That's the bike they use at centerparcs as a 'mountain bike'.....

Nothing really wrong with it, just a bike.........

the rockadile is a well made cheap bike - low spec but decent enough for daily riding and way above a BSO quality wise. The kids versions 3 years back were almost as light as the specialized equivilents, were specced the same and were £40 cheaper - I only went with Specialized because the stand over was lower.

a nice cheap bike...I have one converted to run as a single speed winter/mud bike with 99 sid xc's & xt v's/wheelset , tompson post etc.....a very strong frame but a but harsh on the old body.....makes a g8 single speed..... no flex at all :o

quite light & good geomerty & using my old parts it cost me next to nothing to build up.
