've just pulled the trigger on one, so I'll 'review' it once it arrives :oops: :lol:

The 17" is actually 17.5" c-t.

Mine looks pretty good in the metal, I'm expecting the shock to be rubbish but who cares for that price? Colours are a bit 'marmite' but the decals go really nicely with 3DV bits 8)
