Hey guys, I'm gonna buy a new bike in the £300ish range, any suggestions?
I'm gonna be doing everything really, riding to work and offroad/trails etc

Prefferably a hard tailed mountain bike.

I've been looking into Specialized, but I'm not too familiar with decent bikes.

I suggest talking to a bikevendor about it, they can recommend you good types of bikes e.t.c.
What we recommend they might not have. Atleast that's how it is where I live =/

I'm looking to buy a £400-500 bike in the near future so I'll follow this thread a bit anyway.

I would join in and make it an orgy, f*cking my father up the ass while he gives it hard to my sweet little pumpkin, culminating in me cumming all over his bearded face.


...is that what you wanted to hear?

I am here to ride bike!

Get a mountain bike, seriously. I have a Kona, and it's held up pretty well, after a few years.

Ok, I should have been more specific, yeah, a hard tailed mountain bike is what I'm looking for

I've got a Trek Jack that was around that price, and I can definitely recommend it.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

Because we are only going to recommend rape and rape.

I'm in the exact same boat. Know buggar all but I'm slowly learning.

Look into Specialized, Kona, Scott etc.

My boss is right into biking, he has a custom bike worth over £3000 D:


He reckons you're miles better off buying a second hand £600-£700 bike then a new £300-£400 bike.

Yes my boss is also into downhill and holds the same sentiment. I think I've heard him praise Kona and detest Saracen. Or to buy the frame and other bits separately. Not sure what kind of quality parts you could buy for £300 though

*insert Pokemon joke*

You should look for used bikes you can get good ones for half the price.

Ore build your own bike just get a decent frame and good gears,and gradually upgrade.(will end up expensive tho)

Had my MTB for like 5years and used it pretty much everyday,was a cheapo bike,but it wasn't bad frame was light,gears worked,and i used it for off road and city riding.

But it literally got worn out i changed all the disposable stuff,Brakes,tires,wires Etc.
in the long run i couldn't be bothered changing stuff,and just let it go to hell.

I really want a new bike to but they are bit pricey.

But the insurance company has paid out £500 for the 2009 model, so all is not lost.
