I’ve been trying to get the Bizango and the Nucleus for the last 2 months but both been out of stock every time. So I decided to look for other options and found the Line 20. It seems to have a better fork compared to the other 2 and also lower price. However, can’t get any other reviews or information about it. Is it a good choice or should I just wait for the other 2. This will be my first bike so want it to go smoothly.
Heres the link for the Line 20 https://www.ultimateoutdoors.com/equipment/361898-calibre-line-20-mountain-bike-red.html
Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

The Calibre bikes are great value bikes, but they’re actually Go Outdoors’ own brand of bikes & Go Outdoors recently went into administration (albeit temporarily)… So it’s a bit uncertain. Go Outdoors obviously say it’s gonna be fine… But who knows.

The Line 10 seems to get a really good review from Bikeradar, 5 stars out of 5 actually so I can’t see the Line 20 coming in far behind it in terms of ability.

Yea I heard the same thing. They apparently went into administration for like 2 days but JDSports who own them stepped in and saved them apparently. Yea just found out the Line 20 has the same frame and it doesn’t look that bad. Wish there were atleast one independent review on this even from a buyer.

There’s a decentish customer review on Go Outdoors own site: https://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/15904153/calibre-line-20-mountain-bike-15904153 but yeah, aside from that not really much else to be found online
