I found this bike to be heavy and made from very cheap products, i would spend a litttle bit more on a better branded bike and you will definately notice the extra quality for your money

The X-Rated XC.05* 14/26" Mens Dirt Jump Style Bike is a dirt jump style bike so is not light weight
If you want a lightweight bike then you will need one that has an aluminium frame of even lighter a carbon frame. These are much more expensive and are NOT designed for stunt riding.

Whilst the Apollo X-Rated XC.05* 14/26" Mens Dirt Jump Style Bike is an excellent bike we are unable to comment on if it is as good as the Landrover Defender Bike you had previously as we have not compared these bikes against each other directly.
The Apollo Bike is exclusive to Halfords against a Brand name Landrover Bike.
At halfprice (currently) there is no question that this bike is outstanding value currently.

We are unable to inform you with certainty but it sounds like the cable tension requires adjustment.

This is prob due to cable slack. By turning the barel adjuster on the back of the rear mech will sort the problem, If you are unsure what to do, best thing it to drop it down to your local Halfords stores so they can sort it for you. Then you can be sure it is sorted fine without getting any worse.

thats no problem, drop your bike into your local store, and subject to staff/time availability, the repair can be carried out while you wait.
expect to pay £4.99 for a 26x2.1" innertube and up to £7.99 for the labour.

if you have used a water based lube on the forxs, or the store used a waterr based lube, then this could freeze solid when it is cold.

lift the rubber seals up on the forks and use a better quality grease or oil and replace rubber seals

There is no immediately apparent reason for this. It may be beneficial to lift up the rubber boots on the fork legs and apply some lubricant.
