Apollo Slant Mens Mountain Bike - 14", 17", 20" Frames is rated out of 5 by 131.Rated 5 out of 5 by KyrieC from Great value, but know what you are getting! I'm possibly different from the usual purchaser of the Apollo Slant. I've had high-end BMXs for years and ridden high end MTBs so I kind of know how low end the Slant is. However, having moved 7 miles out of town and detesting any reliance on the train or bus network to get me in to work I decided to cycle. Because my bike was going to be left outside, secured to an on-street bike rack for 8+ hours a day I either needed a high tech security system or a cheap bike that wasn't a thief magnet. Fully aware of the pitfalls of buying bicycle-shaped-objects (BSOs) I bit the bullet and ordered the cheapest MTB that Halfords do. This is it, the Apollo Slant. Let's face it, when you look at what you can buy bicycle-wise the Slant doesn't have a single redeeming feature other than its price. Or does it? When I picked it up, it looked quite pretty with its red paintwork gleaming. A year's worth of commuting in all weathers has hardly dulled that. I've had BMXs that would look tatty as soon as they saw sunlight but the Slant keeps looking cheap but cheerful. It's only damage is a few scars from the careless stacking of other bikes in the racks during Summer. there is a bit of rust here and there but a wipe over with a rag and some WD40 hides them immediately. The biggest anti theft feature is the Apollo name I'm certain. That plus there isn't a single component on the bike that's really worth the effort of stealing. Even the seat. It's not bad as cheap seats go but you wouldn't risk getting caught to steal one. I keep a u-lock attached to the bike rack in town(naughty I know) and carry a cheap cable lock on the bike. The wheels are QR so any thief would have to unbolt them and with the budget rims and hubs they aren't exactly desirable. The forks are not up to anything beyond paved roads. However, they do soak up the odd pothole admirably and allow a degree of kerb jumping before they bottom out. The brakes are cheap, the levers especially flexible, but they work. They squeak and need adjustment on a monthly basis but used every day I can't complain. The original pads last a while and cheap aftermarket ones from Halfords actually improve them, but wear out quicker. The levers are the only component I've considered changing before they wear out. However, I haven't ... yet. The frame is hi-tensie steel but actually does have a bit of life to it. I wouldn't ride it off road except maybe on towpaths but on the road it is a bit heavy but not cumbersome. I've ridden more expensive hybrids with alloy frames that were a lot less compliant (although they were lighter.) The gears are very basic and the original cables stretch a bit at first and need adjusting every few days. They eventually settle in though and are basic but absolutely fine afterwards. Gripshifts are my least favourite shifters but these basic bargain ones have worked and kept working without stiffening or losing what basic precision they had. The rear 6 speed cogs are an old fashioned freewheel so it means replacing the entire freewheel assembly instead of just a cassette. They have lasted a year of abuse so far and seen off 3 chains and frankly they aren't that expensive compared to high end 10/11 speed cassettes for example so again I can't complain. The front chainrings have lost some paint and that is it. They show no other signs of wear. On the subject of chains, the original is as good as any other. I clean mine with WD40 and replace them after 3 months of everyday use. At less than £6 a chain it's good sense and a preventative maintenance approach worth taking. The original tyres are OK but after 3 punctures in my first two weeks of commuting I did change the tubes for Continental ones and ran them at slightly higher pressures, and that cut the frequency down significantly. I fitted a pair of Halford's cheap Bikehut semi slicks with puncture prevention when they were sufficiently worn and haven't suffered any punctures for some time (touch wood.) The wheels were never 100% true but they have got no worse through a year of hard riding. The rims are a bit scarred from the brake blocks picking up dust and grit but overall they are faring very well. In terms of value it has been superb. I did factor in replacing the Slant after a year or less but I'm going to persevere with it. Would I replace it with another Slant? Yes, definitely. In fact I'll be keeping an eye out to make sure that Halfords aren't discontinuing it. If they start getting scarce I'll buy another one just for when this one finally expires, though that may be some time yet. Oh yeah, last point, I'm a girl. Though the Slant is advertised as a Man's bike it fits me perfectly, and why shouldn't it? Buy one and get a bargain, but be aware that you will have to do a bit of maintenance as it beds in. Be warned!Date published: 2017-11-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Arush from This is an amazing product ! This Bike I’ve had for a few a months and it’s the best bike I’ve ever owned . ONLY downside is the tyres so I switched them up for Kenda good quality ones under £20. Other than that this is an amazing bike .Im only 15 I’ve already made a few mods to this bike like pedals , tyres , lights and also a kickstand .Date published: 2017-11-12Rated 5 out of 5 by SMCKAY94 from Decent bike Arrived earlier than expected Was simple to assemble Was very satisfied with my purchaseDate published: 2017-11-08Rated 4 out of 5 by Badrule from Nice bike I enjoy riding on this bike. The price meets the quality and it is the bike I wanted. Thanks to Halfords fitting my new bike, great job.Date published: 2017-10-28Rated 5 out of 5 by BikerJack from Apollo Slant Review. I have this bike nearly a year. I use this bike everyday in all weathers and its been great. The Shimmano gear's are great. My only problem with the bike was the 2 set's of tyres and tubes which where quite bad which I have recently replaced. This bike is a bargin at the end of the day it has matched my old bikes in the ranges 250-300euro. Great instore services. Me and my brother have had multiply bikes build instore and serviced. Very good service and product.Date published: 2017-10-20Rated 5 out of 5 by jonnyP85 from Great for the Price I am not an avid cyclist - i bought this for cycling to the gym and running routes everyday. I live in a hilly area and bike has performed well. The chain has come off a few times but very easy to slot back on. The staff at halfords were helpful and friendly and fitted everything for me. For the price and what i need it for it has so far been fantastic (only 2 weeks in). I would recommend for anyone wanting something sturdy to get them from a to b. No frills just does the job.Date published: 2017-10-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Bike Fantastic price, good colour layout and excellent performance during riding overal fantastic bike.Date published: 2017-09-24Rated 4 out of 5 by bull1 from product is good This is a good bike it dose exactly what the description says get you from A to B in a week. I purchased two Apollo bikes from Halfords i seen there negative comments they were falling apart after a few days some.. i purchased the Apollo Hybrid had it for almost a year working perfectly until it got stolen it did get damaged that was my own fault for crashing it. I will say with the Apollo cheaper bikes the ones i have purchased anyway i can only speak for them there a good bike if you have a light crash or let it fall something is sure to break it happend to me that was with the Apollo Hybrid overall i like the bike great value great look i have no cons for the bike as of yet i dont know how rigid the bike is as it will only be on the road will not be bike tracking with the bike in the woods.Date published: 2017-09-21
