Carrera Vulcan
here the halfords link:

I think the one in store has a silver fram, which i think looks better.


GT Aggressor XC3
Heres the Halfords link:

I think one of these bike are best for around £200, but if you know of any others please tell me.
Thanks for any help.

    Its a tough one - very similar spec and the vulcan score best in class with WMB a few issues back...

    Personally I would go with the GT - the reason for this is you have a proven frame geometry and it's perfect to upgrade on when bits wear out etc......

    I bought my missus a Aggressor 3.0XC and it's a really nice bike, BTW I have a Aggressor 2.0XC and i love it long time :lol:
  • I have had the same dilema and looked seroiusly at the Agressor but only had up to a 20 " frame at Halfords, and when I tried it compared to the Vulcan it still felt a little cramped for me as i'm 6'3" tall, so going for the 22" Vulcan, but it may be good for you as I agree the spec is great for the extra £50 ish and its a better name and all that, but i'm going the Vulcan route as I originally said no more than £200 as my limit and like the stopping of the disc brakes, also the frame is a little tougher 7005 aluminium too, so great to upgrade in the future.
    Cheers
