“Its a great bike when you have fitted aftermarket...”

Written on: 25/06/2015 by HenryBennett94 (1 review written)

I bought one of these bikes second-hand for £125.00, the standards components are really bad, if you are thinking about buying one of these, make sure you have roughly £600 extra for aftermarket parts. I took this bike for a run the day after I got it, it was possibly to most uncomfortable bikes I've ever rode. I then bought £600+ on parts to make this bike better. I have owned Kona and Trek MTB's, and I must say that after these parts were installed it felt the same as one of the £3000+… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2009

Well, I've been riding this Barracuda Jacana bike for about 6 months now, I think that it is great for it's price. I have taken the bike on very intense trails, like Cwm Carn, it was fine on Cwm Carn. The bike comes with Hybrid tyres which I replaced with Kenda Negagels, for about £25 (pair). Recently I have had a problem, but a one that any bike I would have ridden this would have happened. So what happened is the Rear D railleur Hanger bent, but this happens on all bikes. (£20 pounds to… Read Full Review

“I bought this Barracuda Jacana bike 2 years ago (2007...”

Written on: 22/04/2009

I bought this Barracuda Jacana bike 2 years ago (2007 spec). I got it for £150 after hard negotiations and it is a good bike for this money. However, I have had a few issues with it. The front derraileur is unbranded and I found it hard to tune up. I sent it to a bike shop and they got it nearly working ok. When I changed the tires for smaller width ones (1.95) I could adjust it so there is no problem.
The disk brakes are constantly in contact and they squeek even with disk brake cleaner the… Read Full Review

If you are planning on buying this Barracuda Jacana, I would recommend the Claud Butler Pagan or Claud Butler Ravana as an alternatives. It's heavy, looks rubbish, brakes are rubbish, the bell isn't loud enough and the suspension is non-existent… Read Full Review
