Silverback, the South African-born cycling brand, has big plans for international expansion over the next five years and lists among its growth areas urban mobility (commuter/city bikes) and mountain biking.

A pity then that they make such crap bikes...

 

Could you maybe qualify your statement with some facts?

 

I think the bikes are pretty decent, especially for the price. So does the Australian Colnago importer who is the official agent for Silverback in that country.

Value for money they are hard to beat. I am surprised there has not been much response to Henmans comment. We are soooo brand conscious...I have seen Silverbacks being punted here on the Hub. Maybe everyone is watching Henman wannabe Murray being given a lesson in tennis by Rafa!

I feel compelled to reply to Timmy's erudite response. Clearly, you are a fountain of brand-related knowledge and your extremely detailed and well-constructed reply to what was an otherwise fairly informative post speaks volumes; far more than your 1st service! By the way Timmy, have you ever ridden a Silverback?

How rare - a Hubber with a respectable command of the English language. Nothing like a subtle F*** you :P

 

Incidentally, I concur whole-heartedly. Bold claims without further motivation are worthless.

Ha ha, chill out everyone. I'm just grumpy because a Brit will never ever win Wimbledon.

They are good value but the build quality just doesn't seem to be on par with some of the other brands. I have ridden one and didn't enjoy the feel. A mate also cracked one while pedalling along some district road. Each to their own.

have agree with you 100% I have two mates who have the full sus xc, not sure which one, think they paid about 18k for them, when compared to the merida 96 1000 which at the time was similar price the build quality was chalk and cheese. Not sure about their higher level models.

 

you get what you pay for

Can you be more specific about the build quality?
