New or Recycled

We are often asked which is better, an economy bike (often called flat pack) from stores like Tesco, Argos, Asda, Toys r Us, Halfords or a recycled one.

We always try to provide unbiased advice but in this case we would prefer you to watch a programme that the BBC TV series Watchdog did on economy/flat pack bikes.


Hopefully this will help you decide whether to buy an economy bike or a recycled bike.

Happy viewing



cycle-re-cycle sincerely thank The BBC Watchdog team for allowing us to show their programme on flat pack bikes.
