Resently purchased the xcs 5.0 mountain bike by malvern star and all I can say is AWSOME I just can't stop riding this bike. I have 7 other bikes and aside from my jamis the xcs is my ride of choice.
Well done malvern star 10 out of 10 from me so far.
Looks great feels great rides great. Great value for money very happy. Light durable and very well built. Comfortable to ride
Best bike for under $500. Malvern Star, a quality item.
Great bike served me well over the years still have it over 4 years and have put it through the works no complaints at all. By far the best kit for under $500 thanks malvern star. Best bike brand.
For just under $500 this was the most optioned bike in its range. It rides well and has a strong feel about it (I'm over 100kgs and it doesn't feel like breaking). The lock-out shocks are a huge advantage for both road and track riding. Malvern Star remains a quality bike after all these years.
Only bike in its price range that has all the 'options' (quick-release front and rear wheels & seat, mechanical disc brakes, lock-out shocks). All alloy, smooth ride with quality gears. Great colors too!
Stock pedals are a little small (too close to the cranks for size 10 feet!)
