"A cheap bike"

I bought the 2008 version of this exact bike from Halfords. Everything on this bike is the same apart from the paintwork.

I had a bad accident on my 'Apollo XC 26'. I was riding down a mild hill and my back wheel locked due to the cheap and flimsy V-brake. I went straight over the handlebars and shattered my collar bone. Also the chain was coming of practically every time I rode it.

In my opinion the bike is comprised of cheap components, as it's so cheap.

The one good thing about this bike is the price!!

If I ever bought this bike again i'd strip it right back to the frame and then replace everything else.

Overall i'd say that it's the right bike for you if your a beginner cyclist who won't be using it very often.
